"AVIONICS TRAINING" is the first book to respond to new directions in the avionics industry. As electronics spread through every type of aircraft, there is a rising need for technicians who understand "systems," not circuits. Such knowledge is required to identify faulty units aboard the airplane, often during a quick turn time on the ramp. The book explains systems in simple terms, with over 400 full-color photos and drawings. The book assumes no knowledge of electronics, containing neither formulas nor schematics. It describes over 30 systems and how they relate to each other. Confusing acronyms and abbreviations are avoided; they're spelled out on every page. The book deals with two major trends. First, airlines are insisting that mechanics troubleshoot avionics on the flight line. It's becoming too costly for airlines to staff outlying line stations with "radio mechanics." Many carriers already require all maintenance people to obtain an FCC license and cross-training in avionics is growing. The second trend is the disappearing "avionics bench technician." When today's computerized avionics go bad, they're sent back to the factory because shops can't afford large automatic test stations and software to repair them. The demand today is for people skilled in "R&R" (remove and replace)---which requires systems-level knowledge. The scope of "Avionics Training" includes all legacy systems---VOR, ILS and ADF, for example---because they will continue to fly for decades. The book also covers the new generation now entering flight decks; satellite navigation, data communications and electronic flight instruments (EFIS). Weather detection, collision avoidance (TCAS) and Mode S transponders are also covered. Much of the book is devoted to hands-on guidance on how to install instruments, wiring harnesses, radio trays, connectors, antennas and other practical topics related to systems. A final section describes test and troubleshooting techniques. Besides the technician, "Avionics Training" should prove of interest to the engineer and executive wanting a broader knowledge of avionics industry practices. The book has already been adopted by several colleges and other teaching institutions.

"Intriguing . . . [filled with] new ideas about overarching intellectual themes that govern our technologies and our society." —Nikil Jayant, Eminent Scholar, Georgia Research Alliance "Dr. Ahamed is correct in observing that 'silicon and glass have altered the rhythm of mind' and that computers need to be more 'human.'" —Bishnu S. Atal, Member, National Academy of Engineering This book combines philosophical, societal, and artificial intelligence concepts with those of computer science and information technology to demonstrate novel ways in which computers can simplify data mining on the Internet. It describes numerous innovative methods that go well beyond information retrieval to allow computers to accomplish such tasks as processing, classifying, prioritizing, and reconstituting knowledge. The book is divided into five parts: New knowledge sensing and filtering environments Concept building and wisdom machines General structure and theory of knowledge Verb functions and noun objects Humanistic and semi-human systems This book offers new mathematical methodologies and concrete HW/SW/FW configurations for the IT specialist to help their corporations explore, exploit, compete, and win global market share.
