Northrop Grumman to provide AHRS for Israeli M-346
Northrop Grumman will provide the Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) for the Israel Ministry of Defense's (MoD’s) M-346 advanced trainer aircraft fleet, following its selection by prime contractor Alenia Aermacchi.
Northrop Grumman Italia has been a supplier for the M-346 programme for the last five years, and was awarded a new contract the builds on this experience. Under this agreement, the company will deliver the LISA-200 AHRS for the lead-in fighter trainer.
The LISA-200 AHRS is based on accurate and reliable fibre-optic gyro technology, and incorporates advanced features such as a high-speed data refresh rate and output to fulfill the stringent requirements of a fly-by-wire quadruple-redundant control system.
Marco Clochiatti, managing director and general manager of Northrop Grumman Italia, said: ‘The LISA-200 is ideally suited to meet the rigorous standards set by the M-346, which is one of the world's most modern and advanced jet trainer systems. This award builds on prior collaboration with Alenia Aermacchi through programmes such as the Eurofighter and exemplifies Northrop Grumman's navigation leadership in international markets.’
