Paper Abstract

The Boeing Active Flow Control (AFC) System (BAFCS) is a DARPA sponsored program to develop AFC technology to achieve a significant increase in payload for the V-22 tiltrotor vehicle. The program includes Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis, wind tunnel testing and development of smart materials based AFC actuators. This paper will provide an overview of the program and its interrelationships, as well as concentrating on the development of the AFC actuators.
