A METHOD TO IMPROVE T E RELIABILITY OF A DUAL FLIGHT-CONTROL YSTEM. Rept. on Flight Con rol E uip chni ue , by Vernon R. Sc mitt.

(Flight, *C ONTROL SYSTEMS, Servo ystems. I D TIFI R : Redundant circuits. Normally t e components of the servo actuating subsystems of dual flight-control system are connected in series similar o a ch in. If one component or li k in each chain fails, the system fails. An in-the-house study was made to determine a method of automatically switching nd cross-fe ding the control functions i t servo actuating subsystems of u l flightcontrol system so that the system would continue o operate s long as one unlik compon of ach channel was operati g. T HEREFORE AS CO PONE F ILUR S OCCUR, THE MET OD DESCRIB IN THIS REPORT WOULD, BY USING THE OPERABLE COMPONENTS REG RDL OF TH CHANNEL HEY AR I , PERMIT AN INCRE SE IN THE OVER-ALL RELI BILITY OF THE SYSTEM.
