On a recent visit to the wilds of Albuquerque, NM, ANN spent
some quality time with the folks of Sandia Aerospace. In this
program, Sandia Aerospace details how their recently TSO'd SAC 7-35
Airdata Computer was designed specifically for the new generation
of integrated avionics that provides the pilot with a host of
information to make his flying safer and more economical.
Such information as real time Winds Aloft to aid the pilot in
selecting the altitude that provides the best cruise performance.
Density Altitude to help determine takeoff off distances and make
those important go, no-go decisions, particularly at high altitude
airports and those with short runways. Digital Outside Air
Temperature simplifies temperature monitoring to determine when
icing conditions may exist.
The SAC 7-35 provides capabilities that usually require four
different systems to perform. The SAC 7-35 is TSO'd as an Altitude
Encoder and provides both Gilliam Grey Code for legacy transponders
and RS 232 Pressure Altitude outputs for modern designs. The SAC
7-35 also has SANDIA Aerospace’s exclusive AIM (Altitude
Inflight Monitoring) that alerts the pilot anytime he deviates more
than 100 feet from his selected altitude.
With the addition of a fuel flow transducer(s) the SAC 7-35
supplies digital fuel flow information to navigation systems that
have Fuel Flow displays.
It is a solid state Air Data Computer that enhances the utility
of your navigation system and features Sandia Aerospace's
