[SatNews] This company is now certified for the solutions they provide to helicopters, and is the smallest and lightest in the industry.
Latitude Technologies, a global supplier of flight data monitoring, flight following, and Satcom solutions for all helicopter types, has achieved a Transport Canada Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for installation of Latitude’s IONode ION100 lightweight flight data recorder (LFDR) on the versatile Airbus EC135 light helicopter.
As part of the installation the Latitude unit is interfaced to the Airbus VEMD (Vehicle Engine Monitoring Device), providing timely and automated access to all digital bus data parameters for engines torque, temperature and RPMs. The IONode also captures and similarly distributes air data and heading parameters along with its built-in inertial and GPS sensor information.
Latitude’s IONode ION100 is the industry’s smallest and lightest with the expansion of the IONode ION100’s data management capability to include VEMD data output. The IONode ION100 now also ranks as one of the most versatile LFDRs on the market. The IONode ION100, available in four standard configurations to suit legacy as well fully digital aircraft, is being deployed on both fixed-wing and rotor-wing aircraft of progressive fleet operators across the globe.
