L-3 Lands Army order for standby units
L-3 Avionics is at Booth No. 2526 demonstrating the GH-3001 electronic standby primary flight display, which the U.S. Army’s Redstone Arsenal has ordered for the CH-47F Improved Cargo Helicopter fleet program. The open-ended contract valued at approximately $9.2 million will run through early 2013. Planned as standard equipment on the CH-47F panel, the three-inch GH-3001 standby indicator displays attitude, heading and air data parameters along with GPS, flight management and radio navigation information in a format similar to a customary primary display.
