CMC Electronics (Hall A/A1109) is promoting its CMA-3000 flight and radio management system at the show after several recent contract wins.

Following sales to the Swiss army for its Super Puma Mark I fleet and to the Bavarian police and German army training divisions for the their Eurocopter EC-135 helicopters, the CMA-3000 has been specified by Eurocopter for France's Securite Civile EC-145s and for the French air force's new EC-725 Combat SAR helicopters. The CMA-3000 MKII was also selected for an international AS-332 Super Puma helicopter fleet upgrade.

Jim Close, president and chief executive of CMC Electronics says: "This is a new market for our existing CMA-3000, in which we will incorporate a MIL-STD-1553B interface bus and additional capabilities. The existing CMA-3000 already carries the pedigree of commercial FAA certification for operation in congested civilian airspace."

The CMA-3000 features a sunlight readable colour active matrix liquid crystal display that is NVG compatible. The system interfaces with the on-board navigation radios and sensors, communications radios and mission equipment such as digital moving map displays and is designed for operation in en-route, terminal and approach air traffic control environments.

The CMA-3000 Flight and Radio Management System is suitable for both fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, and for use by law enforcement or government agencies in addition to search and rescue and emergency medical services applications.

The latest contract is valued at more than $5 million, and deliveries have already begun.
