Abstract
(EN)
A portable three-dimensional position and velocity data archiving system for use with an aircraft during flight testing and evaluations. The system includes a ground based system and an airborne system. Each system includes a GPS receiver (22) electrically connected with a GPS antenna (24) for receiving and interpreting GPS signals transmitted from a GPS satellite constellation. Each system also includes a radio communication device (32, 34) for transferring position and velocity data as well as error correction data and guidance cues between the ground and airborne systems. The portable system acquires, processes, archives, and provides precise three-dimensional position and velocity data for the aircraft in real time. Information regarding aircraft position, direction, velocity, acceleration and any correction needs referenced to a selected coordinate system is immediately presented to a vehicle piloting crew on analog as well as digital indicators.

Cette invention concerne un système portable d'archivage des données de vitesse et de positionnement tridimensionnel conçu pour les essais et évaluations en vol d'un aéronef. Ledit système comporte un système au sol et un système aéroporté. Chacun de ces systèmes comporte un récepteur GPS électriquement relié à une antenne GPS pour recevoir et interpréter des signaux GPS émis à partir d'une constellation de satellites. Chacun de ces systèmes comporte aussi un dispositif de communication radioélectrique conçu pour véhiculer les données de vitesse et de position ainsi que les données de correction des erreurs et les signaux de guidage entre les systèmes au sol et aéroporté. Ledit système portable acquiert, traite, archive et délivre à l'aéronef, en temps réel, des données précises relatives à sa vitesse et à sa position tridimensionnelle. Les informations relatives à la position de l'aéronef, à sa direction, à sa vitesse, à son accélération et à tous éléments nécessaires de correction, données par référence à un système de coordonnées sélectionné, sont présentées immédiatement à l'équipe de pilotage de l'aéronef sur des indicateurs analogiques ou numériques.
