Abstract

This report presents problems of optimization of long-range trajectory for an unpowered flight vehicle at subsonic and transonic speed. The results may be recommended to have a new long range trajectory. The optimization problem is solved by numerical experiments while  the normal load factor (normal acceleration) is used as optimization variables with compliance to flight constraints. The focus problem of this study is the investigation of the possibility of trajectory expansion according to the criteria of the maximum range in the first stage of the trajectory.
