Air Data Computers
The family of Astronautics digital Air Data Computers (ADCs) consists of civil and military variants designed to meet requirements for transport and fighter/trainer high performance aircraft including the F-16, F-4, F-5, T-38, C-130, L-159, Kfir, and MiG. The MADC-110 civil ADC model features Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum (RVSM) performance and ARINC-429 interfaces, the MADC-108 military ADC model is based on MIL-STD-1553 interface. These ADCs are fully digital and use solid state pressure transducer devices resulting in outstanding performance. Inputs are static and several inputs (total pressure from the Pitot Tube, Angle of Attack sensor readings, Altimeter Barometric setting, Outside Air Temperature and several discretes such as “Weight-on-Wheels” Aircraft configuration and BIT initiate) are used to calculate the required outputs, based on source error correction values.
