WHAT’S ONBOARD


As befits a fully capable multi-role military helicopter, the Bell 407MRH is outfitted with the latest in modern avionics technology. This includes a full glass cockpit based upon a Garmin G1000H avionics system with dual GPS, Mode S transponder, a radar altimeter, and synthetic vision. (Each pilot has their own dedicated Garmin 1000H display on the cockpit front console, on either side of the Pathfinder MMS display.)


To support its military missions, the


407MRH’s Pathfinder MMS system interconnects the 407MRH’s commercial aircraft equipment to the special mission equipment. The Pathfinder MMS includes a digital moving map that can be used for tactical mission planning. This MMS system is compatible with FalconView and


Google Earth, and provides Mission Cycle Tools to calculate weight, balance, and fuel consumption.


On the communications side, the 407MRH has military-quality dual integrated tactical ARC-210 multi-band radios, a Terrestrial Trunked radio (TETRA), and a BMS Helicoder 4 microwave video downlink system. Each pilot has a complete control system for the radios, mounted underneath their Garmin 1000H monitor. The helicopter also has an APX-121 Mode IV


IFF


transponder, plus an L-3 Avionics Systems 3900.2 electronic standby instrumentation system that provides backup airspeed, altitude, and attitude data in a single small display window. (The 407MRH’s tail rotor drive fairing designed by SEA has a built-in shelf for mounting three antennas.)


The 407MRH’s cockpit is night vision goggle-compatible – including the cockpit and console lighting - and is equipped with infrared navigation lights and a dual- mode IR/white light searchlight. To provide protection against hostile fire, the 407MRH has lightweight modular cockpit and cabin armor, plus carbon fiber doors and mission equipment shrouds. “The doors and shrouds were custom-built for Southeast Aerospace for this aircraft,” Rodriguez said. “The carbon fiber doors are 50 percent lighter than the original OEM versions.”


Again, all of these 407MRH elements are installed or kitted by Southeast Aerospace. This ensures that the aircraft is ready for the final finishing work by NorthStar; both on this side of ‘the pond’ and the other side. As for armament: The Bell 407MRH comes
