Meggitt wins Dassault Falcon 5X braking and control

Meggitt PLC, the global aerospace, defence and energy group announces that Dassault has selected Meggitt Aircraft Braking Systems to supply the braking system and integrated control and monitoring unit for landing gear extension and retraction, nose wheel steering and aircraft hydraulic systems for the all-new Falcon 5X business jet.

The braking system includes nose and main wheels, carbon brakes, a fully integrated brake-by-wire brake control system and flight deck-based brake temperature and tyre pressure monitoring systems.

To perform the brake control and monitoring, landing gear, nose wheel steering and hydraulics systems, Meggitt will be providing an integrated landing gear and hydraulic system control computer featuring line replaceable modules for reduced weight and improved logistics.

Meggitt's association with Dassault is longstanding, starting with the Mystère/Falcon 20. Meggitt's braking systems are now on the Falcon 10, 20, 50, 900 and 7X aircraft families comprising nearly 1200 aircraft.

Stephen Young, CEO commented: “This award demonstrates new capabilities in nose wheel steering, landing gear and hydraulic monitoring and control and is a significant milestone in Meggitt's continuing expansion into ATA 32 system control and monitoring, all of which must interface with aircraft, avionics, landing gear and hydraulic systems.”
