Innovative Solutions & Support (NASDAQ: ISSC) has signed agreements to supply the recently certified ThrustSense® auto-throttle as standard equipment on new aircraft production. This patented automatic thrust control system provides a revolutionary improvement in flight safety, reduced pilot workload and a major improvement in engine protection.
Another patented safety feature is the recent FAA certified, VMCa protection against loss of control. If an aircraft’s engine fails and the aircraft’s airspeed falls below its minimum control speed (VMCa), the aircraft can experience a loss of control. However, aircraft equipped with the ThrustSense® system can dynamically adjust the power on the remaining engine to assist the crew in maintaining safe control of the aircraft.
ThrustSense® manages engine power through all phases of flight, while assisting in protecting the engine against costly damage. The system controls power to help prevent over temperature and operation at excessive power levels. ThrustSense® helps reduce flight crew workload during all phases of flight by automatically managing the power from takeoff roll through climb, cruise, descent and landing approach phases. The system also assists in monitoring and protecting against over-speed damage and under-speed stall.
Retrofit installations for all cockpit configurations will be offered through the IS&S authorized dealer network.
