By: Stacy Honda, Marketing Manager

Featured Flight Deck Upgrade

During the LIMA 2017 exhibition, the first Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) S-61-4 NURI helicopter with Universal Avionics flight deck upgrade was delivered by AIROD. The upgrade features 4 EFI-890H Advanced Flight Displays and a single UNS-1Lw Multi-Missions Management System (MMMS), Universal's Flight Management System (FMS) for mission support.

The displays and MMMS integrate with new dual LCR-100 Attitude Heading Reference System sensors, dual Thommen AC-32 Air Data Computers, dual Rockwell Collins NAV-4000s, DF-938 Direction Finder, a single DME-4000 and a new EuroAvionics EuroNav 7 Mission Computer. In addition, a new RDR-1600 Search Radar is being fitted and will be displayed on the EFI-890H Multi-Function Displays. The displays are Night Vision Goggle-compatible and also integrate with the existing AN/APN-209 Radar Altimeters and GE SN-502 Autopilot.

The new and modernized flight deck enables the aircraft to fly in all weather conditions and both day and night, by leveraging new functionality including Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) operations. The MMMS provides a significant improvement in Search and Rescue (SAR) operations with the built-in search patterns and will be coupled with the GE SN-502 Autopilot. In addition, the upgrade allows for significant extension of the aircrafts' lifespan.
