The CH-J3 Fly-By-Wire Avionics Hub is a standalone SAS module. Visibly designed for the nosecone of aircraft, it functions equally well in the vacuum of space.

Usage

Simply attach the CH-J3 and it adds automated stability capabilities to craft otherwise lacking SAS functions. This may be useful if the craft is crewed only with kerbonauts lacking the “Pilot” specialization.

Product description

Have you ever wanted to impress your peers by showing off your elite flying skills, but lacked the skills to become a trained pilot? C7 Aerospace's Fly-By-Wire Avionics Hub is the solution! This module allows even the most minimally trained crew to fly like an Ace! WARNING: This module cannot operate autonomously. Warranty void if attempting to do so. WARNING: Module contains no internal gyroscopes or control systems (control actuators sold separately). WARNING: Warranty void without proper use of C7 Aerospace Brand Sickness Bags (sold separately, currently out of stock).

1.0

In its previous incarnation as a science sensor the description was:

The latest in research and developement enabled the development of this little marvel, The Sensor Array Computing Nose Cone. It is outfitted with many "quality" sensors and a computer salvaged from the highest quality aircraft scrap, enabling it to collect atmospheric data while in flight.

0.22

In its even older incarnation as an SAS module, it was called the avionics package, and the description was:

The avionics package! It is outfitted with many "quality" sensors and a computer salvaged from the highest quality aircraft scrap.

0.15

Trivia

Originally the CH-J3 was called the Avionics package. and served as a toggleable module that provided SAS functionality. This kept planes from spinning out of control.

In version 0.22, the workings of SAS (and “ASAS”) were changed and came to be built into each command modules. This made standalone SAS modules superfluous, and the part was repurposed as as a sensor for gathering science, and renamed The Sensor Array Computing Nose Cone.

In version 1.0, the Atmospheric Fluid Spectro-Variometer was added to handle atmosphere analysis, and the addition of kerbonaut specializations made not every kerbal semi-capable of piloting. So it was restored to its original role as a SAS module and renamed.
