The project was titled ARL Flight Memory and in 1954 David wrote the paper : D.R. Warren, ‘A Device for Assisting Investigation into Aircraft Accidents’, Mechanical Engineering Technical Memorandum 142, Aeronautical Research Laboratories, Research & Development Branch, Department of Supply, April 1954.
Today I had the pleasure as part of my research to view the original prototypes and test equipment from David Warren's innovative work.
