CPU-66/A SUBSONIC ALTITUDE COM-
PUTER. --The CPU-66/A altitude computer
at speeds up to 0.95 Mach. Its operation is similar
to that of the CPU-46/A.
The ADCs have been modified to have the
same altitude output capabilities as the CPU-46/A
or the CPU-66/A. The modification depends on
the speed and altitude capabilities of the aircraft
in which the unit is installed.
The three altimeters that work with the
automatic altitude reporting system are the
AAU-19/A, AAU-21/A, and AAU-24/A (fig.
