The technical requirements for the simulation of a helicopter towing an aircraft while performing a MAD mission are identified. Several technical solutions to achieve high stability during the mission are presented. In Phase I, a simulation will be set up to begin trade studies on the proposed mission. Also, if needed, flight tests will be conducted in Phase I, as proof-of-concept validation. In Phase II, the designs will be refined and a spiral development of simulation and flight tests will be performed.
