A Pontryagin maximum principle for an optimal control problem in three dimensional linearized compressible viscous flows subject to state constraints is established using the Ekeland variational principle. Since the system considered here is of coupled parabolic-hyperbolic type, the well developed control theory literature using abstract semigroup approach to linear and semilinear partial differential equations does not seem to contain problems of the type studied in this paper. The controls are distributed over a bounded domain, while the state variables are subject to a set of constraints and governed by the compressible Navier-Stokes equations linearized around a suitably regular base state. The maximum principle is of integral-type and obtained for minimizers of a tracking-type integral cost functional.
