BAE Systems’ Active Inceptors Earn Certification on Gulfstream G600 and G500

Share

BAE Systems reached a critical milestone today with the certification of its active inceptors for Gulfstream’s G600 and G500 aircraft. The certifications are from the Federal Aviation Administration for the G600 aircraft and European Aviation Safety Agency for the G500 aircraft. The achievement marks the second series of certifications for BAE Systems’ active sticks in civil applications, which were first certified on Gulfstream’s G500 aircraft last year.

“Our active inceptors will provide pilots of these aircraft with increased situational awareness and enable enhanced handling to maintain a safe and stable flight of Gulfstream’s G500 and G600 aircraft,” said Ehtisham Siddiqui, vice president and general manager of Controls & Avionics Solutions at BAE Systems.

Unlike a passive system, active inceptors, which are part of the controls pilots use to fly an aircraft, have electronically controlled actuators that send tactile feedback to the pilot through the stick. The feedback is programmable for specific aircraft depending on customer requirements, and can warn pilots of impending structural or aerodynamic operating limits. One of the key benefits of active inceptors is the ability to link the pilot and co-pilot controls, so each can see and feel the other’s control inputs in real time.

BAE Systems has been a world leader in active inceptor technology for more than 25 years. The military version of the technology was originally developed for the Joint Strike Fighter program in the 1990s, achieving its first flight on the platform in 2000 and becoming the world’s first certified military active inceptor on the F-35 just six years later. That same core technology achieved a handful of other world firsts, which includes first flight on helicopters such as Blackhawk and Chinook. Today, the company’s active inceptors have flown on 12 different commercial and military aircraft around the world and have logged more than 200,000 flight hours.

BAE Systems is a premier provider of advanced and affordable controls, avionics, and power management systems for aircraft. From controlling the aircraft to keeping its engine running at peak performance, BAE Systems serves more than two million passengers each day. Every second of every day a plane safely takes off and lands because of its products.

Dole Unveils Integrated Strategy Against Banana Disease31.7.2020 20:32:00 EESTPress release

Dole Food Company today shared the company’s most recent update on its efforts to combat Fusarium Tropical Race 4 (TR4), a plant disease that poses an existential threat to bananas, a major staple crop for much of the world. Since the discovery of TR4 in northern Colombia one year ago, Dole swiftly ramped-up its TR4 response plan, implementing site-specific TR4 prevention activities throughout Latin America in coordination with local authorities and international experts to contain and prevent spread. A three-year containment program was immediately implemented in 2019 to ensure biosecurity protocols in every Dole banana farm, as well as those of Dole’s independent suppliers. Those protocols build upon best practices implemented in the banana producing countries where the disease has been successfully contained and are continually reviewed and strengthened per site—based upon the farm layout and location—to maximize the effectiveness of the risk-based mitigation plan. Dole also continu
