Abstract:

The UG897B-1 automatic test set is an automated, tape-programmed, mobile, flight line tester for the F-101B Automatic Flight Control System AFCS and Central Air Data Computer CADC. It is capable of 1 functional flight line checking of the F-101B AFCS and CADC, 2 rapid periodic inspection of the AFCS, 3 self-monitored operation, thus eliminating any need for periodic calibration, and 4 providing complete electronic checkout capability of the F-101B AFCS and CADC. The UG897B-1 proved both highly accurate and reliable to an extreme not often found in this type of eq ipment. During the evaluation, the test set accurately located all induced and actual flight malfunctions assigned to it. Use of the set reduced average flight line troubleshoot time by an estimated 80 and, in many cases, eliminated a functional check flight. This represented a considerable savings in manpower, flight time and dollars. The tester has considerable growth potential toward checking other electrical systems and aircraft. Author
