    Genesys Aerosystems at Heli-Expo 2022

    Genesys Aerosystems, March 14, 2022 - Mineral Wells, TX – Genesys Aerosystems, a Moog Inc. company, announced today that it has started development of the 4th axis on the HeliSAS® Autopilot and Stability Augmentation System.

    The 4th axis brings Hover & Hold functionality as well as collective control to the highly-successful HeliSAS® product line.

    The new functionality provides operators with an easy single-button access to enter the helicopter into a stable fixed-position hover and hold orientation for a hands-free operation to focus on other priorities. It also includes collective control to ensure proper speed inputs for all phases of flight.

    “As part of the Moog Aircraft Segment, Genesys has been able to strengthen our research and development capability, and we are working together to bring 4th axis capability to the already full-featured HeliSAS® system” states Jamie Luster, Director of Sales and Marketing for Genesys Aerosystems.

    Pricing for the 4-axis HeliSAS® will be announced at the completion of the certification and the issuance of the STC, which is expected by late 2023. HeliSAS will be available in the field through Genesys Aerosystems approved dealers and through existing partners such as Metro Aviation and XP Services on the EC145e and UH-60 respectively. Preorders can be submitted ahead of certification completion through authorized Genesys dealers.

    HeliSAS® is a patented, lightweight, and affordable attitude-based autopilot and stability augmentation system. The workload-reducing autopilot incorporates modes such as heading, navigation, approach, vertical speed, indicated speed, and altitude hold.

    Designed to be on all the time, the stability augmentation system will bring the helicopter back to a neutral attitude by simply easing the forces applied or simply letting go of the cyclic should the pilot become incapacitated, spatially disoriented, or lose visual references.

    In addition to the crucial SAS abilities, the system features over speed and under speed envelope protection, keeping pilots and occupants safely in the flight envelope while the autopilot is on.

    Genesys Introduces the Genesys Control Panel (GCP)

    Genesys Aerosystems, a Moog Inc. company, announced today its new Genesys Control Panel (GCP) for its current Genesys Digital Radio (GDR) product line.

    The GCP provides additional interface and control options for the GDR Nav/Comm integrated radio product when not installing with the Genesys Avionics Suite®. The GCP provides users with a single controller for VHF Comm, VHF Nav, and UHF Comm frequencies. The GDR also continues to maintain third party compatibility to other approved Nav/Comm radio controllers.

    “The GCP was designed to offer customers as many options as possible when installing our digital radios as a retrofit solution” states Jamie Luster, Director of Sales and Marketing for Genesys Aerosystems. “The radios are already being used by several OEMs with our EFIS displays and there is a huge customer base that needs radio upgrades with a stand-alone display option.”

    The GCP will be available starting Q1, 2023. Pricing for the GCP will be announced at the completion of the certification, scheduled for October 2022. GCP will be available in the field through Genesys Aerosystems approved dealers. Preorders can be submitted ahead of certification completion through authorized Genesys dealers.

    The GCP is a remote Dzus mounted Nav/Comm radio controller compatible with the single-box integrated Genesys Digital Radio Nav/Comm product line, called the GDR. The GCP provides command and control for the UHF and VHF communication and navigation frequencies handled by the GDR.

    The GDR is a family of remote-mount, software-definable radios. They feature combined VOR/localizer/glideslope and marker beacon navigation and VHF communication with a frequency range of 118-136 MHz or 118-156 MHz and 25 or 8.33 kHz channelization with transmit power of 16 or 25 watts. Embedded UHF 225-400MHz communication is also available as an option.

    The GDR is capable of voice communications between aircraft, ground stations and other aircraft, as well as receiving and processing VOR beacon signals for navigation and instrument landing systems (LOC/GS/MBR). The radio can operate up to 55,000 feet, and between -55 and +70 Celsius. With 8.33 and 25 kHz spacing, the GDR is capable of operating around the world.

    Finally, the radio has achieved Design Assurance Level “A,” the highest level in safety assessment for software, as well as MIL-STD 704E and 810G accommodating all segments of the aviation market.
