L-3 Smartdeck receives FAA certification with MEMSCAP TP3100 transducers

June 23, 2008 L-3 Communications Avionics Systems has received Technical Standard Order (TSO) authorization and Supplemental Type Certification (STC) from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for its SmartDeck Integrated Flight Controls and Display System, which uses the TP3100 high-performance transducers from a MEMS technology solution provider.
Both standard and customized versions of MEMSCAP TP 3100 pressure module transducers in both absolute and differential configurations are installed on the SmartDeck system. The modular TP3100 digital output transducers are designed specifically for the self contained primary instrument system which fully integrates the aircraft airspeed and altitude flight avionics and display equipment for general aviation piston and light jet aircraft.
The STC was awarded for the Cirrus Design SR22 G2 model and enables L-3 Avionics to offer the STC through authorized dealers for retrofit. Designed to boost pilot confidence and create a safe, simple and easy-to-control cockpit environment, SmartDeck integrates a number of advanced situational awareness technologies with a user interface that allows pilots to access flight information in “three clicks or less.” The company state3s that it is the only system in the light aircraft market to include a dedicated display for flight plan management and communication as part of its standard configuration. This third display, known as the Center Console Unit (CCU), is a 4 x 5.25 inch display developed by L-3 Display Systems that frees up space on the multi-function display (MFD) and enables pilots to continue monitoring a flight while obtaining airport or flight plan information.
MEMSCAP is the exclusive provider of pressure sensing technology for SmartDeck.
