LITEF provides AHRS for Sikorsky S-76D
Northrop Grumman LITEF is supplying the LCR-100 attitude and heading reference system (AHRS) for Sikorsky's new S-76D helicopter, which recently received Type Certification from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration.
The LCR-100 is a standard component of the Thales TopDeck avionics suite on the new medium-sized, twin-engine helicopter. Northrop Grumman provided both the LCR-92 and LCR-100 fibre-optic AHRS on earlier versions of the S-76 helicopter platform.
Developed by Northrop Grumman's navigation and positioning systems subsidiary in Germany, Northrop Grumman LITEF, the LCR-100 provides critical flight information regarding the aircraft's position, heading and attitude. The LCR-100 offers precise outputs to the flight control system and has demonstrated high reliability and accuracy in the helicopter environment.
