    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (768 KB)

    Cockpits are rapidly changing from dedicated instruments to multifunction displays, integrated controls, and computer controlled subsystems. Solid-state displays, voice recognition, and artificial intelligence are just a few of the emerging technologies that will help the pilot perform his mission in the future. Early investigations involving mission analysis, sensor data, software development, an... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (679 KB)

    Flight Data Analysis and Display, FDAD, is a hardware and software tool that permits the monitoring of the hardware and software of a multi-processor Electronic Countermeasure, ECM, system in a non-interfering mode. FDAD monitors user-defined memory addresses and hardware lines and displays in real-time the changes to these locations. Data is also stored for subsequent analysis and display. This t...

  • Robotic Air Vehicle: A Pilot's Perspective

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):8 - 11
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (682 KB)

    This paper focuses on concepts and technologies required to develop a robotic air vehicle (RAV). A vehicle of this type has the capability to be a launch and forget weapon system. The authors are engineers and pilots so they view both the technical approach and piloting issues with equal importance. RAV must have the machine intelligence to make decisions within the mission and battlefield constra... View full abstract»

  • A Smart Low-Power Meteorological System

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):16 - 19
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2524 KB)

    A new low-power instrument to measure meteorological parameters has been developed. The instrument is based on an intelligent data cruncher concept: Fast sensor data rates are stored and process to yield a variety of answers for each parameter, at slower data rates, as appropriate. Special methods are used to achieve these results with an average current drain of under one mA, including sensors. S... View full abstract»

    Advanced electronic navigation systems will be required for future merchant ship operations involving minimum crew manning. These systems will rely on some form of electronic chart, which will require continual and timely updating with the latest correction information. This paper describes a newly developed chart correction computer system capable of automatically updating electronic charts via s... View full abstract»
