An afterbody flow control system is used for aircraft or missile flow control to provide enhanced maneuverability and stabilization. A method of operating the flow control system is also described. The missile or aircraft comprises an afterbody and a forebody; at least one activatable flow effector on the missile or aircraft afterbody; at least one sensor having a signal, the at least one sensor being positioned to detect forces or flow conditions on the missile or aircraft afterbody; and a closed loop control system; wherein the closed loop control syst...
1. A missile or aircraft comprising: an afterbodya forebody andat least one sensor having an electrical signal;the missile or aircraft afterbody having a boattail andtail fins;the missile or aircraft experiencing drag during flight; andat least one electromechanical activatable flow effector or electromechanical active flow control device on the boattail or tail fins,wherein the at least one sensor is positioned to measure, estimate or predict a force or flow condition the missile or aircraft's afterbody, the at least one electromechanical activatable fl...
