A two axis controller for controlling a tanker aircraft in-flight refueling boom while maneuvering prior to engagement with the receiver aircraft and including a boom load alleviation system after engagement. Movement of the control stick is transmitted mechanically to a position transducer. The transducer provides a signal to an actuator to effect boom control. The transducer output is also transmitted to a servo motor which is mechanically connected to the control stick. During the free flight mode, when the operator is manually controlling the boom, t...
An apparatus for controlling a mechanical element in angular or translational position, comprising: a control stick; position transducer means driven by said control stick for generating a command signal that is a function of said control stick position; actuator means responsive to said command signal for driving said mechanical element; servo motor means for receiving said command signal and applying an inverse force to said control stick proportional to said command signal; force transducer means for measuring force on said mechanical element and gene...
