G8.2. The SUB system for indicating the Magnocraft's mode of operation

Because of safety concerns, the actual mode in which the propulsors of the Magnocraft work, must be made known not only to the crew of a given vehicle, but also to all people on the ground and to crews of other vehicles which are in the vicinity. This is very important for avoiding accidents, for space traffic control, and for coupling/decoupling activities. Therefore, to indicate the actual mode of propulsion operation, a special system of indication lamps must be installed in the Magnocraft. This system represents an advanced version of the positional (navigation) lights used in modern aeroplanes. It is called here the "SUB system" from the first letters of its Polish name, "system Sygnalizacji Uk»adami Barwnymi" (i.e. system of signalling through colour patterns). This subsection explains its components, operation, and main functions.
Components of the SUB system are shown in Figure G30. It consists of four, or a multiple of four, large signalling lamps (lights) installed around the vehicle's perimeter, usually on the outer tip of its flange, while for the Magnocraft of large types – additionally also on the upper (external) peripheral of the crew cabin. Furthermore, it includes also further four small lamps installed on the pilot's control panel in the crew cabin. The large lamps from the vehicle's flange are positioned with equal spacing between themselves. They are marked with the letters U, V, W and X. The four small lights on the pilot's control panel are positioned in a row and marked with the letters ui, vi, wi, and xi. These lights on the control panel are duplicates of the lights on the flange and are installed for the pilot's use; i.e. they light up in an identical manner to the lights from the flange that are marked with a corresponding letter. Each lamp of the SUB system emits the colour of light which corresponds to the variation in the magnetic field of the group of side propulsors marked with the same letter (compare Figures G30 and G26). Therefore the colour pattern created by the lights is dependent on the field pulsation in the corresponding side propulsors. The light emitted by the SUB system uses three main colours, whose precise shades are closely controlled - see Table G3. These shades within the light's main colour may vary depending on the pole of the magnetic field and the intensity (amplitude) of the field's pulsation. On the other hand, the main colours of the lamps' glow depend on the actual state of the output's amplitude from this group of propulsors which are signalled by a given set of lamps. For example, if the value of a pulsating output in, let’s say "V" propulsors, reaches the maximum of its amplitude, all the "V" lamps emit red light (compare the curve from Figure G26 with the content of Table G3). When the value of the field in the "V" propulsors reaches the middle of its amplitude, then all the "V" lights change colour to bright yellow (compare the diagram in Figure G26 with Table G3). When the value of the field in the "V" propulsors reaches its minimum, the "V" lamps emit a blue colour. In a similar manner colours also change in the lamps that reflect the output from the "U", "W" and "X" groups of propulsors.
The above explanation illustrates that the changing of colour patterns in each light is a visual indication of the field variation of the particular group of propulsors. Thus the SUB lights give complete information about the state of the vehicle's magnetic field. They indicate the mode of operation of the propulsors (by showing: the rotation of colours for the magnetic whirl mode, the stationary on/off flashing for the throbbing mode, or the continuous one colour glow for the magnetic lens mode of the propulsors' operation), the direction of whirl rotation (by the direction in which given colours apparently move), the orientation of the magnetic poles (which colour is dominant), the amplitude of pulsation (by differentiation between the depths of the colours at extreme points of pulses), and the level of the constant component in the propulsors' output (by a mean shade of main colours). So in this way the lights of the SUB system warn the crews of other vehicles and people on the ground about the field configuration and parameters that prevail around a given Magnocraft. Of course, it is vital that ordinary people also learn to recognize these warnings (see also the incidents quoted in subsection P2.13.2). This ability becomes very useful in the light of the formal proof from subsection P2 that "UFOs are already constructed Magnocraft ".
