Digital Code Error Detection And Alerting System

View page
US Patent:
4312071, Jan 19, 1982
Filed:
Dec 3, 1979
Appl. No.:
6/099903
Inventors:
Ramon Bloch - Yonkers NY
Assignee:
Safe Flight Instrument Corporation - White Plains NY
International Classification:
G06F 1112
US Classification:
371 57
Abstract:
A digitally coded output is provided from a sensor, such as an aircraft angle of attack sensor. Groups of unused words from the complete unit distance table are omitted between groups of words that are selected to be used in the code, these unused words being "illegal" words indicating an error if they appear in the output of the sensor. The digitally encoded output of the sensor is, in the preferred embodiment, in unit distance code, and is fed to a programmed ROM where it is converted to binary or other convenient code, this binary encoded information representing the sensor output being employed to convey the information provided thereby. The output of the sensor is also fed to a second programmed ROM which has information stored therein indicative of which of the code words are "illegal". Whenever an illegal word is fed to this second programmed ROM, it generates a digital output indicating an error. This output is used to drive an alerting device to provide a warning to the operator that there is an error in the system's output.

System For Providing An Indication Of Wind Shear

US Patent:
4012713, Mar 15, 1977
Filed:
Nov 5, 1975
Appl. No.:
5/629031
Inventors:
Leonard M. Greene - Chappaqua NY
Ramon Bloch - Yonkers NY
Assignee:
Safe Flight Instrument Corporation - White Plains NY
International Classification:
G01C 500
US Classification:
340 27R
Abstract:
The output of a transducer providing a signal in accordance with the instantaneous air speed of an aircraft is differentiated and fed to a summing device which subtracts therefrom a signal in accordance with the horizontal acceleration of the aircraft, this signal being derived from the output of an inertial instrument such as an accelerometer. The output of the summing device represents the magnitude of the wind shear condition (rate of change of wind velocity with changes in altitude). This signal is fed to appropriate indicator means which may comprise an appropriate display, a peak magnitude storage device, a warning device indicating a dangerous wind shear condition, or a telemetering device providing a wind shear reading to a ground station for use in advising other aircraft.
