Among a variety of recent product developments, BendixKing is sending clear signals to operators of helicopters that it aims to support their needs, improving the safety and efficiency of their operations into the future…
KRA 405B Radar Altimeter
BendixKing has been part of the helicopter market for years and will continue to be for many to come, as demonstrated by its KRA 405B radar altimeter. The KRA 405 has been relied on by operators for more than 25 years but its predecessor takes reliability to a new level.
Among the improvements, the KRA 405B is 50% lighter, has a 70% reduction in primary circuit boards, and offers more power than its predecessor. Whether operators are doing Level 1 landings or search and rescue, the KRA 405B provides time-tested reliability.
KT 74 ADS-B Solution
Meanwhile, global mandates for ADS-B will soon be realized and will play a vital role for controllers managing the growing number of aircraft in today’s worldwide fleet.
The KT 74 supports the ADS-B Out 1090 ES (Extended Squitter), which is the standard for ADS-B around the world, and it’s certified for Part 27 helicopters. The KT 74 is also a plug and play slide-in replacement for the popular BendixKing KT 76A/C and KT 78 Transponders.
Weather Radar Pod
Across the board, BendixKing continues to innovate, creating new equipment to help helicopter operators increase the safety and efficiency of their operations. In 2017, the company partnered with Avionics Services out of Brazil to develop the first ever weather radar pod for the AS 350 helicopter.
The system uses a BendixKing RDR 2000/2060 which is fully stabilized to +/- 30° combined pitch and roll, while antenna stabilization keeps your screen clear of ground returns during moderate Helicopter maneuvers.
BendixKing KSN 770 passed vibration testing on helicopters
Pilots can analyze storm segments vertically, giving them the information needed to determine the intensity of the storm. The radar can also be used to look at the angle of the cell's leading edge to determine direction of movement.
To effectively display this radar information the BendixKing KSN 770/765 has passed vibration testing for installation on helicopters.
