Research Center at Edwards AFB -- the agency's premier installation
for atmospheric flight research and operations.
Sandel tells ANN that their ST3400 Terrain Avoidance Warning
System (TAWS) was chosen by the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center
(DFRC), Edwards, CA, to equip F-18 and F-15 support aircraft.
Located in the western Mojave Desert, Dryden Flight Research Center
is currently working on projects involving automatic collision
avoidance technology, instrument performance and aviation safety
enhancement, among many others.

gig. "Sandel is proud to contribute to the safety of flight for
such a prestigious and demanding research organization as NASA,
especially in these high-performance aircraft," stated Jerry Henry,
Director of Sales for Sandel. We sure hope that Jerry gets a chance
to fly aboard one of those birds to see his gear in action...
