The aerodynamic load-carrying body in the form of short thick wing
with small lengthening joining of the functions of the wing and fuselage.
2. The profile of the flying vehicle body ensuring laminar airflow
in the boundary layer of the larger part of upper surfaces of the
vehicle, permitting to install on the upper part of stern the vortex
boundary layer airflow control system thus ensuring steady airflow
around the vehicle body. The vehicle body airfoil allows to install
an air cushion landing gear on the lower flying vehicle surface.
3. The vortex boundary layer airflow control system mounted on the
stern surface ensures steady airflow around the body of the vehicles
under all flight conditions, including take-off and landing at high
angles of attack.
4. The jet air cushion landing gear, ensuring takeoff and landing
of the flying vehicle on airfields of any category, including short
runway (500 meters) airfields, ground and water surfaces.
5. Large volumes of the vehicle permit to mount the fuel system using
both the gas and traditional fuel, which reduces the operating expenses
and considerably in creases the environmental safety parameters of
6. The location of main power units and auxiliary engines inside the
vehicle permits to use high efficiency noise-suppression and fire-fighting
7. Main thrust by-pass turbojet engines with afterburners for takeoff
and landing and flat nozzles with thrust vector control, including
8. Auxiliary dual generator tur-boshaft engines ensure economy mode
of operation of vortex boundary layer airflow control system providing
for steady airflow around the body of the vehicle during cruiser flight
and accelerated air cushion mode of operation during takeoff and landing.
9. Auxiliary control power units ensure stability and control of the
vehicle during takeoff and landing.
10. Use of composite materials in the body and tail unit of the vehicle
ensures low weight of structure, maintainability, long service life
and high corrosion-resistance of the vehicle structure.
All the specified technical concepts implemented in flying vehicles
"EKIP" are logically connected and supplement each other.
