Advent Aircraft Systems to supply eABS braking system for Boom Supersonic's XB-1 demonstrator aircraft

Advent Aircraft Systems today announced that it will supply its Advent eABSTM for Power Brake Systems to Boom Supersonic for XB-1, its Mach-2.2 demonstrator aircraft. The Advent eABS for Power Brake Systems incorporates Advent's flagship anti-skid braking system technology and will help optimize the braking action of XB-1, while enhancing safety and reducing the risk of tyre damage.

XB-1 will validate key technologies for safe, efficient travel at Mach-2.2. Data collected from its test flights will refine the design and engineering of Overture, Boom's supersonic commercial airliner.

"It was critical to find an anti-skid control system for XB-1 that met our technical requirements in a responsive, timely and competitive manner, and Advent's eABS system exceeded our expectations," said Nick Sheryka, Chief Engineer at Boom Supersonic. "We're getting closer to flight testing XB-1 and it's exciting to work with partners like Advent to supply crucial parts of the aircraft."

"Advent is pleased to have been chosen as a supplier to the impressive Boom project," said Ken Goldsmith, Managing Director at Advent. "We look forward to supporting the Boom Supersonic team during the ongoing development and testing of XB-1."

With a total component weight of five pounds, the eABS for Power Brake Systems is derived from Advent's proven anti-skid braking system certified by the FAA, EASA, and TCCA with variants in use on commercial and military, manned and unmanned platforms. It consists of anti-skid control valves, a digital electronic control unit, cockpit control switches and specially designed wheel speed transducers and hubcaps.
