Ultra Electronics to supply landing gear and door control electronics for the Gulfstream G500 and G600 aircraft

Ultra Electronics is proud to announce that its Controls business, based in Greenford UK, has been selected to supply electronic equipment on the newly announced Gulfstream G500 and G600 aircraft. Ultra will supply the landing gear control computer, the steering control computer and the electric main entry door control computer. The landing gear control computer processes information from a number of proximity sensors that monitor the position of the landing gear and landing gear doors. It uses this information to control the extension and retraction of the landing gear. The steering control computer processes pilot demands from either the rudder control pedals or an integral tiller mounted on the unit. It then provides closed loop control of the nose wheel steering angle using sensors and a hydraulic actuator connected to the gear. Finally the electric main entry door control computer controls the locking and unlocking of the aircraft's main entry door.

Based on forecast sales of these aircraft Ultra anticipates that these contracts will generate revenue in excess of £45 million over a multi-year contract.

Rakesh Sharma, Chief Executive of Ultra commented:

“We are delighted to have secured these new contracts with Gulfstream, which follow on from an earlier contract for similar equipment on the G650. We are looking forward to maintaining this excellent relationship during the production and support phases of the programme.”
