    Neither airborne self-contained nor ground-based air-navigation systems can by themselves completely meet the requirements of present day aircraft for both accuracy and continuity or positional and steering data. It is shown how dead-reckoning, providing continuity and reliability through the use of air-derived acceleration or velocity data, combined with intermittent ``fixing'' by employment of a...

  • Reliability Through Redundancy

    Publication Year: 1956, Page(s):16 - 20

    As requirements for automaticity cause airborne electronic systems to grow in complexity, reliability tends to become a limiting factor to system success. Because of the small probability that a large number of components will all operate successfully at once, even though individual reliabilities are high, complex systems are inherently unreliable. Efforts to better system reliability through impr... View full abstract»

  • Some Operational Advantages of Pictorial Navigation Displays

    Publication Year: 1956, Page(s):21 - 28

    In the preparation of an evaluation program for several pictorial navigation displays, developed under sponsorship of the Air Navigation Development Board, it was necessary to make a study of possible operational advantages of the use of such displays. When compared to conventional symbolic instrumentation for displaying navigation information, the pictorial displays appear to have three primary a... View full abstract»

  • An Evaluation of High Frequency Antennas for a Large Jet Airplane

    Publication Year: 1956, Page(s):28 - 32
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (936 KB)

    The ability of aircraft cap-type high frequency antennas to act as efficient radiators is a subject of much current interest. In most instances the fixed-wire type hf antenna is incorrectly assumed to be superior to flush cap-type antennas. In this paper a performance comparison of five different hf communication antenna configurations for a large high speed aircraft is presented. These antennas i... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4952 KB)

    The radio beam coupler system has been recently developed as an en route navigation and approach aid for modem transport and bombing aircraft. It is applicable to both military and commercial operations. The system comprises an electronic amplifier and cockpit switching elements for coupling the automatic pilot to VOR and ILS radio facilities. Accuracy and efficiency of control is improved over pr...
