Aero-TV: Evolving Horizons -– GRT Avionics Looks To The Future

Avionics Development In The Light Sport Aircraft Market Continues To Impress

It started simply enough... according to the folks at GRT -- "Grand Rapids Technologies was founded in 1991 by an electrical engineer named Greg Toman.

His day job involved writing algorithms that powered inertial navigation systems for the Boeing 737 and the Lockheed C-130 Hercules. Greg enjoyed his engineering work, but the world of experimental aircraft held his true passion. He realized that the technology he worked with every day for the 'big guys' could be adapted to serve even the smallest ultralights.

He designed the first Engine Information System to monitor the two-stroke Rotax engine on his own Mini-Max ultralight. Soon, other builders wanted their own EIS, and Grand Rapids Technologies was born. Greg’s company still produces the EIS today, while its sister company, GRT Avionics, focuses on electronic flight instrumentation systems for experimental aircraft."

One of the strengths that GRT boasts, and one of the reasons that Team Aerodynamix has partnered with this company, is the firm's "Open Interface Design." GRT says their EFIS systems "have always been designed with versatility in mind. The more ways the EFIS can communicate, the greater the variety of devices it can use. Because every airplane has a unique mission and budget, GRT systems are designed as an 'open interface,' which gives builders a wide range of choices for radios, transponders, ADS-B receivers, and other devices."
