Global Helicopter Avionics Market 2016-2020

About Helicopter Avionics

The word avionics is a combination of aviation and electronics. Both the fixed-wing aircraft and rotorcraft highly depend on avionic systems, which consists of electromechanical elements and electronic devices for their operations. For instance, the fly-by-wire control system depends on digital computers for its performance. The avionic systems include equipment for communication, cockpit display, control and monitoring, and navigation and other electromechanical systems. The growing number of innovations in technology have also raised the demand for modern avionics as they offer improved reliability and enhanced functioning. Avionic systems provide pilots with critical data such as aircraft altitude, airstream incidence, and air speed with the help of air data sensors, accelerometers, pilots control stick sensor assembly, rate gyros, and other systems.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global helicopter avionics market to grow at a CAGR of 9.61% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Helicopter Avionics Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global helicopter avionics market: Aspen Avionics, Garmin, Honeywell Aerospace, Rockwell Collins, and Thales

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Avidyne, ForeFlight, L-3 Avionics Systems, Symbolic Flight, and ZG Optique

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Rockwell Collins and Honeywell Aerospace have developed an advanced cockpit technology to deal with the challenges faced by rotary-wing military aircraft that operates in low-visibility environments. The system uses a sensor-impartial approach and consists of multiple sensors and databases to create a synthetic 3D environment for pilots. It enables the pilot to look at a synthetic environment of obstacles and helps the aircraft land safely.”

According to the report, NASA is currently working on broadening the use of Auto-GCAS for low-altitude general aviation aircraft to prevent terrain collisions. This system has also been developed for helicopters. In 2011, Sandal Avionics developed a similar system called HeliTAWS Terrain Awareness and Safety System and Garmin developed a system called HTWAS. These systems also help in guiding helicopter pilots without the need of user-defined waypoint.

Further, the report states that dependence on automation provides ease of operations during long flights by relieving pilots from the task of continuously controlling the aircraft. An increase in the demand for automation has resulted in reduced pilot participation during crucial periods of flight, such as landing and takeoff phases. However, overdependence on automated flight controls can be harmful to the pilots as it can make them lose the situational awareness and lead to problems in terms of safety. It can also make them incapable of mastering the latest changes in the autopilot systems, which can be dangerous for the passengers.
