THE MULTI - ROLE MARITIME FIGHTER. ---  IF NOT NOW, WHEN? ---  IF NOT US, WHO?

MISSION SCENARIO:

It is the year 2015. The wars in the Middle East have been politically resolved; Not so, the need for energy. The international focus has returned to Southeast Asia, where the vast underwater oil resources of the South China sea are being developed.  In this region, well known for piracy and terrorist operations, the need for a low-profile, rapid response, military presence is being expressed by the international community.

This Far East scenario was foreseen as far back as 1995.  Shortly thereafter, an unsolicited proposal was submitted to DARPA, and to the U.S. Navy, for a short-takeoff highly-maneuverable airborne system designed to provide both long-range high altitude surveillance and close-in ASW warfighter capability over the expanse of the South China sea, without the need for typical air base, or carrier strike force, support.

The ultra-high lift technology we developed is not to be found on other aircraft, few of which are capable of long-range anti-submarine operations  launching from assault carriers or very small airstrips. This innovative technology is original and proprietary; and, involves radically new aspects of aerodynamic theory.
