The design of an Advanced Short Take-Off, Vertical Landing (ASTOVL) poses a major challenge. A successful aircraft of this type with a well integrated airframe and power plant must compete with Conventional Take-Off and Landing (CTOL) aircraft in the combat arena, while keeping the advantage of operations from short fields and small aircraft carriers.

To achieve a performance similar to those of CTOL planes, the recourse to a variable cycle engine appears to be a suitable solution for ASTOVL aircraft. One such design is the remote lift fan engine.

In this paper several alternatives are discussed and four engine designs based on a high performance low bypass core engine, exploiting the opportunity of variable cycle, are studied and compared. Two of these, the shaft driven and the Low Pressure Compressor exit bleed driven remote fans are predicted to be suitable alternatives.
