The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATBS), which issued its final report Monday, found that while the aircraft was cruising at 37,000 ft., one of its three air data inertial reference units (ADIRUs) started outputting intermittent, incorrect dataNor spikesNon airspeed, altitude, air pressure, temperature and the flying angle to the primary flight computers controlling the flight.
However, by modifying their flying angles and other maneuvers, the vehicles will be able to fly at the much lower speeds needed for many scientific missions.
