PARIS, June 2015. UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX), is exhibiting a range of aerospace capabilities during the International Paris Air Show, including in-flight health monitoring and automated flight tracking in its Aircraft Data Management (ADM) suite.
The new system can integrate with a variety of communications providers selected by the customer, regardless of the communications channel, SATCOM, or standard ACARS. The system is based on the UTC Aerospace Systems ADM Aircraft Interface Device (AID), certified on multiple aircraft platforms.
UTC Aerospace Systems is also displaying its commercial and military aircraft wheel and brake capabilities, which utilize advanced materials. On display is the company's Airbus A350-900 wheel and brake system, which is the first certified for this aircraft and features the HTx oxidation protection system for providing improved thermal oxidation protection and resistance to damaging runway deicer materials. Also on display is the Lockheed Martin C-130 lock ring wheel and brake system, available as a retrofit option to C-130 operators worldwide and providing an eight-fold increase in brake life and reduced cooling time with the help of a carbon heat sink, officials say.
Additionally, the UTC Aerospace Systems exhibit will showcase the ACES 5™ ejection seat, featuring unmatched head and neck protection for the entire range of male and female pilot classes. The modular design of the ACES 5 also reduces the time required for seat related maintenance as it eliminates the need to remove the canopy or hatch thereby increasing aircraft availability.
Products also featured in the UTC Aerospace Systems exhibit include the company's ram air turbine and variable frequency power generation capabilities, cockpit controls, flight control actuation, lighting systems, drive shafts and couplings, SmartProbe air data systems, and rescue hoists.
