Independently deflectable control surfaces are located on the trailing edge of the wing of a blended wing-body aircraft. The reconfiguration control system of the present invention controls the deflection of each control surface to optimize the spanwise lift distribution across the wing for each of several flight conditions, e.g., cruise, pitch maneuver, and high lift at low speed. The control surfaces are deflected and reconfigured to their predetermined optimal positions when the aircraft is in each of the aforementioned flight conditions. With respect...
What is claimed is: 1. A tailless aircraft, including: a wing having a trailing edge and independently deflectable flight control surfaces located along the trailing edge, the wing being capable during flight of generating a normal lifting force having a spanwise force distribution across the wing; and a control surface reconfiguration system wherein, for each of a plurality of different flight conditions, the flight control surfaces are selectively reconfigurable to respective predetermined positions, which in combination, optimize the spanwise force d...
