Book : Aircraft Systems: Mechanical, Electrical and Avionics Subsystems Integration, 3rd Edition (2008)

Aircraft Systems: Mechanical, Electrical and Avionics Subsystems Integration, 3rd Edition

Publisher:John Wiley & Sons

Author(s): Moir, Ian • Seabridge, Allan

Published: 2008 ISBN: 0470059966 • 546 pages Delivery Format: Hard Copy - Hardback

Summary

From the publisher:

This third edition of Aircraft Systems represents a timely update of the Aerospace Series’ successful and widely acclaimed flagship title. Moir and Seabridge present an in-depth study of the general systems of an aircraft – electronics, hydraulics, pneumatics, emergency systems and flight control to name but a few - that transform an aircraft shell into a living, functioning and communicating flying machine. Advances in systems technology continue to alloy systems and avionics, with aircraft support and flight systems increasingly controlled and monitored by electronics; the authors handle the complexities of these overlaps and interactions in a straightforward and accessible manner that also enhances synergy with the book’s two sister volumes, Civil Avionics Systems and Military Avionics Systems.

Aircraft Systems, 3rd Edition is thoroughly revised and expanded from the last edition in 2001, reflecting the significant technological and procedural changes that have occurred in the interim – new aircraft types, increased electronic implementation, developing   markets, increased environmental pressures and the emergence of UAVs. Every chapter is updated, and the latest technologies depicted. It offers an essential reference tool for aerospace industry researchers and practitioners such as aircraft designers, fuel specialists, engine specialists, and ground crew maintenance providers, as well as a textbook for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in systems engineering, aerospace and engineering avionics.

Summary

From The Publisher

Since the publication of the second edition of 'Introduction to Radar Systems', there has been continual development of new radar capabilities and continual improvements to the technology and practice of radar.

This growth has necessitated the addition and updating of the following topics for the third edition:

  • digital technology,
  • automatic detection and tracking,
  • doppler technology,airborne radar,
  • and target recognition.

The topic coverage is one of the great strengths of the text. In addition to a thorough revision of topics,and deletion of obsolete material,the author has added end-of-chapter problems to enhance the "teachability" of this classic book in the classroom,as well as for self-study for practicing engineers.
