GINA provides vertical velocity, position, heading, digital and
analog attitude (roll and pitch) and time to the DEU for ADI, HSI
and HUD displays, over the MIL-STD-1553B MUX BUS. The
pitot static system provides input to the standby altimeter,
standby airspeed indicator, standby VSI and the DEU. The AOA
system is used to maintain precise airspeed necessary for carrier
and field operations by constantly monitoring the airflow relative
to the fuselage. The AOA system provides inputs to the AOA
indicator, approach lights and the DEU via the ADR for the ADI
and HUD displays.
The independent flight instrument systems include the radar
altimeter display, the standby attitude indicator, standby altimeter,
standby turn and slip indicator, standby compass and the clock/
stopwatch. The standby attitude indicator, the standby compass,
standby altimeter and the standby turn and slip indicator are used
as backups in the event that the main flight instruments/systems/
displays have failed.
The flight instrument system interfaces with the following aircraft
systems: electrical, GINA, pitot static, NAV, ADRS, and IFF.
