Australian Army Chooses Sandel 4-ATI Displays for Kiowas

Australian Army Chooses Sandel 4-ATI Displays for Kiowas


Sandel, March 04, 2011 - Vista, CA -- Sandel Avionics has announced that its 4-ATI SA4550 Primary Attitude (EADI) and SN4500 Primary Navigation (EHSI) Displays have been chosen by the Australian Army to upgrade its fleet of Bell 206B-1 Kiowa helicopters. Panel design and installation work for the systems, which included Sandel's on-demand NVIS option, was performed by Sikorsky Helitech in Brisbane.

With an unmatched 180-degree viewing angle and high sunlight readability, Sandel's 4-ATI SN4500 and SA4550 displays were designed as form, fit and Increased function replacements for older electromechanical displays. These compact, modular units are self-contained, making them easy to install, and attitude and NAV units may be installed separately or in tandem; both feature SandelSmart™ I/O to interface with virtually any digital or analog aircraft, and both are available with optional on-demand NVIS compatibility. For military applications, all of these units are certified to very demanding helicopter gun ship vibration levels in accordance with DO160F, and are available with optional analog and digital TACAN interfaces.

"We determined that their unique combination of features and rugged reliability, all at an attractive price, made the selection of the Sandel 4-ATI displays an easy one," said Ray Formosa, Program Manager at the Army Aviation Systems Program Office. "In fact, we're planning on buying additional shipsets of these systems later this year."

"This selection further confirms the value of our 4-ATI units for military retrofit," said Jerry Henry, Sandel's Director of Sales. "We're pleased that our COTS products can provide reliable performance at a reasonable price, extending the useful life of these Kiowa helicopters."

Sandel Avionics, located in Vista, California, is a privately held company that provides compact integrated display systems for business aviation, air transport and regional, and rotary-wing aircraft. Recent successes include the company’s best-selling, turbine-class ST3400 TAWS and its 4-ATI retrofit primary flight displays, and its new HeliTAWS™ is the helicopter industry’s first complete helicopter safety solution
