Resetting counters is just for RIO to track the number of countermeasures left. The most important action is to reset the programmer - hold the reset switch in RESET for at least 5 seconds. From the...

Hey Bestandskraft,

It often happens that the NAVAIRs are imprecise, and this seems to be the case here too. Indeed, the TACAN transmitter/receiver on the F-14 didn't have a dedicated...

VC is the magnetic variation calculated inside INS/AWG-9 - the program takes the magnetic North from the AHRS and the true North from the IMU/INS, compares the two, and the difference is the VC....

Yes, POINT can be initiated only in WHOT, and it is not a bug. However, once POINT is engaged properly, you should be able to switch to BHOT, and again, it's not a bug :) .

Hey Ramsay!

Actually, you weren't precisely on the radial 117° (297°) but probably around 118-119. The deflection needle isn't accurately aligned, and the direction to the TACAN station (that...

Also, check if there's only one carrier using ICLS - if there is more, the signal from them may interfere and result in unstable ICLS signal or even make tuning the ICLS impossible.

First of all, the AHRS can't be considered as a reliable and precise enough source of magnetic heading, not mentioning true heading which for which the performance is even worse. That's why the "MV"...

Hey!

LANTIRN has its own INS, and it uses GPS data to align/correct the INS.
Also, it can read waypoint coordinates from AWG-9.

However, I think that the way you use VIS FIX may be wrong. With...

Pulling G is not required to accumulate error. If the INS is misaligned, it'll accumulate error even when staying still on ground.

The INS has only a limited ability to detect alignment errors. More often it would be just true heading being wrong, and you can only verify it by checking the true heading through CAP+TID (or mag...

Just FYI, the bearing accuracy of digital readout of the AN/ARN-84(V) - the TACAN - is between 0.5° (for signals stronger than -82 dBm) and 2.0° (below -90 dBm). And we model that in our TACAN...
