By reducing the RCS, the radars guiding the missiles would have less time to track the aircraft, complicating the attack. A follow-up review was performed by the operations group of the Development Projects Division of the CIA in January. ГЛАВНАЯ Отзывы и предложения КОЛЛЕГИ ТЕГИ ФОРУМ РЕКЛАМА НА САЙТЕ Правила Rss.

Вместо всего этого, дизайнеры решили поставить поворотный шарнир в середине пилотируемой части, обеспечив видение вниз для посадки, похожий перекос на нос можно видеть позже на Concorde. Дополнительные тестовые модели включали масштабные 1: Еще одним вопросом для пилота носимого самолёта явился носовой обзор при посадке.
Convair B-58 Hustler
Project Isinglass was developed as a result of the vulnerability of existing manned reconnaissance aircraft, such as the Lockheed U-2 and the Lockheed A , to Soviet air defenses in the early s, catalysed by the shooting down in May of Francis Gary Powers. It had a gross weight of 35, pounds and an empty weight of 15, pounds. Eric Hehs is the editor of Code One. Convair spent the first five months of refining the FISH design. Unlike standard ejection seats of the period, a protective clamshell would enclose the seat and the control stick with an attached oxygen cylinder, allowing the pilot to continue to fly even "turtled up" and ready for immediate egress. The wing area remained the same. The compartment also contained a scanning radar with a range of nautical miles.

It differed in having two of the J58 engines buried in the rear fuselage, and twin vertical surfaces at the rear. Rainbow was cancelled in The program schedule called for twenty aircraft, with the first flight planned twenty-seven months after go-ahead. The first of these studies, which began in , addressed ways to increase target range with minimal modifications to the basic B airframe. Though the Air Force authorized the development, design, and testing of the BB in October , uncertainty surrounding this model improvement forced the design team to assume the BA as the carrier.

Description: For Convair, the challenge was to create an entirely new design—a self-launched aircraft that met the mission requirements. The initial design avoided detection from threat radars by operating at high speeds and high altitudes. These configurations were evaluated by the US Air Force in terms of range, payload, gross weight, and other factors. The CIA continued studies into even higher performance aircraft, and studied replacing the A under Project Isinglass.
