Abstract:

An evaluation was made of the ANASW-12 automatic flight control system AFCS installed in the RL-23D to determine the suitability of the equipment for use in the RL-23D, and to determine the general acceptability of the ANASW-12 for use in Army fixed-wing aircraft. It was concluded that the AN ASW-12V automatic flight control system will be suitable for use in RL-23D airplanes when discrepancies and shortcomings are corrected. The ANASW-12V automatic flight control system appears to be acceptable for use in other Army fixed-wing aircraft. The universal aspects of the ANASW12V should be investigated thoroughly before type classification.
