A New Back-up Gyro From Sandia
At the Aircraft Electronics Association convention in Nashville, Sandia Aerospace introduced a new solid-state back-up gyro called the SAI for standby attitude instrument. At a $3,595 price point, the SAI has its own battery and onboard ADAHRS and can run at least 30 minutes without ship's power. It requires only power, ground, pitot and static input.
