Abstract:

The design and preliminary testing of a microcomputer based flight monitor and data recorder, utilizing magnetic bubble memory, is reported. Component selection, software design and magnetic bubble storage system construction and testing are discussed. Difficulties encountered, both in software and bubble testing are reviewed, with results and remaining work summarized. Magnetic bubble memory technology is reviewed and its potential as a reliable, dense, low cost, non-volatile recording medium is noted. It is proposed that the microprocessor be utilized as a flight monitoring as well as a recording device to detect and report imminent extremis situations.
