Sandel Avionics, based in Vista, Calif., will supply its ST3400 Terrain Avoidance Warning System (TAWS) for NASA for its F-18 and F-15 support aircraft at the Dryden Flight Research Center in Edwards, Calif.

“Sandel is proud to contribute to the safety of flight for such a prestigious and demanding research organization as NASA, especially in these high-performance aircraft,” said Jerry Henry, director of sales for Sandel.

ST3400 is an integrated panel-mount system that features a TAWS database, processor and high-resolution color display in a single unit. It meets TSO C151b for both Class A and Class B requirements. The ST3400 serves as a drop-in replacement for conventional RMI units, displaying terrain maps, topographic maps, navigation waypoint maps and TCAS data.
