Sandel Adds WireWatch to HeliTAWS
Vista, Calif.-based Sandel Avionics has introduced WireWatch, a wire-strike avoidance feature for the ST3400H HeliTAWS. CEO Gerry Block noted during Heli-Expo that WireWatch “helps eliminate the hazard of near-invisible transmission lines and other such hard-to-see hazards.” He continued that capabilities are based on the combination of a detailed database with a proactive alerting function. Other features include TrueAlert, 3-D terrain display, Class A HTAWS functionality and night vision imaging system (NVIS) compatibility.
