The Boeing Active Flow Control (AFC) System (BAFCS) is a DARPA sponsored program to develop AFC technology to achieve a significant increase in payload for rotorcraft applications such as the V-22 tiltrotor vehicle. The program includes Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis, wind tunnel testing and development of smart material based AFC actuators. This paper will provide an overview of the program, concentrating on the development of the AFC actuators, and is an update of reference 1,2.
