March 4, 2008, Vista, CA – Sandel Avionics has announced it will partner with Aero Dynamix, Inc., of Euless, TX, to offer NVG-compatible versions of its advanced LED retrofit displays, including the new 4-ATI SA4550 ADI- and SN4500 HSI-replacements and the popular 3-ATI SN3500 EHSI and ST3400 TAWS. Providing MIL-L-85762, MIL-STD-3009 and DO-275 compliance, the new NVG-compatible products are designed for both military and commercial applications to support such missions as transport, SAR, law enforcement and EMT for both helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft. Aero Dynamix is also an authorized Sandel dealer and will provide sales support for military customers.
Offering significant maintenance and performance advantages over electromechanical units, Sandel’s high-resolution displays feature 200-pixel-per-inch screens — double the standard for ‘glass cockpits’ — along with easy-install I/O and a full range of NAV, reference and safety sensor inputs. With superior image quality, an operating life rated in excess of 10,000 hours MTBF, and the flexibility of modular installation, these turbine-class systems represent an extremely cost-effective flight deck solution for a wide range of digital and analog aircraft types.
“We’re pleased to be able to offer this important option with our products, in large part because we’ve been very impressed with the quality of Aero Dynamix’ NVG-compatible solution,” said Gerry Block, Sandel’s CEO. “We know that many helicopter operators, in particular, have been seeking affordable NVG-compatible retrofit avionics, and this upgrade — along with our full line of vibration-resistant helicopter products — addresses their needs,” he added.
