Potential control requirements of various propulsion systems are currently being studied for V/STOL aircraft applications. This paper identifies the considerations which will affect the design of propulsion control systems for both military and commercial aircraft. Of the requirements common to all configurations, the need for improved thrust control is emphasized as requiring total aircraft system trades to establish an approach which provides the desired power management performance with minimum weight and with maximum reliability and maintainability.
