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.

is currently working on projects involving automatic collision

enhancement, among many others.

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...
