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.]1. A method, comprising:discharging a working fluid through an outlet of an aircraft nozzle to produce thrust, the nozzle being in fluid communication with an aircraft working fluid source and having at least four vanes pivotally mounted across the outlet; andpivoting the vanes to change thrust direction during said discharging, said pivoting including adjusting convergence of the vanes to maintain a first throat area;modulating thrust magnitude during said discharging by pivoting the vanes to change from the first throat area ...
