Esterline CMC Electronics’ CMA-9000 flight management system (FMS) and CMA-5024 GPS landing system have been selected by RUAG Aviation for the modernisation programme of the Swiss Air Force’s Cougar helicopters, the company announced on 4 March.

The company will supply the latest version of the CMA-9000 software for the upgrade. The CMA-9000 provides flight management and multi-sensor navigation throughout all phases of flight, and radio management to help reduce pilot workload. Its night vision goggle capability enables night-time operations for police, SAR and emergency medical service operators.

The CMA-9000 supports both military and civil navigation modes, with compliance to the latest standards for Required Navigation Performance and Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) approaches.

The CMA-5024 GPS landing system sensor meets the requirements for instrument flight rules and civil certified global navigation satellite system. Its wide-area augmentation system and SBAS GPS capability provide an accurate navigation solution that supports all flight operations.

The Cougars are used for transport as well as SAR operations in Swiss service.
