Distributed propulsion systems for Air Vehicle

Distributed propulsion (DP) is a type of powered flight propulsion system for fixed-wing aircraft in which engines are distributed about a vessel. The vehicle thrust is produced from an array of propulsors located across the air vehicle.   Its goal is to increase performance in fuel efficiency, emissions, noise, landing …
