Military Avionics Systems by Allan Seabridge, Ian Moir.
This book introduces the military roles expected of aircraft types and describes the avionics systems required to fulfill 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. A complementary volume to the authors’ previous title Civil Avionics Systems, this book covers a wide range of military aircraft roles and systems applications. It offers clear and concise system descriptions; includes case studies and examples from real life, current projects; and features numerous illustrations and photographs. It is a valuable resource for students of aerospace engineering as well as practitioners in the field of aerospace who wish to extend their knowledge.
Allan Seabridge BA, MPhil is Chief Flight Systems Engineer at BAE SYSTEMS. With over 30 years’ experience in the aerospace industry, his work has included avionics on a wide range of aircraft. Allan divides his time between Europe and the USA. This experience gives him an insight into world-wide developments in all aspects of system engineering capability. He is also keen to encourage a fuller understanding of integrated engineering systems.
Ian Moir BSc, CEng, FRAeS, FIEE has over 40 years’ experience in the aerospace industry. He served 20 years in the Royal Air Force as an Engineering Cadet/Officer, retiring with the rank of Squadron Leader. He then went on to work for 18 years at Smiths Industries, Cheltenham, UK. He is now very much in demand as a highly respected international aerospace consultant, operating in the areas of aircraft electrical and utilities systems and avionics.
