The Boeing Company has selected AEM (Anodyne Electronics Manufacturing Corp) to supply the Internal PA System (IPS) for use on the CH-47 Chinook Helicopters for the Indian Government. This is the first time that the Chinook has been equipped with an Internal Public Address System, and AEM is pleased to provide the solution.
“AEM has recently completed development and formal qualification of a new line of Loud Speaker Amplifiers for use in Public Address/Loud Hailer and Passenger Address systems.” stated Ray Lewis, Vice President of Business Development for AEM. “The extensive testing and qualification (DO-160G and DO-214) done on the new products allows us to offer a COTS solution for the CH-47 IPS, meeting Boeing’s key requirements for its Indian customer.”
Integration work began in March 2016, with production units scheduled for delivery in 2017 and 2018.
