In the field of today’s military aircraft engines, the engine control system consists in most cases of hydromechanical controls, as such, with an electronic supervisory system. This type of control makes the integration of engine and aircraft systems rather difficult. Even with the Tornado engine which features a full authority electronic engine controller, only initial steps in systems integration are realized.

With the introduction of digital electronics into both the engine control and the aircraft systems, together with the availability of data highway systems, large scale systems integration can be envisaged on future fighter aircraft, with the resultant improvement in overall weapon system performance.

This paper puts forward a proposal for a control concept for a reheated fighter engine, and outlines possibilities for integration with aircraft systems.
