Larrieu Bertrand: Method of guidance at a low altitude. Sextant Avionique, May 28, 1997: EP0775953-A1 (12 worldwide citation)

The procedure for piloting an aircraft at low altitude allows flight at a tangent to the relief over which the aircraft passes. The pilot of the aircraft determines on a cartographic screen the target points (Bi, Bi+1) past which to fly. This allows calculation of the profile of the terrain, with th ...

Henri Huillet: AC-DC chopper converter type of supply. Sextant Avionique, Oblon Spivak McClelland Maier & Neustadt, December 10, 1991: US05072355 (12 worldwide citation)

Disclosed is a supply of the AC-DC converter type where the regulation is achieved by successive operations for charging and discharging a capacitor. The supply includes an input oscillator circuit, the period of which is very small as compared with that of the input AC voltage. A first switch is cl ...

Engin Oder, Francine Pierre, Jean Marie Renouard: Pilot assistance procedure using database system for supplying reference handbook data to crew in flight. Sextant Avionique, January 28, 1994: FR2694104-A1 (12 worldwide citation)

The procedure uses a processor (2) associated with a terminal (4,5,6) having a touch screen and memories (3) holding information useful for flight. The processor is also connected to the aircraft equipment allowing collection of real time data about the operation of the aircraft.The processor is int ...

Muriel Bomans, Sylvie Grand Perret: Process and device for aiding aerial navigation, facilitating the input and control of flight data. Sextant Avionique, Oblon Spivak McClelland Maier & Neustadt P C, July 25, 2000: US06094608 (12 worldwide citation)

To facilitate the task of a pilot, an on-board computer (FMS) carries out a dialogue with the pilot via a data display and input console (MCDU). This console displays a list of tasks to be executed in the form of a succession of selectable and activatable main zones (40). Each zone corresponds to a ...

Dominique Pastor, GĂ©rard Reynaud: Process for searching for a noise model in noisy audio signals. Sextant Avionique, Oblon Spivak McClelland Maier & Neustadt P C, August 20, 2002: US06438513 (12 worldwide citation)

A process for the denoising of audio signals picked up in a noisy environment, for example in the cockpit of an aircraft or of another vehicle, and more precisely to the searching for a noise model in the audio signals. Input signals are digitized, and these signals are processed on the basis of a n ...

Jean Pierre Cursolle, Jean Michel Francois, Jean Pierre Gerbe, Patrick Lacroux, Denis Plantier: Helmet with night-vision device providing optimized safety and ergonomy. Sextant Avionique, Oblon Spivak McClelland Maier & Neustadt P C, October 13, 1998: US05822126 (11 worldwide citation)

The invention relates to a pilot's helmet with a tinted visor that can be locked in raised position during nighttime use by a device using spring-loaded balls, and that can be lowered manually, or automatically when the pilot ejects thanks to a spring-loaded system tending to close the visor.
