    Requisite to landing an aircraft automatically is the perception of its altitude. This report attempts to resolve the theoretical accuracy of an aircraft's altitude by standard statistical equations for the propagation of error. Available aircraft trajectory data have been used to determine bandwidth of aircraft trajectories during approach and ``landing.'' Such data also have been incorporated to... View full abstract»

    After more than two years' experience, it has been determined that airborne UHF communications is satisfactory. Many unforeseen types of interference have been found, some of them serious. Antenna patterns on aircraft are not ideal, but are usable. The newest subminiature airborne transceiver has undergone unique operational engineering tests. Results show that its design is highly desirable from ... View full abstract»

    Efficient installation of airborne electronic equipment requires adequate data to design a heat removal system for the airplane. For many years aircraft generators have been supplied with rating charts to define their cooling requirements: electronic equipment now requires similar treatment. The form of the chart depends on the nature of the equipment, but consists, essentially, of a nomograph sho... View full abstract»

    The flexibility of the flight director to include practically any all-weather mission is accomplished by the coupling of the basic navigation data to the central flight director computer with special signal-shaping circuits designed on a modular basis. This paper describes the nature of these mission-coupling devices and an extension of their use to improve the basic flight panel information. View full abstract»

  • The Accuracy of the VHF Omni-Range System of Aircraft Navigation; A Statistical Study

    Publication Year: 1955, Page(s):25 - 37
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4795 KB)

    This paper describes a statistical treatment of the errors encountered in the VHF Omni-Range Navigation System. The first part of the paper consists of a rudimentary discussion of statistical theory which serves to acquaint the reader with the methods used in the second portion of the report. Each of ten different errors are described in terms of a normal distribution function with the parameters ... View full abstract»

  • Effect of Internal Fluctuations and Scanning on Clutter Attenuation in MTI Radar

    Publication Year: 1955, Page(s):37 - 41

    The approximate effect of internal fluctuations and scanning on clutter attenuation in MTI radar is derived and the results presented on two charts. It is proposed that derivative antenna patterns be used to increase the clutter attenuation when scanning. The theoretical improvement from the use of derivatives is appreciable, as shown on the second chart. View full abstract»
