    A phase controlled antenna system has been constructed for aircraft EW purposes. With only two radiating elements conventionally installed on top of the fuselage, the system is capable of introducing a 30 dB radiation pattern minimum to desired or optimized directions. The system uses computer controlled parallel down conversion technique, which gives the freedom to automatically adjust for any an... View full abstract»

    The systems integration of the 777 Airplane Information Management System (AIMS), both within the AIMS system and with the other systems on the airplane, represented the most complex system integration effort ever undertaken at Honeywell Air Transport Systems Division. The technological innovations in the AIMS design, coupled with an aggressive program schedule were major factors in the AIMS chall... View full abstract»

    This paper describes an innovative process for re-hosting test program sets from an existing tester for which they were originally prepared to operate on another tester. The process greatly reduces the time and cost usually required for offloading a test program set while retaining most of the original design and interface hardware View full abstract»

    Tower air traffic control is currently performed using several unintegrated systems. While each of these systems supports performing an isolated task, the compilation of tools presents a number of challenges. This paper reports ways in which the Tower Control Computer Complex (TCCC) will support and enhance user management of numerous systems. Areas that will be notably improved include the consis...
