Aircraft rely heavily on proven air data computers (ADC) to provide trusted airspeed and altitude parameters that are essential to safe and efficient operation. Rotorcraft experience some unique phenomena because of rotor downwash which can affect the accuracy of pressure measurements and fleets often consist of different aircraft that can create additional logistics overheads.
The effects of rotor downwash can be alleviated with digital filtering that reduces the pneumatic noise in air pressure without adding weight like mechanical solutions. Multiple aircraft can be fitted with identical ADCs as long as each ADC is capable of holding multiple sets of configuration data to match the target platform.
Curtiss-Wright has developed leading technologies within its ADC product line to address these needs. High accuracy sensors and decades of experience provide stable data while digital filtering technology mitigate rotor downwash effects. Fully rugged design ensures reliable operation. The needs of diverse fleets are simplified with a single unit being usable on up to 15 different platforms through a simple pin-out selection. Curtiss-Wright has over 40 years’ proven experience developing air data solutions and that knowledge helps us get you the best solution available on the market today.
