OAK CREEK, Wis. -- Astronautics Corporation of America’s AFI4700 RoadRunner Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS) was delivered to Santa Barbara County Sheriff-Fire Air Support Unit (ASU) recently when they accepted their first retrofitted Sikorsky HH-60L helicopter from Arista Aviation, located in Enterprise, Alabama.

The RoadRunner EFIS is the cornerstone of an upgraded, state-of-the-art avionics package and instrument panel on the HH-60L Black Hawk Arista Aviation repurposed into a "Firehawk" aerial firefighting configuration for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff-Fire ASU.

The RoadRunner EFI is a cost-effective, form-fit manufacturer’s avionics upgrade from existing attitude director and horizontal situation indicator functionality to a modern EFIS with certified Level-A software made for Part 29 helicopters and providing a path to Federal Aviation Administration certification. The EFIS interfaces seamlessly with modern digital navigation, enabling the Firehawk to fly firefighting and other missions with enhanced situational awareness, navigation, and sensor interface for safety and reliability.

The RoadRunner EFI also provides operators readability in all lighting conditions, familiar and easy-to-use controls, reduced operating and maintenance costs, and minimal downtime for installation. The system is upgradeable with field-loadable software to incorporate future upgrades such as synthetic vision. Astronautics has been supporting the UH-60 Black Hawk with primary flight instruments for decades, including attitude director, horizontal and vertical situation indicators, and command situation processors.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - The United States Air Force has awarded Applied Technology Associates a prototype development award worth $17.6 million for the development of the company's LOCUST counter unmanned aircraft system (UAS) solution.

LOCUST is a ground-based Directed Energy Weapon (DEW) prototype for fixed-site Air Force Air Defense. LOCUST is designed for defense against both group 1 and group 2 UAS threats. The allocated funds granted by the Air Force will be used for accelerating the development, assembly, and testing of a prototype DEW. The development of this prototype is divided into two phases, with Phase 2 being an option. Phase 1 consists of design, assembly, and contractor testing.

The work will be done at Applied Technology Associates' home base in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The completion date for the prototype is September 10, 2021.

"ATA is eager to utilize our extensive heritage in Acquisition, Tracking, and Pointing applied to directed energy systems," said Larry Lloyd, ATA’s Vice President for Business Development. "We look forward to building upon our LOCUST counter-UAS product portfolio with this key prototype project."
