Countdown to S-97 first flight: qual testing with Korry cockpit solutions
Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp., has started system-level qualification testing for the S-97 RAIDER™ program in its System Integration Lab with Korry-branded cockpit display and control solutions from Esterline.
“Esterline Control Systems has been very responsive and adaptable to the needs of the Mission System Integration team,” said Dave Adams, Sikorsky's S-97 Mission System Integration IPT Lead. “Their support, flexibility, and on-time execution has enabled us to begin software development and integration early in the program.”
Esterline has developed the 6x8-inch Multifunction Display (MFD) and the 5x7-inch Control Display Unit (CDU) with AMLCD technology to provide high-quality graphics displays with minimal power, weight, size, and noise footprint. Each S-97 RAIDER uses two MFDs and one CDU to display primary flight instrument data, engine data, and aircraft subsystem status.
Our new platform identity: Esterline Control and Communication Systems
Our Esterline Control Systems platform is merging its capabilities with those of our sister platform, Esterline Communication Systems, and we will now operate under the combined name Esterline Control and Communication Systems. As a unified team, we will build on the presence we’ve already established with our customers, employees, and other stakeholders.
You can expect to see this identity change implemented across our website, packaging, forms, brochures, and other materials over the coming weeks. The product and service brands you are familiar with — AVISTA, BVR, Eclipse, Korry, Mason, Palomar, and Racal Acoustics — remain the same, and you can continue dealing with your usual Esterline sales, customer service, and engineering contacts.
Esterline Control Systems is an international leader in the engineering and manufacture of human-machine interface (HMI) technology, featuring the AVISTA, BVR, Korry, and Mason control product and service brands, which are benchmarks in their markets. The variety and depth of our control systems expertise allow you to select and integrate the right mix of solutions for your HMI technology needs in any critical application.
