Progress in coordinating the design of airborne radar equipment with the airframe is discussed, emphasizing such basic design characteristics as accessibility, form factor, heat dissipation, altitude, shock, vibration. R-F noise and primary power supply. A review of the scope of present-day installation problems follows, giving specific examples of coordinated design. Suggestions for improving current design practices include an early exchange of information among all agencies concerned, close liaison as the design unfolds, and throughout, an appreciative understanding of each others problems.
