A vehicle such as a missile (20) includes an aerodynamically shaped missile body (22) having a longitudinal centerline, a set of control surfaces (26) joined to the missile body (22), and, preferably, a propulsion system (28) operable to drive the missile body (22) forwardly. A cylindrical rotational bearing (32) is mounted on the missile body (22) with its cylindrical axis parallel to the longitudinal centerline (24) of the missile body. A flexible band wing (38) is supported from the rotational bearing (32). The flexible band wing (38) may rotate about...
A vehicle, comprising: an aerodynamically shaped body having a curved outer surface and a longitudinal centerline; means for controlling the direction of motion of the body; a flexible band wing supported from the body, said flexible band wing forming an arc extending parallel to a portion of the curved outer surface of the body; and means for permitting the flexible band wing to freely rotate about the curved outer surface of the body responsive to aerodynamic forces exerted on the body and the flexible band wing.
