“Spacematic” Monitoring System

1998-09-15
982138
Pneumatic, manually operated, drilling machines are used to produce a significant proportion of all holes drilled during wing manufacture. Drilling machine design and the manual drilling process has not changed significantly in decades. By employing miniature, low power, electronics and interfacing techniques, a monitoring system has been developed. This system enables improved process control of the manual drilling operation. Machine calibration management, measurement of drill performance, jig drilling error control and asset management are some of the benefits attainable. This project will hopefully encourage others to discover the potential for improving historically established processes, by employing modern technological developments.

670571
Five XC-142 aircraft have been manufactured to provide operational prototypes of a V/STOL tactical transport for tri-service evaluation. This paper presents a description of the flight control and stability augmentation systems. Special emphasis is placed on the programmed functions which are characteristic of VTOL airplanes. Proposed changes in the control systems of production models of the C-142 are identified, and the simulation and flight test programs are outlined.

Winging It in the 1980's: Why Guidelines are Needed for Cockpit Automation

1984-10-01
841634
There have been many reasons for the introduction of automation into the cockpit of the modern airliner. In some cases the forces driving technology have caused the design of automated systems which compromise the ability of the pilot to fulfill his responsibilities for the safety of the airplane under his command. This paper will examine how these forces can lead to unnecessary cockpit automation, and will discuss what must be done to avoid the introduction of automated systems which have the effect of removing the human operator from the information and control processes.
