TAILORING AIRCRAFT INSTRUMENTATION

E&MP 103.013

Radar - Doppler Effect

ca. 1959

LIGHTWEIGHT DOPPLER NAVIGATION SYSTEMS

This is one type of instrumentation which may be used with the HIDAN method.

Because of the equipment's flexibility it is possible to tailor the arrangement of indicators to the needs of the aircraft's operator.

In this instance the clock at the left tells the pilot what time he will arrive at the next check point on his course or at his destination.

The dial at the upper right indicates drift angle. Distance to go and distance off course are shown by the numerical indicators at the right.
