Owing to the high sweep angle and the slender structure, much less taking-off lift is produced by the horizontal taking-off hypersonic vehicle compared with general aircrafts. This paper aims at introducing the thrust vectoring technology into the taking-off stage of hypersonic vehicle, and discussing the effect of thrust vectoring technology on taking-off performance. The nonlinear hypersonic model with the thrust vectoring nozzle and retractable canard wings is firstly established in this paper. Then the taking-off process is divided into three parts, and the thrust vectoring technology is applied to these three parts respectively. Last, the simulation results indicate that the thrust vectoring technology obviously improves the taking-off performance of the hypersonic vehicle and effectively solves the problem of lacking lift.
