Actuated forebody strakes

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #4917333.

Actuated forebody strakes provide yaw control at high angles of attack. In one embodiment, the strakes are axially slidable in the forebody to be deployed out of slots provided for the strakes in the forebody. In another embodiment, the strakes are pivotally connected at the tip of the strakes to pivot radially outwardly out of the slots provided in the forebody. In another embodiment, the forebody is provided with either a single strake or two strakes and the forebody is rotatable to vary the radial location of the strake or strakes. All embodiments achieve significant yaw control capability over a wide angle of attack and sideslip ranges.
