Abstract
THE PROPOSED RESEARCH EFFORT CONSIDERS A DEVICE WITH SIGNIFICANT POTENTIAL FOR ANTI-SIMULATION: A NEAR-WAKE TETHER. THIS DEVICE RELIES UPON THE ALTERATION OF INITIAL CONDITIONS TO PRODUCE A SIGNIFICANTLY DISRUPTED WAKE BY INTRODUCING STREAMWISE AND CROSSSTREAM VORTICITY INTO THE WAKE. THE TECHNIQUE IS VERY GENERAL AND ENVISIONED TO FUNCTION AT ALL ALTITUDES OF INTEREST. THE TECHNICAL APPROACH INCLUDES WAKE FLUID MECHANICS MODELING, AEROTHERMODYNAMICS ANALYSIS, AND FLIGHT STABILITY CHARACTERIZATION. A FEASIBILITY EXPERIMENT FOR GROUND-TEST EVALUATION WILL ALSO BE DESIGNED.
