Abstract : The problem of monitoring aircraft performance during take-off ground run and indicating whether or not the take-off can be made safely is considered in relation to the take-off procedure commonly employed by the operators of transport aircraft. The argument is developed that a velocity/distance criterion is the correct choice for obtaining a true monitor of performance and that the ideal monitor should contain prediction in order to avoid delaying pilot action until a critical point in the take-off is reached. Equipment is described which has been developed around the operational concepts earlier outlined. The equations of prediction, the component parts of the predictor and the methods that can be employed to measure aircraft motion are described. Applications of the equipment to emergency stop, taxi and landing are also considered. (Author)
