The object of the work was to assess a particular type of control law for a take-off and overshoot director. The basic law is simple and only two internal sensors are used. A twin-seat Hunter incorporating a dual head-up display system was used for the flight trials. Several versions of the director were built, flight tested and results analysed. Detailed description of the computer is given. The results indicate that the system could well form the basis for a complete take-off director. Author
