 - June 11, 2008, 7:12 AM

Aircraft Braking Systems Corp. (ABSC) was recently awarded contracts for main wheels, carbon brakes and nosewheels for the Dasault Falcon 900EX and Gulfstream IV. The Akron, Ohio-based ABSC already produces braking systems for Falcon 10, 20, and 50 aircraft, and will introduce a brake-by-wire (BBW) digital braking system for the Falcon 900 similar to other ABSC BBW systems installed on six aircraft models. The brake control system to be used on the Gulfstream IV will be a digital anti-skid system that incorporates hydromechanical components of ABSC’s current Gulfstream IV-SP antiskid system.
