United Rotorcraft, a division of Air Methods, selected Becker Avionics’ ADS-B transponder, the BXT6500 and digital audio ICS, the DVCS610, for a Sikorsky S-70i Firehawk completion currently underway for a public safety operator.
“United Rotorcraft is focused on providing leading edge aircraft that meet our customer’s unique mission requirements,” said Art Torwirt, senior manager, government business development, United Rotorcraft. “Becker Avionics has been a terrific partner providing mission capable ADS-B transponders, digital audio ICS systems, and outstanding on-site product support for our Firehawk program.”
The BXT6500 transponder series is a ADS-B compliant transponder that combines what Becker describes as unique customer benefits, such as reduced size and weight, durable housing without ventilation slots or forced cooling, antenna diversity or single antenna configurations, digital interfaces, TCAS compatibility, and special mission capabilities.
The DVCS6100 is a mission proven, NVIS capable intercom system. Becker explains the intuitive HMI facilitates reliable communication for all aircraft types.
