L-3 Has YOUR Safety In Mind...
L-3 Avionics Systems is a leading designer and manufacturer of
advanced cockpit avionics for general aviation, business jet, air
transport and military markets.
The company provides a wide array of avionics safety
technologies such as the GH-3000 electronic and J.E.T.® standby
instruments, SkyWatch® Collision Avoidance Systems,
Landmark™ Terrain Awareness Warning Systems (TAWS),
Stormscope® weather mapping systems and the new IRIS™
Infrared Imaging System. L-3 Avionics is known for making advanced
technologies affordable for General Aviation pilots.
IRIS: Flying At Night Will Never Be The Same
L-3 Avionics Systems' new IRIS makes enhanced vision affordable
for all types of aircraft. This revolutionary system improves
visibility of almost any object, day or night.
IRIS displays a real-time, gray-scale image of the runway
environment, other aircraft, terrain, people, animals and obstacles
on a cockpit display. These images provide pilots with better
situational awareness during taxi and ramp operations and an
additional horizon reference during departure and approach. At
night and during poor visibility conditions, IRIS helps pilots see
obstacles that are invisible to the naked eye. During the day,
pilots can see obstacles otherwise obscured by bright oncoming
light or solar glare.
Unlike competitors, IRIS features patented Barium Strontium
Titanate (BST) detector technology, which makes it immune to solar
radiation. It provides an uninterrupted, continuously calibrated
image with unsurpassed 320 x 240 pixel clarity, even during turns
and maneuvers. IRIS provides a smooth, consistent image at an
SkyWatch: Better From Every Angle
For more than 10 years, pilots have trusted L-3 Avionics'
SkyWatch Collision Avoidance Systems to help them fly safely.
SkyWatch was the first active Collision Avoidance System certified
for General Aviation. It offers the most display options, the
greatest number of targets displayed, the farthest display range
and the longest warranty of any GA Collision Avoidance System. It
features a single antenna that provides omni-directional coverage
and outperforms dual antenna systems for GA aircraft. It also
self-tests and calibrates to meet TCAS specifications, offers
Verbal Intruder Positioning (VIP) and is the only traffic system to
offer multiple heading inputs for unmatched targeting accuracy.
SkyWatch has been installed in more than 10,000 single engine
airplanes, helicopters, luxury business jets and is the choice of
top aircraft manufacturers worldwide.
Stormscope: How Fresh Is Your Weather?
L-3 Avionics Systems' Stormscope delivers critical lightning
data in the first few seconds of a thunderstorm and helps pilots
make smarter and quicker decisions to avoid lightning and
associated hazards like turbulence and wind shear.
Data-link weather systems only monitor cloud to ground strikes,
which represent just 10 to 20 percent of the entire lightning
picture. Stormscope detects all lightning activity and provides the
most comprehensive, real-time thunderstorm depiction available.
Many pilots who have data-link weather also choose to use
Stormscope as a complementary system to enhance safety. With
Stormscope, pilots are able to make informed, flight critical
decisions about thunderstorm avoidance and fly with greater
