Astronautics Corporation of America will provide its Badger Pro+ integrated flight display system for SUBARU Corporation’s new SUBARU BELL 412EPX, the latest version of the 412 series. SUBARU, in partnership with Bell, is developing the SUBARU BELL 412EPX which is utilized for UH-X as a replacement for the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force’s UH-1J fleet.
Astronautics’ Badger Pro+ for the SUBARU BELL 412EPX consists of four 6×8-inch, high-resolution displays showing primary flight, navigation, and engine data, as well as system synoptics, weight and balance, and checklist information. The system displays high-definition video from multiple inputs and provides night vision compatibility. Badger Pro+ integrates information from across all systems on the aircraft to provide an operationally advanced pilot interface.
Badger Pro+ is the latest generation of Astronautics’ Badger display family with demonstrated reliability over 1,000,000 flight hours in the harshest environments.
“Astronautics has built its reputation on designing reliable, rugged, and innovative solutions that solve our customers’ toughest challenges. The Badger Pro+ system gives the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force enhanced situational awareness to reduce pilot workload and exceptional video capabilities for mission support,” said Astronautics President Chad Cundiff. “The readability of the displays is world class with color, contrast, letter sizing, and fonts that provide exceptional viewability.”
Astronautics Badger Pro+ is also the integrated flight display system on the new production BELL 412EPX and Bell 429
