  • Publication number: 20190323856
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for generating a runway landing alert for an aircraft. The method comprises establishing a Runway Awareness Advisory System (RAAS) envelope for the designated target runway of the aircraft. A track of the aircraft is monitored with reference to a centerline of the target runway. Any deviation by the aircraft from the centerline of the target runway is detected and determined if it is within a margin of error. If the deviation is within the margin of error, an altitude parameter of the RAAS envelope is increased. If the aircraft is determined to still be maneuvering with respect to the centerline of the target runway, the altitude parameter of the RAAS envelope is decreased. Otherwise, an alert is generated if the aircraft is outside of the RAAS envelope.

  • Patent number: 6507289
    Abstract: In a ground proximity warning system for an aircraft, a signal representing clearance of the aircraft from the underlying terrain is produced from a sea level related altitude signal and a terrain database in addition to the radio altitude signal of the aircraft's radio altimeter. An indication of reasonableness of the aircraft radio altitude signal is formed jointly responsive to the aircraft radio altitude signal and the terrain clearance signal.

  • Publication number: 20020120632
    Abstract: A terrain server provides access to a central database of terrain elevation and other geographical, political, and industrial feature data (terrain data). Systems requiring terrain data, called clients, send requests for such data to the terrain server when such data is needed. The terrain server retrieves, processes, and transmits the terrain data as specified by received requests. Processing necessary to access and format the data as required by the client is performed by the terrain server in accordance with parameters specified in the requests. Specialized formatting, merging of data from different databases, and the combining of dynamic data from other systems is alternatively performed by the terrain server.

  • Patent number: 4584855
    Abstract: A pick-proof u-bolt type lock is disclosed with an untypical location for containing its cylinder lock. A tube, comprising a housing, has openings near its ends that accept the ends of a shackle which are secured within that housing. A cylinder lock is located between the shackle openings and an access port is provided to it for insertion and withdrawal of the key. A matching port on a collar that rotates around the housing is positioned to shut off that access, or to allow it selectively.Cooperating parts attached to, and effecting the operation of the lock, work to make the lock inoperable while access to the keyhole is available; and allow normal function of the lock when rotation of the collar prevents access. The key is not turned by finger grip, but instead, affecting the closure, turns the key and plug operating the cylinder lock and releasing the shackle at one end. The remaining end is freed as it swings clear of a securing pin in the other end of the housing.
