Aircraft Systems Book Review:

This third edition of Aircraft Systems represents a timely update of the Aerospace Series’ successful and widely acclaimed flagship title. Moir and Seabridge present an in-depth study of the general systems of an aircraft – electronics, hydraulics, pneumatics, emergency systems and flight control to name but a few - that transform an aircraft shell into a living, functioning and communicating flying machine. Advances in systems technology continue to alloy systems and avionics, with aircraft support and flight systems increasingly controlled and monitored by electronics; the authors handle the complexities of these overlaps and interactions in a straightforward and accessible manner that also enhances synergy with the book’s two sister volumes, Civil Avionics Systems and Military Avionics Systems. Aircraft Systems, 3rd Edition is thoroughly revised and expanded from the last edition in 2001, reflecting the significant technological and procedural changes that have occurred in the interim – new aircraft types, increased electronic implementation, developing markets, increased environmental pressures and the emergence of UAVs. Every chapter is updated, and the latest technologies depicted. It offers an essential reference tool for aerospace industry researchers and practitioners such as aircraft designers, fuel specialists, engine specialists, and ground crew maintenance providers, as well as a textbook for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in systems engineering, aerospace and engineering avionics.

Military Avionics Systems Book Review:

Ian Moir and Allan Seabridge Military avionics is a complex and technically challenging field which requires a high level of competence from all those involved in the aircraft design and maintenance. As the various systems on board an aircraft evolve to become more and more inter-dependent and integrated, it is becoming increasingly important for designers to have a holistic view and knowledge of aircraft systems in order to produce an effective design for their individual components and effectively combine the systems involved. This book introduces the military roles expected of aircraft types and describes the avionics systems required to fulfil these roles. These range from technology and architectures through to navigations systems, sensors, computing architectures and the human-machine interface. It enables students to put together combinations of systems in order to perform specific military roles. Sister volume to the authors’ previous successful title ‘Civil Avionics Systems’ Covers a wide range of military aircraft roles and systems applications Offers clear and concise system descriptions Includes case studies and examples from current projects Features full colour illustrations detailing aircraft display systems Military Avionics Systems will appeal to practitioners in the aerospace industry across many disciplines such as aerospace engineers, designers, pilots, aircrew, maintenance engineers, ground crew, navigation experts, weapons developers and instrumentation developers. It also provides a valuable reference source to students in the fields of systems and aerospace engineering and avionics.

Aging Avionics in Military Aircraft Book Review:

Extending the life of an airframe has proven challenging and costly. Extending the life of an avionics system, however, is one of the most critical and difficult aspects of extending total aircraft system lifetimes. Critical components go out of production or become obsolete, and many former suppliers of military-grade components have gone out of business. From 1986 to 1996, for example, the percentage of discontinued military/aerospace electronic devices nearly doubled- from 7.5 percent to 13.5 percent. In addition, legacy avionics systems, which were designed to meet requirements of the past, generally lack the full capability to perform new missions, meet new threats, or perform well in the new information-intensive battlefield environments. As the legacy aircraft fleet ages, avionics systems will become more and more difficult to support and maintain. Whereas the military once provided a large and profitable market for the electronics industry, the military electronics market today constitutes less than 1 percent of the commercial market. As a result, the military must increasingly rely on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technologies for its avionics hardware and software. Although COTS items are generally less expensive than comparable items designed especially to meet military specifications, the technology-refresh cycle for COTS is typically 18 months or less, which exacerbates the obsolescence problem for aircraft whose lifetimes are measured in decades. The short refresh cycle is driven mostly by the tremendous advances in computer systems, which comprise an increasing percentage of avionics content. In response to a request by the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, the National Research Council convened the Committee on Aging Avionics in Military Aircraft, under the auspices of the Air Force Science and Technology Board, to conduct this study. This report summarizes the following: - Gather information from DoD, other government agencies, and industrial sources on the status of, and issues surrounding, the aging avionics problem. This should include briefings from and discussions with senior industry executives and military acquisition and support personnel. A part of this activity should include a review of Air Force Materiel Command's study on diminishing manufacturing sources to recommend ways to mitigate avionics obsolescence. - Provide recommendations for new approaches and innovative techniques to improve management of aging avionics, with the goal of helping the Air Force to enhance supportability and replacement of aging and obsolescing avionics and minimize associated life cycle costs. Comment on the division of technology responsibility between DoD and industry.

Systems Maintainability Book Review:

Maintainability is of crucial importance throughout industry and is established as one of the most important issues in the aerospace and defence arena. No new system can be introduced without full maintainability, analysis and demonstration; a type of analysis which reduces life cycle costs by decreasing operational and maintenance costs and increasing systems operational effectiveness, leading in turn to the creation of more competitive products. This book establishes the full methodology for maintainability mathematics and modelling, as well as the relationship between the maintainability and maintenance processes.

Aircraft Systems Integration of Air Launched Weapons Book Review:

From the earliest days of aviation where the pilot would dropsimple bombs by hand, to the highly agile, stealthy aircraft oftoday that can deliver smart ordnance with extreme accuracy,engineers have striven to develop the capability to deliver weaponsagainst targets reliably, safely and with precision. Aircraft Systems Integration of Air-Launched Weaponsintroduces the various aspects of weapons integration, primarilyfrom the aircraft systems integration viewpoint, but also considerskey parts of the weapon and the desired interactions with theaircraft required for successful target engagement. Key features: Addresses the broad range of subjects that relate directly tothe systems integration of air-launched weapons with aircraft, suchas the integration process, system andsubsystem architectures, the essential contribution that open,international standards have on improving interoperability andreducing integration costs and timescales Describes the recent history of how industry and bodies such asNATO have driven the need for greater interoperability betweenweapons and aircraft and worked to reduce the costand timescales associated with the systems integration ofcomplex air-launched weapons with aircraft Explores future initiatives and technologies relating to thereduction of systems integration costs and timescales The systems integration of air-launched weapons with aircraftrequires a multi-disciplinary set of engineeringcapabilities. As a typical weapons integration life-cyclespans several years, new engineers have to learn the skillsrequired by on-the-job training and working with experiencedweapons integrators. Aircraft Systems Integration ofAir-Launched Weapons augments hands-on experience, therebyenabling the development of subject matter expertise more quicklyand in a broader context than would be achieved by working throughthe life-cycle on one specific project. This book also servesas a useful revision source for experienced engineers in thefield.
