Quantum® line is the most technologically advanced group of communication and navigation sensors on the market. Our Quantum line products provide incremental growth to meet the changing performance requirements as the industry transitions towards "free flight".
Our highly reliable navigation radios, sensors, receivers and communication equipment integrate with the automatic flight control systems, instrument systems and enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS) during approaches and landings sequences to increase cockpit efficiency and reduce maintenance and operational costs.
Key features common to all seven Quantum sensors include microprocessor/ digital signal processor technology, fault memory, liquid crystal display (LCD), personal computer (PC) memory card interface association (PCMIA) memory card interface, RS232 PC port and a built-in test equipment interface to an onboard maintenance system. In addition, the sensors are compliant with RTCA DO-160C environmental requirements (including high-intensity radiated field (HIRF) and lightning) and DO-178B software requirements.
• Reduced parts count for superior reliability
• Front-mounted LCD displays unit identification, maintenance information, and software configuration status; improves line troubleshooting and helps reduce unnecessary removals
• Software loading capability from the front of the unit via a PCMCIA for easy upgrade, insuring that Quantum sensors will not become obsolete
• More than 80 percent of hardware and software is common across the Quantum line, reducing spares holding and overall cost of ownership
