Read the concluding thoughts. Page 9

The test itself produced a large collection of
force and moment data, on-body pressure data, and
off-body flow field measurements that will be used to
refine the configuration and strengthen design tools.
Northrop Grumman has built an aerodynamic
database to conduct flight simulation studies of the
designís features.

An all-wing design poses a
number of flight control challenges that when
overcome will provide a level of cruise efficiency
when combined with STOL performance previously
not obtained. Finally, given the comprehensiveness
of the test data, particularly as it relates to a specific three dimensional air vehicle configuration, will aidthe CFD developmental efforts for high-lift wings with advanced circulation-control technologies
