Abstract:

The nature of operations, variety of missions and configurations, and requirement for rapid response of fleet tactical aircraft has given rise to a unique problem within the Naval Aviation community, this being the interface between the aircrews and the aircraft performance prediction information supplied via charts and data in the Naval Air Training and Operating Procedures Standardization NATOPS Manuals. The data presented are not optimally used due to the method of presentation and the time and effort required to extract useful predictions. This investigation addressed the problem by developing a suitable method of NATOPS curve presentation that has sufficient simplicity and accuracy for application to current compact computers. The procedure is defined and numerical algorithms produced which demonstrate the feasibility and desirability of this type of implementation. Author
