A digital longitudinal stability augmentation system was designed and installed in the Augmentor Wing Research Aircraft by the Flight Research Laboratory of the National Aeronautical Establishment. This system partially replaced the computer-controlled control and display system called STOLAND owned by NASA Ames Research Center that was removed from the aircraft prior to its return to Canada. The computer system is described and the software flow charts are illustrated. Brief comments on the performance of the system during the flight test program are included.
