(41CV) Helicopter H-46D NATOPS
An extract from Development of NATOPS Performance Software fior the H-46D Helicopter, John M. Caram (LT USN), Master's Thesis, Naval Postgraduate School, MAR 1985, 73 pgs.

"ABSTRACT
This thesis generates closed-form equations for significant and frequently used NATOPS performance charts for the H-46D and H-46A (with T58-GE-1O engines) helicopters. These equations are developed into interactive software for the Hewlett-Packard HP-41CV hand-held programmable calculator. With this software installed in the calculator the user is able to calculate numerous NATOPS performance parameters (expeditiously, with reduced risk of error) both prior to and in flight.

APPENDIX A: NATOPS PERFORMANCE SOFTWARE USER'S GUIDE

APPENDIX B: REGRESSION EQUATIONS AND SOFTWARE

The purpose of this thesis is to propose a correction to … NATOPS deficiencies by transforming selected performance charts into interactive, user-friendly, computer software for a hand-held programmable calculator. This solution would enable aircrew to obtain performance data with increased accuracy, reduced time and effort, and permit in-flight use."

BEST!
