Abstract:

The book provides an analysis and systematizes the basic results of foreign investigations into the automation of flight control of airplanes and helicopters. It presents the block diagrams and descriptions of the control systems of contemporary airplanes and helicopters, flexible aircraft, and also of adaptive self-tuning, with variable structure, self-organizing aviation systems. It examines the bionic principles of adaptation and the possibility of their use in control systems of aircraft, and also the problems of the automation of landings, flight at low and maximally low altitudes, and the integration of airborne equipment. It describes the methods for the display of flight information to the pilot, the system of semiautomatic control, the system for the prevention of the collision of airplanes in the air, landing systems, systems of profile flight, and contemporary complexes of airborne equipment.
