A thrust directing mechanism to vector thrust and control discharge throat area with a number of vanes mounted across the passage. The mechanism includes a control link pivotally coupled to each of the vanes. The control link is selectively movable to correspondingly pivot the vanes and has at least two degrees of freedom corresponding to a two coordinate position. A desired orientation of the vanes may be determined as a function of the two coordinate position. The discharge exit area is contracted by adjusting convergence of the vanes. During convergen...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A thrust system, comprising:(a) an aircraft having a passage with an outlet configured to discharge working fluid to produce thrust;(b) a number of vanes pivotally mounted across said outlet to direct thrust, said number of vanes including at least a first vane, a second vane mounted adjacent said first vane, and a third vane mounted adjacent said second vane;(c) a thrust control linkage including a control link, said link being spaced apart from said first, second, and third vanes, said linkage further including:a first tie r...
