Abstract : This patent describes a skid detector apparatus utilizing a threshold modulator unit to provide an antiskid valve command signal which is inversely proportional to braking pressure to eliminate wheel lockup in accordance with the existing state of a runway. The threshold level modulator utilizes a feedback control signal to vary the threshold level within the skid detector. The skid detector provides a control signal to the valve driver which in turn varies the brake pressure to the braking device. (Author)
