Connect & Control
A special mission aircraft is not unique because of one system or component, but more importantly, how all the systems and components correctly integrate and interconnect to perform as a single unit.
Airborne LINX is the over-arching system that unites each complex piece of equipment on board an aircraft into an easy-to-operate workplace in the sky.
An in-house designed software package is the heart of the system and controls all mission relevant sensors and components.
INSTALLATION YOUR WAY
Depending on your mission needs, Airborne LINX provides the flexibility you deserve. Airborne LINX is not a singular deliverable product but a total personalized systems solution that fits your mission. In addition, Airborne LINX provides you the means to choose a fixed or flexible installation.
If you need a fully integrated hard-wire fix, Airborne LINX can be fully integrated with the airframe, making your mission aircraft a 24/7 focus system. Our innovative components that make your aircraft mission-ready are:
- Internal & External Lifting Devices
- Carbon Fibre Brackets
- Customized Sensor Hatches
- Specialized Carbon Fiber Domes
If you need a flexible solution that provides your mission with multiple options, Airborne LINX also provides mission systems that can easily attach on & off your aircraft anytime. Our carbon fibre SCAR-Pods house the sensor equipment and can be mounted within a short time.
The LINX Software, controlling all relevant sensors and components of the system, runs on a special inhouse designed mission computer. It manages all the pieces but stays in the background.
Many off-the-shelf solutions do not fulfill the precise requirements of Special Mission Computers. Therefore, we have designed a specialized computing unit with high-quality components tailored to advanced multisensor airborne surveillance needs. The unique features of the Mission Computer include the following:
- Full range of operating temperatures
- DO160 tested (vibration, temperature, humidity, ...)
- Extended Computing power
- Video recording
- Universal connectors
- Forced cooling for hot environment
The Human Machine Interface is the Mission Management Unit (MMU), allowing the operator to control the entire LINX architecture on a simple-to-use touchscreen. Embedded either in an ergonomic workstation or on a tablet, the MMU leads the field in simplifying the management of any combination of sensors.
Over many years we have gained a deep knowledge of how to integrate & modify special mission aircraft. Out of this linked experience and with our independent Mission Management Unit (MMU), our LINX system provides a complete system architecture that allows all devices to work perfectly together.
The LINX system architecture supports products for fixed and rotary wing aircraft along with the special mission sensors & systems that make a special mission aircraft a genuinely effective platform.
