Abstract : An advanced system for aircraft flight control and data presentation is described in this report. This system is proposed as the fixed wing attack research system of the Army-Navy Instrumentation Program. It is believed that the proposed system should be configured initially as a laboratory simulator in such a manner that its essential parts can be used directly in subsequent flyable applications. The system reflects the maximum integration considered to be consistent with the economic and technical states predicted for implementation in 1964-65. Therefore it will incorporate a central control computer and feature a cockpit configuration.
