All the latest Archangel press releases, events, and articles.

Marenco Swisshelicopters, an Archangel Systems customer, completed the first flight of their revolutionary SKYe SH09 helicopter on October 2nd.  A brand new design with composite body, the SH09 uses Archangel’s AHR75 AHRS for attitude and heading data. The air data computer is from our friends at Aerosonic.

The prototype helicopter spent a total of approximately 5 minutes hovering 2 meters high at Marenco’s Mollis airport site. While the time spent airborne was limited, the tests did provide vital data on the helicopter’s reaction to in-flight structural stresses.  Subsequent test flights are scheduled to take place once the data have been analyzed.

Marenco will use build two additional SH09 prototypes, using all three in their EASA certification efforts. Certification is slated for 2016.  Marenco currently has over 50 units on back-order and predicts that production will eventually reach 80 per year.

Aerosonic's OASIS Standby Instrument

Aerosonic Corp. Executive V.P., Mark Perkins, announced today that Archangel Systems’ AHR50 AHRS has been selected for the OASIS standby instrument system. “We saw opportunity in the standby market and had all of the technology in-house except the AHRS. Archangel and its AHR50 are a good match for us. They have both the product and the expertise to work at the systems level with our engineers. We expect to have TSO approvals in place during Q2, 2013.”

The AHR50 is designed as an embeddable AHRS in that a portion of the DO-160E categories are certified with the customer providing EMI / EMC and power input protection. Software is certified to DO-178B Level A. If needed, Archangel can also provide support for the customer’s TSO submission package.

AHR50 AHRS

From Michael Greene, Archangel’s CEO, “Aerosonic’s standby strategy is precisely why we developed the AHR50. It makes short work of the customer’s AHRS development and certification efforts. They’ve done a beautiful job with the product and should capture a strong market share.”
