The supersonic transport offers many benefits in passenger confidence and convenience; however, it poses new problems in economy and safety in flight. Recent advances in micro-miniature technology make possible applications of digital data processors to the solution of these problems. The paper includes a discussion of the functions of navigation, flight control, flight management, data link and inflight recording and maintenance. Micro-miniature circuit technology is also described as applied to the central flight management computer. Representative organizations are presented for several alternate processors.
