Abstract : Ship's attitude parameters, including pitch, roll and heading, provided in the form of synchro signals by redundant sensors, are distributed to various shipboard systems by a synchro selector binary switching tree under the control of a digital processor. The processor also generates dynamic simulations of pitch, roll and heading, which can be distributed to the shipboard systems by the switching tree.
