While the landing brake is strong, it does have limits and not all landing brakes are the same.Just thinking about this issue causes me to consider solutions. Yeah, I do that. I'm also a software architect / engineer. Makes for interesting thoughts.
For the electric speed brake actuator, perhaps some "intelligence" is called for. Now, I'm not much good with electronics, so I can have the idea, but would be lousy for implementing solutions. How about disabling the "down" direction above some selected speed, say the 95 KIAS Terry mentioned? You'd not want to disable the "up" direction, for obvious reasons.
Doable? Well, that smart phone everyone is carrying around has way more compute capability than most realize. Just wondering if we use smart phones why we don't also use smart airplanes?
Of course one would want to avoid any 737 MAX syndromes ....
