THE ROLE OF COMMUNICATIONS IN THE NAVIGATION AND CONTROL LOOP

Frank B. Brady

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: DURING THE development of transport aviation, each generation of aircraft has created new communications problems. The progressively higher speeds, the higher altitudes used, the greater operating range, and heavier traffic density have been major contributing factors to these problems. Almost invariably, an adjustment period has been required after the introduction of new-type aircraft for communication facilities and procedures to catch up with the requirements. A brief review of some of these more significant changes which have taken place may give us a basis for projecting our thinking into the future role of communications as it relates to navigation and control of the supersonic transport.
