Abstract:

This document is in support of Amendment 1 of Military Specification MIL-F-9490D, Flight Control Systems-Design, Installation and Test of, Piloted Aircraft, General Specification For and AFFDL-TR-74-116, Background Information and User Guide for MIL-F-949OD. In addition to substantiating background for the amended requirements, the document provides additional user guide information for interpretation and use of the specification. The bulk of this report addresses the interrelated topics of digital flight controls, fly- by-wire controls, and self-test and monitoring. These topics are addressed in many requirement areas. Of particular note are the additions of a redundancy management requirement and discussion, which were absent in the D revision, and the integration of software requirements for FCS design and documentation into the specification.
