    Most navigation systems proposed have been so radical as to require a revolution for their implementation. The system described herein would employ existing ground and airborne equipment with the addition of a small, new unit in the aircraft. This unit would employ only well-known circuits and techniques. The working of the system is explained, and data are presented on the accuracy to be expected... View full abstract»

    In order to meet operational requirements high pulse position accuracy is required for the reply-code pulses transmitted by the ATC Transponder. The use of a magnetostriction delay line as the primary delay element for positioning the constituent pulses of the reply code groups is discussed. The design of a magnetostriction delay line for this purpose is discussed and a method for remote selection... View full abstract»

  • The Role of the Design Engineer in the Field Support of Complex Airborne Electronic Equipment

    Publication Year: 1956 , Page(s): 117 - 121

    The success of a complex airborne electronic equipment is highly dependent upon a well-planned and timely implemented field support program. The design engineer, however, plays a very fundamental and basic role and the fulfilment of his responsibilities is of major importance. In following good engineering design practice he must consider the requirements imposed by the field. Among these are pack... View full abstract»

  • The Probe Excited Airframe as a High Frequency Antenna

    Publication Year: 1956 , Page(s): 121 - 124

    An electrically isolated probe mounted on an airframe extremity has been investigated as a means of exciting the airframe as a high-frequency antenna. The probe maintains most of the advantages of isolated structure or ``cap'' type antennas over fixed wires, and it does not require a break in basic airframe structure. Measurements have been made of radiation patterns and impedance of such a probe ... View full abstract»

  • The Radar Display as a Linear Filter

    Publication Year: 1956 , Page(s): 124 - 128

    When an intensity-modulated cathode ray tube is fed by an electronic gamma-correction circuit to compensate for the tube power law, the over-all system may be interpreted as a linear filter. It is shown that if the electron distribution within the beam is Gaussian, then (for at least some applications) the corresponding equivalent filter has a Gaussian amplitude characteristic and zero phase shift...

  • Engineering Techniques in the Simulator Evaluation of Flight Information Displays

    Publication Year: 1956 , Page(s): 128 - 135
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5348 KB)  

    Display evaluation by simulator methods is analyzed from the point of view of reducing the operational delays in producing an experimental display, providing an experimental system, and obtaining performance data. The techniques recommended to relieve the problem are: display synthesis, programmable facilities, automatic processing of syllabuses, flexible function generation and function sequencin...
