The gas turbine engine is a widely used engine type for aircraft, utilizing the combustion of fuel and air mixtures to produce the propulsive force needed for achieving flight. As the ignition of fuel and air mixtures results in a stream of hot, expanding exhaust gases, there needs to be a system in place to rid the engine of this byproduct after it is used to drive assemblies. With the exhaust section of the gas turbine engine, spent gases are expelled rearward at a high velocity to achieve more thrust as well as to mitigate turbulence.

The flight control systems of most aircraft comprise a series of rods and bellcranks that connect the flight control surfaces, such as the aileron, rudder, or elevator, to a series of cables that run through the wings and fuselage to the yoke or stick. When motion is applied by the pilot to the stick or yoke, these cables transmit the motion to the control surface. Similar to the way an automobile needs regular alignments and adjustments to help it steer properly and track straight, the aircraft control system must also be regularly adjusted to ensure the aircraft flies straight and level.

On September 18, 2014, General Dynamic’s Information Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, was awarded a contract by the United States Navy. Valued at $16.2 Million, the contract calls for General Dynamics to manufacture and product Type-3 Advanced Mission Computers (AMC) specifically designed for the Super Hornet aircraft F/A-18E/A-18G. This carrier-based multirole fighter is used for air-to-air and air-to-surface combat.Due to the aircrafts high intensity use, the Type-3 Advanced Mission Computers will be designed to withstand extreme conditions while maintaining accuracy and productivity. Updated features include extreme environment protection, high-performance processing, and the ability to handle high-speed data rates from multiple aircraft sensors. General purpose, input/output, video, voice and graphics processing will also be achieved through the AMC’s integrated information processing system. Work of these units will be completed at the General Dynamics facility in Bloomington, Minnesota with an estimated completion date of March 2016.
