Description: The F-15 ACTIVE (Advanced Control Technology for Integrated Vehicles) in a test bay in the Integrated Test Facility (ITF) at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, California, Sept. 18, 1995. A key feature of the ACTIVE research project is the evaluation of the thrust vectoring nozzles seen here, developed by Pratt and Whitney, that could enhance high-angle of attack control and maneuverability on future aircraft.
