Abstract:

This thesis generates closed-form equations for significant and frequently used Naval Air Training and Operating Procedure Standardization NATOPS performance charts for the H-46D and H-46A with T58-GE-10 engines helicopters. These equations are developed into interactive software for the Hewlett-Packard HP-41CV hand-held programmable calculator. With this software installed in the calculator the user is able to calculate numerous NATOPS performance parameters expeditiously, with reduced risk of error both prior to and in flight.
