    1. Not that I have any idea what back up systems there are, but I wonder what an EMP burst would do to all that?


      • I would hope that a system like this would either fail over gracefully to it’s regular systems or be hardened against EMP bursts.


      • Nothing, if it’s a military bird (which I’m fairly certain it is not). MOST civilian aircraft nav systems are EMP shielded to some degree, either through fiber optic feeds or through Faraday cage buffer systems.

        In any event, what happens to the AV/NAv systems of any plane really depends on the strength pf the EMP pulse and the type of aircraft.

        What you want to know is would an EMP pulse cause a plane to fall from the sky like an anvil? That’s pretty much a plot device of bad science fiction.

    2. Nothing, it’s analog. Runs on nuclear power.


    3. I feel safe betting this is the interior view from inside of one of our old shuttles. I base that scientific guess on the shape of the windows, their location on the fuselage, the complexity of the navigation equipment, and the shape of the nose.

      I could be wrong but, I’d make a substantial cash wager that I’m not.
