Abstract:

Avco Corporations Systems Division designed and developed an engineered Pulsed Acoustic Vortex Sensing System PAVSS. This system is capable of real-time detection, tracking, recording, and graphic display of aircraft trailing vortices. This volume of the report summarizes the background and accomplishments of the PAVSS program carried out by Avco, and presents Avcos recommendation that further work on the PAVSS would not be economically sound.
