      The Northrop Grumman E-8 Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) is a United States Air Force airborne ground surveillance, battle management and command and control aircraft. It tracks ground vehicles and some aircraft, collects imagery, and relays tactical pictures to ground and air theater commanders. The aircraft is operated by both active duty U.S. Air Force and Air Manufacturer: Grumman Aerospace Corporation, . Design and Development of the Blackbird: Challenges and Lessons Learned Peter W. Merlin* TYBRIN Corporation, NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, California, The Lockheed Blackbirds hold a unique place in the development of aeronautics. In their day, the A, YF, M, D, and SR variants outperformed all other jet airplanes.

      This book, therefore, will primarily act as an introduction to the whole field of aircraft design leading towards the subjects summarized in Fig. It will not attempt to duplicate material found in existing design books, but will give information about the whole aircraft design environment together with descriptions of aircraft and. As part of the exhibit, they assembled a list of 25 engines that illustrates the development of major engine types used in military, commercial, and private aircraft. (Fo r more information, visit.

All in all, a very good introduction to aircraft piston engines. Provides a basic technical description of basic design and operation of piston engines, then moves into the history and development. While there is little detail on most engines discussed, it does cover most of /5(13).

This is the history, development and application of piston aero engines, from those used in the Wright Brother's pioneering aircraft at the beginning of the century to the small machines which power microlights today/5(14).

The story of their development is ably told in Herschel Smith’s A History of Aircraft Piston Engines: From the Manly Balzer to the Continental Tiara. Abundantly illustrated and engagingly narrated, it provides a detailed historical survey of aircraft piston engines from the turn of the 20th century to the book’s publication in /5(22).

Although numerous books have been published on all of the more common World War II aircraft and several books have been published on engines, rarely have the two been brought together.

Allied Aircraft Piston Engines of World War II offers an interesting look at the technology that was so important to eventual Allied victory.

The book is organized into separate sections on British and U.S. aircraft piston engines/5(24). engines were far too heavy and produced insufficient power for aircraft; an alternative source of power would have to be found.

McCutcheon. During the period between the World Wars, aircraft engines improved dramatically and made possible unprecedented progress in aircraft design. Almost no serious work on aircraft engine history written during the past 50 years fails to reference Robert Schlaifer’s and Sam Heron’s fine history of aircraft engine and fuel development.

It is noteworthy that with very few exceptions, almost all improvements in aircraft speed and load-carrying capability during World War II came from increased engine power and not from aerodynamic, structure, or system improvements in airframes.sing: aircraft engines.
