Abstract : A brief analysis demonstrates the technique of, and potential payoffs accruing through, a preliminary design approach which views pilot, vehicle, and automatic flight control system as an integrated system. The technique facilitates the establishment and assessment of successive stability augmentation systems and automatic flight control systems functional complexity levels and the selection of a final configuration, justifiable by operational and handling quality information, which results in maximum benefit per unit cost. Cost is measured in terms of unreliability, maintenance, down time, and dollar expenditures. (Author)
