Aero-TV: Up For A Challenge - Sandel Aids NASA Research

Sandel TAWS Selected for High-Flying NASA Program

Tough duty... let's face it, having anything to do with either the F-15 or F-18 is a high point for any aviator... and the folks at Sandel are getting their chance to live part of the dream through the products that they have provided to NASA under a research program.

And best of all, they're working with NASA's Dryden Flight 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.

To say the least, the gang at Sandel is pretty happy with the 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...

Sandel Avionics, located in Vista, California, 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.
