In the design of the Vertical Velocity Meter a survey was first conducted of the existing methods used to measure the vertical velocity of an airplane when landing. A study was then made of these methods and of other unsuccessful attempts to design a Vertical Velocity Meter to determine just why they were not satisfactory and in what way they might be improved.
