Adaptive, Innovative and Flexible Visuals and Controls Approach
Esterline Corporation is displaying its latest Korry and Mason products at Aero India this year.
• Korry 389 switches – QUICK SWITCH programme
• Mason’s Harm’s Way Controllers (HaWC)
• Korry Utility Control System (UCS) touchscreen display technology
• Mason Flight Controls
The QUICK SWITCH programme has been developed in response to customers’ requests for shorter lead times. Esterline offers the Korry 389 QUICK SWITCH as standard within four weeks. A ‘three day’ option is also available, to further support enhanced aircraft dispatch reliability, sustainment and readiness of fighting forces for military aircraft.
Making their debut at Aero India are Esterline’s next-generation HaWC, innovatively engineered for evolving manned and unmanned ground, airborne and maritime applications.
The Korry UCS touchscreen display offers a 75% reduction in separate display and switching components. Korry UCS display technology increases ease of use for the crew, with control-panel functions more easily changed by updating software rather than hardware. The displays have an anti-fingerprint surface to ensure they remain readable and the glass screen is designed for life-of-the-aircraft durability. The display also has built-in triple-redundancy features to minimise the potential for failure.
Mason Flight Controls are designed and developed to meet specific aircraft requirements. Esterline works with its customers to provide them with design solutions responsive to their requirements. Mason control solutions are used in a wide range of aircraft, from the F-117 to the Space Shuttle.
“Our latest technology is well-placed to meet the emerging needs of indigenously-built military aircraft. As an existing US supplier to several aerospace primes and integrators, I feel very positive about our future business prospects in India,” commented Esterline Control and Communication System’s Senior Director, Marketing & Business Development.
