Genesys Aerosystems Releases Ultra-Compact Air Data Computer

NanoADC Boasts Tiny, Flyweight Footprint Great for "Optionally Piloted Aircraft"

Genesys Aerosystems of Moog has seen its TSOA certification of the new NanoADC, a tiny, 304 gram/10.7 ounce Air Data Computer.

"Approximately the size of a deck of cards", the NanoADC is tailor-made for applications where small footprints and light weight are vital, like the ever-expanding market of uncrewed, semi-autonomous vehicles. The first certified application of the NanoADC was a 440-lb Leonardo Rotary UAS, proving out the system's military bonafides right out the gate.

The NanoADC is now MIL-STD-qualified and FAA-certified with critical Level-A software, in addition to meeting the "highest required environmental categories for IFR approved helicopters and transport-category airplanes". Sure, on its own the NanoADC probably isn’t the most exciting product announcement, but designers and developers out in the aeronautical ether can make even more impressive equipment with a collection of smaller, lighter parts and widgets. When taken alone, the technological march of progress is rarely amazing or sexy, but once it’s all wrapped up into a final product like an even lighter, more capable uncrewed aircraft a few years from now, the changes are apparent - and Genesys has a hand in that.

“We have taken an existing product, with nearly 20 years of proven service history, and reduced the size and weight for use in small aircraft which still require extremely high certification levels,” says Paul Stoelting, General Manager of Genesys. “While it may be larger than non-certified air data computers that use low-cost consumer electronics, ours enable an aircraft to be FAA or EASA certified for operation in commercial airspace and over populated areas.”
