The disclosed embodiments relate to methods and systems for avoiding a collision between an aircraft on the ground and an obstacle using a three-dimensional visual indication of the area or plane of winglets on the wingtips of the aircraft. The method includes receiving a video image from a camera positioned in one of the winglets, the video image representing a field of view through which the winglet of the aircraft will pass along a present heading of the aircraft. Next a processor determines a three-dimensional area or plane within the field of view through which the winglet of the aircraft will pass. An overlay is displayed within the field of view to assist the pilot in avoiding collisions with obstacles within the field of view.


Aircraft instrumentation systems and controllers are provided. An aircraft instrumentation system includes a display and a controller. The controller is configured to monitor an electronic circuit breaker (ECB) status of each of a plurality of aircraft systems. The controller is further configured to generate, for each of the plurality of aircraft systems, a visual indicator that indicates the ECB status. The controller is yet further configured to generate an image arrangement that includes the visual indicator for each of the plurality of aircraft systems and to generate a signal that causes a display to present the image arrangement.

Air stair support systems, stair support cable assemblies, and hooks are disclosed herein. A stair support system includes, but is not limited to, an aircraft fuselage, a door seal, a stair door, and a stair support cable assembly. The aircraft fuselage defines a door frame and a stair hook receptacle. The stair door has a retracted position within the door frame and an extended position that forms an entry/exit stairway. The stair support cable assembly includes a cable and two hooks. The first hook includes a curved end portion configured to hook onto the stair hook receptacle, a cable end portion secured to the cable, and an intermediate portion having first and second intermediate legs that extend the intermediate portion away from the door seal when installed on the door frame and the stair door. The second hook is configured to hook on the stair door.

The disclosed embodiments relate to an aircraft having an interior cabin door with a retractable header. Accordingly to non-limiting embodiments, an interior cabin door for an aircraft includes a door panel having an opening in a top portion thereof. A retractable header configured to retract into the opening in the door panel as the door panel moves toward an open position. As the door panel moves toward a closed position, a lifting system is configured to raise the retractable header to interface with the ceiling of the aircraft. The lifting system includes a four-bar mechanism, a cable and pulley system and a biasing member configured to upwardly bias the retractable header.


Methods for manufacturing a reinforced composite structure for an aircraft and devices used in such methods are provided. A device includes a base, a first support member fixedly attached to the base, and a second support member fixedly attached to the base and aligned longitudinally with the first support member. The first support member and the second support member are spaced a first distance apart. Two pinching wheels are spaced a second distance apart. The two pinching wheels are positioned proximate to ends of the first support member and the second support member. The second distance is less than the first distance. The two pinching wheels are configured to receive a composite material layout between them and to cause two lengths of the composite material layout to contact each other.

A load assembly for use with an aircraft includes a support sub-assembly and a lifting sub-assembly. The support sub-assembly is configured for removable coupling to a structural member of the aircraft. The structural member has a first interior position and a second interior position. The support sub-assembly extends between the first interior position and the second interior position. The lifting sub-assembly is movably coupled to the support sub-assembly. The lifting sub-assembly is movable along the support sub-assembly between the first interior position and the second interior position and configured to lift or lower a load, and to support the load as the lifting sub-assembly moves along the support sub-assembly between the first interior position and the second interior position.

An enhanced vision system is provided for an aircraft performing a landing maneuver. Accordingly to non-limiting embodiments, a processor onboard the aircraft receives data from sensors or systems onboard the aircraft and determines a position of the aircraft relative to a runway using the data. Responsive to this determination, the processor adjusts the gain of a first vision system and a second vision system. Images from the first vision system and the second vision system are merged and displayed to the pilot until the completion of the landing maneuver.


A system for controlling a pressure field around an aircraft in flight is disclosed herein. In a non-limiting embodiment, the system includes, but is not limited to, a plurality of pressure sensors that are arranged on the aircraft to measure the pressure field. The system further includes, but is not limited to, a controller that is communicatively coupled with the plurality of pressure sensors. The controller is configured to receive information that is indicative of the pressure field from the plurality of pressure sensors. The controller is also configured to determine when the pressure field deviates from a desired pressure field based on the information. The controller is also configured to transmit an instruction to a movable component onboard the aircraft that will cause the movable component to move in a manner that reduces the deviation.

Thermal-acoustic section (436) for an aircraft (10) for reducing noise along an acoustic path (22) produced from an acoustic source (16) is provided herein. The thermal-acoustic section (436) comprises a plurality of juxtaposed porous layers (400) forming a thermal-acoustic stack (447) that has a first outermost portion (474), a second outermost portion (476) and a central portion (478). The thermal-acoustic stack has a gradually deecreasing characteristic acoustic impedance from the first outermost portion to the central portion and a gradually increasing characteristic acoustic impedance from the central portion to the second outermost portion, to promote transmission loss of the transmitted portion of the noise through the thermal-acoustic stack.


An integrated power distribution, data network, and control architecture for a vehicle is provided that includes nodes distributed throughout the vehicle. Each node includes power distribution (PD) and data collection and distribution (DCD) components. The PD components receive electrical power from a source external to the node and distribute and control the electrical power supplied to active and passive electrical loads that are external to the node. The PD components include an electrical power input interface configured to receive an electrical power input from a source external to the node, and one or more power control modules. Each power control module can control the electrical power supplied to one or more electrical power output interfaces that supply power to the active and passive electrical loads. The DCD components receive data from data sources external to the node and transmit data to data consumers external to the node.
