Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) is displaying its advanced avionics systems at this yearâ€™s Heli-Expo in Booth # 3001. Show attendees are invited to drop by and find out more about the companyâ€™s industry leading flight management systems (FMS), Wide Area Augmentation System Global Positioning System (WAAS GPS) receivers, electronic flight bags (EFB) and tactical mission displays.
Flight Management Systems
CMCâ€™s Flight Management Systems are in service with over 60 airlines and military operators. The CMA-9000 is a family of compact FMS variants that is well suited for modern digital cockpits in fixed and rotary wing aircraft for both civil and military applications. It is the next-generation FMS derived from CMCâ€™s successful CMA-900 FMS/GPS and CMA-3000 helicopter FMS. The single unit CMA-9000 is civil certified for multi-sensor navigation capabilities.
CMCâ€™s FMS systems have been selected for the onboard avionics and fleet upgrades of several aircraft types, including the Swiss Army Super Puma Mark I fleet, the Bavarian Police and German Army EC-135 training helicopters, Franceâ€™s SÃ©curitÃ© Civile EC-145s, the French Air Forceâ€™s EC-725 Combat SAR helicopters, the Czech Air Forceâ€™s Mi-171S transport helicopters and an international AS-332 Super Puma helicopter fleet upgrade.
high-integrity aviation GPS technology and products
CMCâ€™s position as technology leader for high-integrity aviation GPS technology and products was reconfirmed with the certification of its IntegriFlight WAAS GPS product family by the Federal Aviation Administration and Transport Canada for stand-alone approach operations. This has been accomplished by the addition of CMCâ€™s CMA-5025 product as a Control Panel for the companyâ€™s CMA-5024 (WAAS) GPS receiver.
The CMA-5024 is an air transport quality WAAS GPS receiver specifically designed for ease of retrofit and adaptability to either existing or new build aircraft. Due to its compact and rugged nature, and extremely high reliability, it is an ideal solution across a wide range of aircraft, from helicopters and business jets to airliners.
