Sandel Avionics Celebrates 15 Years in Business


Sandel Avionics, Inc., a global leader in compact, integrated display systems technologies, recently announced it is celebrating its 15­year anniversary. Sandel was founded in 1998 with the pur­ pose to bring high performance, color graphics avionics to unserved customers by recognizing that the emerging tech­ nology of rear projection could be used to produce compact cockpit displays. After a successful introduction of the ground breaking SN3308 Electronic HSI with ColorMap, Sandel turned its atten­


tion to Terrain Awareness and Warning Systems (TAWS), and redefined the fixed­wing TAWS market. By designing the Sandel ST3400 TAWS–a full color terrain warning display with advanced algorithms for the air transport market, and enabling entire fleets to improve safety at a low installed cost–it became and is the #1 selling TAWS today. Improving on TAWS, Sandel redefined the technology to eliminate nuisance alerts in real­world rotary­wing opera­ tions, giving superior safety benefits to helicopters only previously available to fixed­wing aircraft.


The Sandel product line includes Primary Navigation and Primary Attitude displays, AHRS, TAWS and HTAWS, which all have found applica­ tion in both civil and military use, as


consistent and measurable improvements in safety per­ formance over time.


“Our PRISM team has provided busi­ ness, helicopter, and air carrier opera­ tors with risk management and educa­ tional services that have added signifi­ cant value to their operations in terms of safety improvements and reduced operational risk,” continued Bill Yantiss. “We’re delighted to expand these services to the MRO community through on­site coaching and training sessions. Our Aviation Risk Management Online Resource (ARMOR) software is easily adaptable to your unique operational require­ ments and we have the training sys­ tems to support your management team.” ◆


well as worldwide adoption. Most recently, Sandel products are being delivered for Sikorsky’s new generation S­70i Black Hawks, Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) new factory­built heli­ copters, listed in Eurcopter’s bluebook for the EC135 and EC145, and Sandel HeliTAWS software imbedded in Rockwell Collins’ newly launched Helisure product line.


During the past 15 years, Sandel has won a number of awards including, AgustaWestland Safety Award, Aircraft Electronics Association Associate Member of the Year, and most recently SDBJ Innovation Award in Technology. Sandel also holds more than 30 U. S. and international patents and its prod­ ucts are included in approximately 50 FAA STCs. ◆
