Disposed on each wing of an aircraft adjacent the wing tip is at least one deflector mechanism for twisting the wings as part of a control system for alleviating a gust load on the wing. The wing twisting is performed in conjunction with a vertical motion sensor, a sensor signal processor, and a deflector controller. The vertical motion sensor measures the vertical motion of the wing tip in response to the gust load on the wing and generates a sensor output signal. A sensor signal processor generates a deflector control signal in response to the sensor o...
1. A control system for alleviating a gust load on an aircraft wing having upper and lower surfaces, a leading edge, a wing tip and wing slots, the control system comprising:a first slat and a second slat each having outer surfaces and being linearly reciprocatable out of a receiving pair of the wing slots formed in the upper and lower surfaces of the leading edge of the wing adjacent the wing tip, the first and second slats being outwardly deployable from the wing slots for generating a deflector torque on the wing such that the deflector torque effects...
