Will Supply GH-3001 ESIS For Army Chinooks
L-3 Avionics Systems announced Sunday at Heli-Expo 2009 a
multi-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract
with the US Army's Redstone Arsenal to supply the GH-3001
Electronic Standby Instrument System (ESIS) to support the
sustainment requirements for the Army's CH-47F Improved Cargo
Helicopter fleet. The $9.2 million program will run through the
first quarter of 2013.
"Our GH systems continue to deliver strong sales numbers thanks
to the exceptional safety and reliability they offer to both
commercial and military operators," said Larry Riddle, vice
president of business development for L-3 Avionics. "Receiving this
contract is a critical milestone for the company and streamlines
future US Army orders and deliveries."
Standard equipment on the CH-47F, the GH-3001 ESIS is a solid
state standby instrument that provides altitude, airspeed,
attitude, heading and vertical speed, as well as important GPS, FMS
and radio navigation information on a compact, three-inch display.
To ease the transition to standby instruments in an emergency,
information is laid out in a manner similar to the primary displays
and can be customized to better match the appearance of different
systems. A single GH-3001 provides enough situational information
to navigate an aircraft to safety, even in instrument
The GH-3001 will be on display at Heli-Expo, booth 2526.
The CH-47F Improved Cargo Helicopter is a tandem-rotor,
medium-lift helicopter manufactured by The Boeing Company. It is
currently in service in both Iraq and Afghanistan.
