hopefully this goes beyond just a standard one off prototype that doesn't just go black when its deemed the effectiveness of the systems that they are
experimenting with are too great or expensive to let out in the open.
"One part of this approach is to draw air from the engine, before blowing it supersonically through narrow slats in the trailing edge of the wing to
provide control, while the other is to employ "fluidic thrust vectoring"".
I wonder what the latency could be of the correction systems.... are we talking using piezo valves to make the most minute coarse direction
changes.... or something more standard?
Is this a more feasible solution to aircraft control at high altitudes and speeds?
