Transas delivered three KBO-62 integrated avionics systems designed for Ka-62 helicopters to Kamov Design Bureau. The systems will be installed on Ka-62 prototypes and the flight testing will be started, press-service of Transas reports.
«The KBO-62 integrated avionics system allows performing a wide range of tasks in the area of navigation and piloting the helicopter. Thanks to integration between electronic display system and the ARDIDEN 3G engine’s electronic control unit (manufactured by Turbomeca), which powers Ka-62, it is easier to control engines during flight (including contingency power rating). At the same time the engine’s maintenance gets easier», - the company’s press-service explained.
According to the Director General of Transas Aviation, Vadim Smirnov, the company is “proud to take part in development of advanced Russian Ka-62 helicopter. During development of KBO-62 we used state-of-the-art technologies in order to assure a high level of flight safety, high comfort for the crew and a high level of the helicopter’s operating efficiency. The flight testing is one of the initial stages of our cooperation with Kamov and we are confident that our joint effort will result in creation of one of today’s best helicopters; this vehicle will be as good as the best foreign analogues».
