Sample text

The AP-1 01/102 series of computers has been used in everything from the B-52 and B-1, to the Space Shuttle. The adaptation of a Mil-Std-1750A-compliant computer (and its associated data busses) allowed the integration of new Air Force "smart" precision-guided weapons without a lengthy development cycle. The first offensive weapon to take advantage of this on the F-117A was the GBU-27 Paveway '" laserguided bomb. The Paveway III system was a tremendous improvement over the earlier laser-guided bombs.

The second phase of the OCIP upgrade addressed some concerns pilots had expressed about the cockpit equipment. As delivered from Lockheed, the F-117 A had used Texas Instruments monochrome displays for most flight instrumentation, and a monochrome CRT to display the FLiR imagery. The TI displays were Originally, only one of the two replaced with new Honeywell color weapons doors could be opened at multi-function displays (from late once. OCIP I added new composite model F/A-18s) that could display doors that removed this restriction, flight instrumentation and FLiR and both weapons bays may now data.
