Main article: Flight recorder Commercial aircraft cockpit data recorders, commonly known as "black boxes", store flight information and audio from the cockpit.

They are often recovered from an aircraft after a crash to determine control settings and other parameters during the incident.

Heavy precipitation as sensed by radar or severe turbulence as sensed by lightning activity are both indications of strong convective activity and severe turbulence, and weather systems allow pilots to deviate around these areas. Lightning detectors like the Stormscope or Strikefinder have become inexpensive enough that they are practical for light aircraft.

In addition to radar and lightning detection, observations and extended radar pictures such as NEXRAD are now available through satellite data connections, allowing pilots to see weather conditions far beyond the range of their own in-flight systems. Modern displays allow weather information to be integrated with moving maps, terrain, and traffic onto a single screen, greatly simplifying navigation. Modern weather systems also include wind shear and turbulence detection and terrain and traffic warning systems.

Health and usage monitoring systems HUMS are integrated with aircraft management computers to give maintainers early warnings of parts that will need replacement.


The integrated modular avionics concept proposes an integrated architecture with application software portable across an assembly of common hardware modules. It has been used in fourth generation jet fighters and the latest generation of airliners.

Mission or tactical avionics[ edit ] Military aircraft have been designed either to deliver a weapon or to be the eyes and ears of other weapon systems.

The vast array of sensors available to the military is used for whatever tactical means required. Police and EMS aircraft also carry sophisticated tactical sensors. Military communications[ edit ] While aircraft communications provide the backbone for safe flight, the tactical systems are designed to withstand the rigors of the battle field. Radar[ edit ] Airborne radar was one of the first tactical sensors.

The benefit of altitude providing range has meant a significant focus on airborne radar technologies. The military uses radar in fast jets to help pilots fly at low levels.

While the civil market has had weather radar for a while, there are strict rules about using it to navigate the aircraft. Maritime support aircraft can drop active and passive sonar devices sonobuoys and these are also used to determine the location of enemy submarines. Electro-Optics[ edit ] Electro-optic systems include devices such as the head-up display HUD , forward looking infrared FLIR , infra-red search and track and other passive infrared devices Passive infrared sensor.

These are all used to provide imagery and information to the flight crew. This imagery is used for everything from search and rescue to navigational aids and target acquisition. They can be used to launch devices in some cases automatically to counter direct threats against the aircraft.

They are also used to determine the state of a threat and identify it. Army's cancelled Comanche helicopter program, the monocular display uses Collins optics and BAE Systems symbol generation to provide situational awareness to pilots in day and nighttime conditions. The daytime configuration weighs 9. It shows the pilot head-up display HUD symbology, including aircraft flight, engine performance and weapons information.

The unit can be expanded to include head tracking and weapons cueing capabilities. The CP1A comes in air- and conduction-cooled versions and is designed for use in flight computers, engine management systems and mission computers in various aircraft, according to a company spokesman.

The PXI contains a 1. The PXI's processor boosts the controllers' overall performance by 50 percent compared to those running a 2. The PXI controllers are designed for applications that require analysis or system development like military and aerospace communications or automatic test equipment.

The ceilometer has an effective range of 0 to 25, feet in all weather conditions and a minimum measurement cycle of two seconds. The CL31 fully is automatic with extensive self-diagnostics and was designed for aviation and meteorological applications. The fusion of the data streams enables constant, all-attitude tracking, even when the field of view is exceeded or light sources are blocked.

The Hy-BIRD's optical technology allows for six degrees-of-freedom tracking times per second, while its hybrid mode tracks 70 to 75 times per second. In instances where the optical tracker loses line-of-sight contact with its light source, the inertial sensor continues to track yaw, pitch and roll angles until the optical sensor becomes operational.

All of the unit's functions are independent, can be programmed for either synchro or resolver formats and are formatted for single- or multi-speed applications.
