The Air Transportation Technology Program at Princeton University, a program emphasizing graduate and undergraduate student research, proceeded along five avenues during 1985: guidance and control strategies for penetration of microbursts and wind shear; application of artificial intelligence in flight control and air traffic control systems; use of voice recognition in the cockpit; effects of control saturation on closed-loop stability and response of open-loop-unstable aircraft; and computer-aided control system design. Areas of investigation relate to guidance and control of commercial transports as well as general-aviation aircraft. Interaction between the flight crew and automatic systems is a subject of principal concern.
