Abstract
CRAFT Tech proposes the development of an innovative design optimization tool called"AeroRCS"which will simultaneously solve for both aerodynamic performance as well as electromagnetic reflectivity (Radar Cross Section). When operated in an automated environment, AeroRCS will intelligently"morph"and steer the shape to converge on an optimal solutions. AeroRCS will be demonstrated by developing innovative external weapons carriage concepts aimed at expanding the weapons loadout for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter with minimal impact to mission performance/range and aircraft survivability. Limited proof-of-concept testing will be performed in Phase I with Phase II emphasizing more extensive validation testing to characterize Radar Cross Section (RCS), aerodynamic performance, and store separation.
