The pilot's and copilot's symbol generators are
the focal point of information flow in the systems. The
symbol generator converts information to video and
deflection formats required by the EADI and EHSI
displays, and provides analog steering information to the
flight director/autopilot interfaces.
When engaged and coupled to the flight director
commands, the digital integrated flight control system
will control the aircraft using the same commands
displayed on the EADI. When engaged and not coupled
to the flight director commands, manual pitch and roll
commands may be inserted using the touch control
steering (TCS) switch on the pilot's or copilot's
respective control wheel or the autopilot pitch wheel and
turn knob located on the pedestal extension.
3-16. ATTITUDE AND HEADING REFERENCE
The attitude and heading reference system
consists of the vertical gyros (VG-14A), directional gyros
(C-14A), dual remote compensator (CS-412), flux valves
(FX-220), and the inertial navigation system (INS).
The vertical gyros provide the digital flight
control system, electronic flight instrument system, and
weather radar antenna with pitch and roll information.
The inertial navigation system, when selected
for display on the EFIS, also provides inputs to the flight
The directional gyros, with the flux valve and
referenced heading information for use by the digital
flight control computer, electronic flight instrument
system, INS, and mission equipment.
3-17. AIR DATA SYSTEM (ADZ-800).
The air data system consists of the digital air
data computer (AZ-800), pilot's barometric altimeter (BA-
141), and the altitude preselector (AL-801).
microprocesser-based digital computer which accepts
computations, and supplies both digital and analog
outputs. It receives both pitot and static pressure for
computing standard air data functions. Altitude preselect
data is input from the altitude preselector. Information
from the digital air data computer is sent to the pilot's
director/autopilot, INS, and GPS.
3-18. ELECTRONIC FLIGHT INSTRUMENT SYSTEM
instrument system consists of the pilot's and copilot's
director indicators (EADI) and electronic horizontal
situation indicators (EHSI) display units (ED-800),
symbol generators (SG-805), display controllers (DC-
811), and instrument remote controllers (RI-106S).
The EFIS electronic displays present pitch and
roll attitude, heading, course orientation, flight path
commands, radio altitude, weather radar and lightning
sensor system presentations, and mode and source

For this test to be valid, the AUTO
PLT POWER switch must be on and
the radio altimeter must be on.

Preflight test of the composite mode will cause
the same results as the above test, except the digital
