Some of the major projects we have completed

We undertook design and implementation of an IHAS8000 system into the Pilatus PC12/45 aircraft.
This is a honeywell multi hazard awareness system, integrating Weather radar, Moving map, Traffic awareness sytem and Terrain awareness and warning system, all displayed on a Multi function display

This project involved all of the design work, installation, flight testing and documentation. We have been granted an australian STC for this system fit

We had a client who needed to run their PC mapping system from the aircraft GPS. Unfortunately, the data format required by the PC mapping system was different from any the GPS could output.
We designed an RS232 data converter, and developed the software to provide transparent data format translation to make the 2 systems talk to each other. The system has been operating trouble free for over 6 years
