Ground Proximity Warning System™
Aviation safety is critical because it helps prevent accidents and incidents resulting in loss of life, property damage, and financial losses. Air travel involves many components, and ensuring safety requires continuous attention to detail and risk management.
The Ground Proximity Warning System™ is a safety system that provides pilots with audible and visual warnings when the aircraft is in danger of flying too low and colliding with the ground. It is especially beneficial on General Aviation (GA) aircraft, which are typically smaller and less complex than commercial airliners.
PRODUCT FEATURES & BENEFITS
- Enhanced Safety
- Increase Situational Awareness
- Improve Decision-Making
- Reduced Workload
The Ground Proximity Warning System™ is a safety instrument intended for general aviation aircraft. The system measures the aircraft’s altitude from a landing strip, 3 meters from the strip. The warning system generates an audible series of clicks within the cockpit to indicate the altitude to a pilot. A higher click frequency indicates a lower altitude.
The Ground Proximity Warning System™ comprises a trigger circuit, a selection circuit, a pulse generator, a detector circuit, a dividing circuit, a buffer, and a cockpit speaker, which are all electrically interconnected.
Materials needed to produce the Ground Proximity Warning System™:
- Sensors/Pulse Generators
- Pilot Control Switch and Speaker
- Wiring to connect sensors and Control/Speaker
- Circuit Board
The Ground Proximity Warning System™ is covered by United States Utility Patent: 10,766,634
