Abstract: It should be pointed out at the outset that the motivation for this paper comes from two sources which must share both the credit and the blame with the authors. First, the technical data presented in this report is based on a study performed during 1962-1963 by the Hughes Aircraft Company for the Supersonic Transport Program Office of the Federal Aviation Agency. References 1 and 2 have documented the findings of this study entitled, “Control Data Requirements Investigation for the Optimization of Fuel for Supersonic Transport Vehicles.” It was under the direction of the FAA that the basic SST performance simulation, described in reference 3, used to generate the date presented in this paper was developed. The particular areas of investigation and points of emphasis comprising this paper are due in great measure to the continuing suggestions, contributions, and dedication of Major W.L. (Bill) Polhemus, USAF (Ret.), to the subject of safe commercial supersonic navigation.
