    This paper deals with airborne Doppler velocity measuring systems. In particular, it deals with the character and limitations of the velocity data provided by such systems. The Doppler effect is discussed and quantitative expressions for the frequency shift are derived. The relationship between the Doppler shift and aircraft velocity is such as to show that the fundamental capability of a Doppler ... View full abstract»

    This paper is a report on a joint Bell-Bendix-Decca program to investigate the problems of flying a helicopter in remote areas under instrument flight conditions with presently available machines, the Decca navigator system, and other sensory equipment. The approach and transition phase to a remote landing spot under instrument conditions was of particular interest and present information displays... View full abstract»

    The recently developed SP-30 control system for commercial and military jet transport aircraft is discussed in this paper in terms of its operation, design, and performance. The modes of operation for a typical profile are summarized, and manual and automatic flight control features are described. Characteristic control equations are used to define the advanced automatic pilot principles which inc... View full abstract»

    Based on the experience gained during two years of simulation and flight testing of the air traffic control (atc) radar beacon system, this paper outlines the desired functional characteristics of an expanded beacon system for air traffic control and explains the operational factors involved. The expanded system would utilize recent developments in altitude transducers and multichannel activereado... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2704 KB)

    Junction transistors and diodes are used to replace tubes and relays in a newly designed one-light marker beacon receiver. Ten transistors and three diodes are combined in a dual conversion superheterodyne receiver circuit which draws less than one watt of power and which has a sensitivity of 500 ¿v. Pass-band selectivity is 80 kc minimum at the 6-db down points and less than 300 kc at the 60-db ... View full abstract»

    The Tacan radio air navigation aid has been adopted as a part of the common system of navigation in the United States. A study has been made of some of the problems involved in the implementation of the system. Predictions are made of the coverage to be expected in the air space surrounding a Tacan ground facility. The service to be expected in the presence of interfering Tacan signals is shown un... View full abstract»
