Tailless technologies risk can be reduced by integrating a recovery parachute, performing wind tunnel test to create a FCS data base and having a flight control system architecture which provides reversion capability to baseline control laws.
For a compact inlet, the footprint should be investigated to fully understand the flow field generated. Wind tunnel testing can help predict steady state and dynamic distortion. Improved method to predict hammershock load and load distribution can help improve vehicle safety.
