Sagem To Provide Integrated Cockpits For AS350s
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Air Support Division
(ASD) announced recently preliminary funding has been submitted to
upgrade its entire fleet of 14 AS350 B2 helicopters with Sagem
Integrated Cockpit Display Systems (ICDS).
The LAPD is the largest airborne municipal law enforcement
agency in the world, and made the decision last year to outfit
several of their B2’s with the Sagem ICDS on a trial basis.
Grant funding was later sought to upgrade and standardize the
entire fleet of A-Stars.
LAPD sought to upgrade their aircraft presently equipped with an
Electronic Heading Situation Indicator (EHSI) system only, and
standardize the fleet as much as possible. The Sagem ICDS are able
to provide Primary Flight Display (PFD) and Multi-Function Display
(MFD) with Engine Monitoring System (EMS) capabilities for their
AS350 B2s without the Thales Vehicle Engine Monitoring Device
LAPD aircraft without VEMD will be equipped with two displays
consisting of one PFD and one MFD with EMS. LAPD aircraft with VEMD
will be equipped with a PFD only.
Sagem tells ANN the LAPD flies 18,000 hours and responds to
38,000 calls for service each year.
