EAGLES is a novel high-throughput , low cost glider based airlift system that provides sustainment logistics to small distributed units without need for air base infrastructure, or air-superiority in time-constrained scenarios. This Phase II proposal is for flight demonstration of the Expendable Airlift Glider Expeditionary Logistics System (EAGELS). The proposed effort conducts preliminary design of an Objective EAGELS system to meet logistical delivery requirements in support of Ship To Objective Maneuver (STOM) capabilities. Key attributes of the Objective design are then validated through scaled flight demonstration.
