Sandel Adds WireWatch™ Wire-Strike Protection Feature to HeliTAWS™


Powerful wire-strike avoidance feature expands value of the HeliTAWS helicopter terrain awareness warning system (HTAWS)


Sandel Avionics has introduced a revolution-


ary adaptive wire-strike avoidance feature called WireWatch, which will be implemented through the company’s advanced ST3400H HeliTAWS terrain avoidance system. Comprising a detailed database and a proactive alerting capability, WireWatch further enhances the operational safe- ty that the TSO’d HeliTAWS brings to the cock- pit by helping helicopter pilots avoid transmission lines and other such hard-to-see hazards.


“We see WireWatch as one of a series of


important safety enhancements that HeliTAWS can provide for all kinds of helicopter operations,” said Gerry Block, Sandel’s CEO. “Just as HeliTAWS itself helps pilots avoid controlled flight into terrain, our WireWatch feature helps eliminate the hazard of near-invisible transmission lines by enabling helicopter crews to spot known wires,” he noted.. ◆
