Aspen Announces Software Price For Integrated AOA

Cost Of Patent-Pending Solution Set At Just Under $2,000

Aspen Avionics announced today the pricing for its recently introduced Evolution Angle of Attack Indicator (AOA). Aspen’s patent-pending solution seamlessly integrates AOA technology directly into its Evolution primary flight and multi-function displays. The software upgrade will be listed at $1,995 and is expected to be available in July 2015.

“We are offering an affordably-priced, software-based angle of attack safety product that provides real-time stall margin awareness without hardware, cabling or aircraft modifications. The only tasks associated with the installation consists of a simple software upgrade to the Aspen primary and/or the multi-function flight displays, plus a short calibration flight as part of the return to service,” said Perri Coyne, director of marketing operations.

Aspen’s Evolution AOA indicator calculates angle of attack from the flight envelope data received from the air data computer and attitude heading reference system (AHRS) integrated in the Evolution 1000 PFD or Evolution 1000 MFD, and a certified GPS. It does not require additional hardware, nor does it require any external aircraft modifications or sensors, saving significant resources on installation costs.

Aspen says the AOA Indicator Improves safety by providing real time flaps up and down stall margin awareness. It enables the pilot to see the available lift before changing the configuration − crucial when making a go-around.

The intuitive display provides an immediate, clear visual display of trend toward stall and stall margin. Pilot comprehends important information at a glance.

Aspen's AOA requires no additional probes, wiring or equipment. Installation cost and down time are minimal. The AOA is displayed on the Aspen PFD or MFD, putting information in the pilot’s natural field of view.

Aspen anticipates its Evolution AOA will be available in July 2015.

Aspen president and CEO John Uczekaj said that the company has seen six months of sustained growth, the best such period since 2008, and hinted at new safety-enhancing functions in its avionics and displays to be released over the next year.
