The sorbent tape is dust-free and can be easily incorporated into existing design specifications to safeguard on-board automotive and marine electronics, navigational computers
, optical electronics, and portable handheld devices, as well as larger laptop and LCD displays.
Along with flight crew and engineers, the pilot tested the Concorde's steering, braking and navigational computers
Accompanied by flight crew and engineers, Capt Bannister tested steering, braking and navigational computers
The company's "Skunk Works" team - a forward-directed, think-tank of pilots Kim Kaiser, Steve Fulton, Bill Ziska, Kim Ratle, Mike Adams and Dean Schwab - helped the airline develop a way in which the GPS system could send information to two navigational computers
that could in turn help the pilot determine the plane's exact location.
The digital data is used automatically by the fire control and navigational computers
, avoiding the confusion caused by jammed or misunderstood voice communication.
The hour-long trial tested systems such as steering, braking and navigational computers
as well as tyres as the aircraft made a full circuit of Heathrow.
