Esterline Avionics Systems and Esterline Simulation Visual Systems (Stand U88) are showcasing their advanced displays and CMC Electronics brand integrated helicopter solutions, as well as their TReality visualization systems. Their display includes the Singapore debut of Esterline’s helicopter demonstrator, which features an extensive range of the company’s core avionics capabilities, as well as its TReality TD-522 helicopter simulator transportable dome.
The company’s products “are highly flexible, allowing for multiple levels of modernization, from a minor upgrade to a full avionics suite,” said Michel Potvin, president, Esterline Avionics Systems. “Our goal is to optimize situational awareness for our commercial and military customers and ensure their mission success.”
Esterline offers smart multifunction displays (SMFD), flight management systems (FMS), aircraft information servers (AIS), global positioning system (GPS) sensors and doppler velocity sensors (DVS), along with mission computers and a wide range of display products. The helicopter demonstrator incorporates these solutions so operators can see how they work individually and in combination.
Its TD-Series of transportable dome displays feature a compact and easy to deploy visualization system, available in configurations with three or five specialized projectors.
On the eve of the airshow, Esterline Corporation announced that Ontic, a BBA Aviation company, had signed a licensing agreement with its subsidiary Racal Acoustics for original equipment manufacturing and aftermarket support for various military and civil avionics products, including cockpit communication control systems. Ontic is “well placed to manage our aging range of avionics products,” said Dick Heinrich, Racal Acoustics’ managing director, “allowing us to focus on other core markets.”
