Korea Aerospace Industries selects Sandel HeliTAWS™ for factory-new aircraft

Sandel Avionics Inc., the global leader in terrain, obstacle and wire alerting technology for helicopters, has signed a long-term supply agreement with Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI). Sandel will supply its new Mil 810-G qualified HeliTAWS™ ST3453H for factory installation on new KAI helicopters manufactured in Korea, including Surions in production for the Korean National Police. Surions are derivatives of the Korean Utility Helicopter adapted to meet airborne law requirements.

Sandel HeliTAWS is the industry's first multihazard avoidance system for helicopters that alerts against terrain, obstacles and wires, and is the only certified panel-mount solution. Incorporating Sandel's proprietary TruAlert™ technology, HeliTAWS enables pilots to take off, cruise, hover and land at off-airport locations without triggering nuisance alerts. Exceeding the TSO-C194 compliance, HeliTAWS includes an easy-to-interpret, color, high-resolution display for 3D terrain, obstacles, flight plan and traffic overlay along with Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) compatibility.

"We are pleased that KAI has chosen our revolutionary HeliTAWS technology for its helicopter production," said Gerry Block, CEO & President of Sandel.

"Sandel looks forward to significant involvement in future projects over the term of this agreement in both civilian and military helicopters," said Jerry Henry, Director of Sales for Sandel. "We are extremely proud to be associated with a company as highly regarded as Korea Aerospace Industries."
