Sagem Avionics Inc. (Safran) announces that the ICDS 8A PFD/EMS glass cockpit will be installed on the SKYe SH09 helicopter of Marenco Swisshelicopter AG. The ICDS 8A PFD/EMS glass cockpit benefits helicopter owners by increasing situational awareness through customizable engine displays with intuitive LED interfaces.
The ICDS 8A incorporates many features such as a customizable, fully configurable user defined checklist, display of primary flight and navigational information, engine management data, pop-up engines with display in split map/engine screen mode, optional video display allows for Camera, FLIR and VGA inputs, custom user databases (operators can supply data points for moving map), options for storm scope, data recording capabilities, traffic awareness system display interfaces, and improved fuel management function.
A unique feature of the installation is that it is the first interface to the Honeywell HTS900-2 1D FADEC engine. The ICDS 8A will read 21 channels of FADEC data, as well as 38 channels of other airframe and engine parameters.
Thierry Derrien, President & CEO of Sagem Avionics, Inc. stated, “We are very pleased to have been selected for the Marenco SKYe SH09 helicopter glass cockpit program. The opportunity to have Sagem glass installed on an OEM program is aligned with our business model and will ensure ICDS success in the near future.”
