The "Rockwell maybe" design probably is from Rockwell - similar to these designs.

The  Rockwell ejector augmented flow design managed to underscore what the Lockheed XV-4A "Hummingbird" had also demonstrated; there are way too many loses for such an ejector augmentation to work in full scale aircraft.  I'm glad further efforts with that technology have not been pursued.

To be honest,

I don't know if we displayed this Rockwell V/STOL aircraft before
or not !.

Wow, just wow  :o  these drawings are signed by my aircraft design mentor.
I spent a couple of years working with him on the design of the ATTA-3000 in the late 80's. Unfortunately he passed away in 1993 (IIRC).
I wish he could see what I am working on nowadays.
Thanks for sharing, this is awesome!

Hello all,
   Here's a drawing of the NR-356-035C. Its the predicessor of the 1982 Dorsal intake figher. That to is from the design progression that started with the XFV-12A ( NR-356). There was a interium design NR-356-026E,advanced wing-canard configuration. This had a longer fuselage,modified canard and a dorsal intake. I have only ever seen a top view of this A/C. Does anyone out there ever seen a 3-view of this configuation?  Enjoy the 3 view of the -035C

Its the report already posted above (http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/19840020669.pdf). Best case, a better scan, but I wouldn't bet money on that.
