Laval, Ontario-based Amphitech International received a limited STC for its Oasys helicopter obstacle avoidance radar as installed aboard the Bell 212. Oasys can penetrate fog, rain, smoke and haze to alert helo crews of potential dangers such as power lines, towers, buildings, terrain, trees and air traffic. Work on an STC authorizing Oasys installation aboard Eurocopter AS 350s is under way. Amphitech expects to begin shipping operational units early next year.
