Abstract:

It is likely that future aircraft will contain a central data base containing feature details, ground elevation, low flying obstruction data, intelligence and mission data. Recent advances in technology have made it possible to implement such a data base within an aircraft. The existence of a central data base facilitates many new functions for both low level ground attack and air defence aircraft. These functions include improved moving map displays, precision navigation systems, covert radar shadowing, surface to air missile site intervisibility, and perspective terrain displays for use in adverse visibility conditions. The integration of such a system is currently being finalised and forms part of an on going flight trials program in fixed wing jet aircraft. Author
