Eclipse Selects Crossbow AHRS
San Jose, Calif.-based Crossbow Technology Inc. announced earlier this month that its AHRS500GA product had been selected by Eclipse Aviation for attitude and heading reference systems (AHRS) aboard the Eclipse 500 light jet. Crossbow's AHRS500GA was certified by the FAA in 2003 and the company has a supplemental type certificate (STC) allowing its installation in more than 600 aircraft. In the Eclipse 500, the AHRS500GA will include a certified remote magnetometer as well as additional communication interfaces for ARINC429 and RS-485. The AHRS500GA will aggregate and route data communications for the air-data and GPS receivers to the cockpit display, according to the company.
