DRF Luftrettung develops multifunctional ground plate /Optimal mount for EpiShuttles

Posted by Admin

During the Covid-19 pandemic, DRF Luftrettung acquired special isolation stretchers to transport highly infectious patients. These stretchers, known as EpiShuttles, can now be fastened perfectly in the helicopter thanks to a special ground plate developed by the EASA Part 21 Design Organisation at DRF Luftrettung. The new solution impresses with its simple handling and safety. It is referred to in the business as the Multifunction EMS Ground Plate and, with a load-bearing capacity of up to 300 kg, is currently one-of-a-kind on the market. The corresponding STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) was recently issued by the EASA, meaning that the product is now ready for series production and can also be made available to external customers.

Curtiss-Wright Selected to Provide Ultra Small Form Factor Flight Computer and Ethernet Switch for New All-Electric Air Taxi

Posted by Admin

ASHBURN, Va. – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division, a proven leading supplier of rugged ultra-small form factor (USFF) processing and networking solutions, today announced that it was awarded a contract to provide an electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft developer with a rugged avionics system and networking solutions for use on the company’s new aircraft. The fully electric fixed-wing aircraft, designed to function as a piloted urban air taxi, will use Curtiss-Wright flight control computer and vehicle Ethernet switch solutions during the flight test stage of the new aircraft’s development. Curtiss-Wright USFF electronic subsystems, which are ideal for use on size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-C) constrained airborne platforms, have previously been selected for use on multiple eVTOL development programs in addition to this most recent design win. Under the contract, Curtiss-Wright is supplying the customer with its fully rugged Parvus DuraCOR 311, a USFF embedded computer/controller based on a low-power quad-core Intel® Atom™ E3845 (Bay Trail-I) processor, and the Parvus DuraNET 20-11, a USFF 8-port Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switch. Both products are optimized for extremely demanding SWaP-C applications, such as space-constrained rotorcraft and unmanned airborne platforms, which are especially sensitive to additional weight that can limit flight duration and/or distance. The DuraCOR 311 measures less than 40 in³ in volume and weighs less than 1.5 lb, while the “pocket-sized” DuraNET 20-11 measures only 10 in3 in volume, and weighs only 0.5 lb.
