New fleet of Enstrom helicopters will be equipped with Sandel's Primary Navigation Displays and AHRS with Reversionary Attitude Display mode
Sandel Avionics, Inc. has announced it has been chosen by the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF) to provide its 3-ATI SN3500 Primary Navigation Display and SG102 Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) with unique Reversionary Attitude Display mode for a fleet of 30 new Enstrom 480B turbine helicopters purchased by the JGSDF. A representative of the Japanese military met with Sandel and Enstrom representatives at the HAI Heli-Expo 2011 and specified that Sandel's package was exactly what they wanted in their new training helicopter fleet. The final purchase order was submitted to Enstrom Helicopter for the fleet purchase at HAI Heli-Expo 2012. Enstrom will begin configuring the JGSDF helicopters with the Sandel products immediately and plans call for completing helicopter deliveries over the next three years.
