Application of Microprocessors to Aircraft Fly-By-Wire Hydraulic Actuation Systems, SAE Committee A-6 1983 831489

Actuation systems have been slow to take advantage of advancements in electronics and computer technology, now prevalent in other parts of advanced flight control systems. Two types of microprocessor-based actuator controllers are being developed which utilize these advancements. These controllers will allow the implementation of advanced reliable Fly-by-wire flight control systems which are compatible with distributed processing techniques. Benefits include reduced cost and weight, improved survivability and enhanced test and functional capability.
