    The requirements and subsequent mechanization of the mission avionics of the US Navy's new fleet antisubmarine warfare helicopter, the SH-60F CV Inner Zone ASW Weapon System (CV HELO) are discussed. The overall system architecture is described, and its major functional elements are examined. These consist of five subsystems: tactical data and display, navigation, communication, sonar, and armament stores. Software and testing are briefly considered.<> View full abstract»

    A US Air Force perspective is given of the Integrated Communication Navigation Identification Avionics (ICNIA) program, a dual-service technology-development and laboratory demonstration effort aimed at reducing the volume and weight requirements for CNI avionics in the 1990s. A brief history of integrated avionics is followed by a description of ICNIA configurations under development. The major problems encountered by customers of CNI avionics are discussed. Applications and payoffs of the technology used are outlined. The role of ICNIA in the US Air Force reliability and maintainability program is examined. ICNIA software and fault tolerance and ICNIA logistics support are considered.<> View full abstract»

    Experiments are reported in which heads-up displays and voice input/output were implemented on an experimental pilot console. These displays and controls were developed interactively during the simulation of remotely piloted space vehicles (RPSVs) and US Space Station operations. Demonstrated and evaluated were seven heads-up reticle displays, two heads-up data displays, selection of displays by voice command, use of voice command to call for range and rate data, and the voice annunciation of alarms. The simulation laboratory architecture is described.<> View full abstract»

  • An advanced flight control and navigation system implementation for tactical helicopters

    US Army helicopters that will allow single-crewmember operability in tactical environments require a high degree of automation. A tightly integrated flight control and navigation system has been studied. An architecture is discussed which meets anticipated flight control and navigation requirements, at an acceptable weight, using techniques of functional and physical integration. The architecture maximizes the sharing of sensor and computational resources in a flight critical environment and uses modular equipment packaging, dual fault-tolerant tetrad ring-laser-gyro inertial measurement units, and triplex self-checking processor pair-based flight critical processing channels.<> View full abstract»
