The Military Digital Convergence

Since the Wright Brothers first free-powered flight in 1903, air vehicles have relied upon discrete, analog sensors to supply the information required by their pilots. These sensors and their dashboard-clustered indicators may be regarded as the first and the analog approach to platform situational awareness.
