The General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin) F-16 VISTA ("Variable stability In-flight Simulator Test Aircraft") is an experimental aircraft, derived from the F-16 Fighting Falcon, which was modified as a joint venture between General Dynamics and Calspan for use by the USAF. The VISTA program was considered successful, but the thrust vector control (TVC) never entered production fighter versions.

  • El General Dynamics F-16 VISTA ("Variable stability In-flight Simulator Test Aircraft") es un caza experimental, derivado del F-16 Fighting Falcon.​ (es)
  • Le General Dynamics F-16 VISTA (pour « Variable stability In-flight Simulator Test Aircraft », signifiant « Avion de simulation et de tests en vol à stabilité variable »), également désigné F-16 MATV (pour « Multi-Axis Thrust-Vectoring », signifiant « poussée vectorielle multi-axiale »), était un avion expérimental américain, dérivé du F-16 Fighting Falcon et conçu pour l'US Air Force par une coentreprise entre General Dynamics — désormais Lockheed Martin — et (en) — un sous-traitant de General Dynamics — au début des années 1990. Il fut l'un des trois programmes menés à l'époque pour l'étude de systèmes améliorant la manœuvrabilité des avions de combat dans des situations difficiles ou risquées : Le programme High Alpha Research Vehicle — HARV, un F-18 de préproduction modifié — était un banc d'essais volant permettant de produire des données sur le vol aux fortes incidences et de valider des simulations informatiques et des tests en soufflerie, tandis que le X-31 était une étude de la vectorisation de la poussée pour améliorer la manœuvrabilité en combat rapproché. De son côté, le programme MATV/VISTA eut pour objectif de démontrer l'application d'un système de poussée vectorielle sur un appareil opérationnel, ainsi que d'offrir à l'US Air Force un avion unique, capable de simuler en vol le comportement d'autres avions, grâce à un système de commandes de vol entièrement programmable. Considéré comme réussi, il améliorait de manière significative la manœuvrabilité de l'avion dans les situations de décrochage, mais il peina toutefois à trouver des financements et fut abandonné, le système de vectorisation de la poussée ne trouvant alors pas de débouché sur une version de production d'avion de combat. Prenant fin en 1997, il permit néanmoins de concevoir un « HUD virtuel » et un système de commandes vocales directes, qui furent tous-deux réutilisés dans la conception du cockpit ultramoderne du futur chasseur-bombardier furtif F-35 Lightning II. De nos jours, l'avion est toujours utilisé par l'US Air Force pour la formation des pilotes d'essai et la mise en application de projets universitaires poussés. (fr)

  • The General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin) F-16 VISTA ("Variable stability In-flight Simulator Test Aircraft") is an experimental aircraft, derived from the F-16 Fighting Falcon, which was modified as a joint venture between General Dynamics and Calspan for use by the USAF. The F-16 VISTA testbed aircraft incorporated a multi-axis thrust vectoring (MATV) engine nozzle that provides for more active control of the aircraft in a post-stall situation. The resulting aircraft is supermaneuverable, retaining pitch and yaw control at angles of attack beyond which the traditional control surfaces cannot change attitude. The VISTA program was considered successful, but the thrust vector control (TVC) never entered production fighter versions. The program was notable for the development of Direct Voice Input and the "Virtual HUD", which were both eventually to be incorporated into the cockpit design for the F-35 Lightning II. The STOVL F-35 variants also incorporate MATV while hovering to provide attitude control. The VISTA aircraft is now operated and maintained by Calspan for the US Air Force Test Pilot School at Edwards Air Force Base. It is regularly used in student curriculum sorties, and other special academic projects. (en)
  • O General Dynamics (agora Lockheed Martin) F-16 VISTA ("Variable stability In-flight Simulator Test Aircraft", Aeronave de testes de estabilidade variável e simulação) é uma aeronave experimental derivada do F-16 Fighting Falcon, o qual foi modificado em conjunto pela General Dynamics e para uso da Força Aérea dos Estados Unidos. O F-16 VISTA incorporou um sistema múltiplo de eixos de empuxo vetorial (MATV), possibilitando maior controle ativo da aeronave em situações . Seu programa foi notável pelo desenvolvimento do DVI e Virtual HUD, os quais ambos foram eventualmente incorporados no cockpit do F-35 Lightning II. O F-35 também incorporou a tecnologia proveniente de testes de empuxo vetorial do VISTA. A aeronave continua ativa e operacional para a escola de pilotos de testes da Força Aérea dos Estados Unidos na Califórnia, sendo usada por estudantes e projetos de pesquisas especiais. (pt)
