Sep 22, 2016
GVH Aerospace and Thommen Aircraft Equipment AG announce the achievement of EASA STC 10059232 for the HSL-1600 high performance helicopter searchlight with integrated infrared capability. This STC is approved on all variants of the H135/EC135, including EC135P1/P2/P2+, EC135T1/T2/T2+, and the EC635P2+/T1/T2+.
The HSL-1600 high performance helicopter searchlight is a fully integrated searchlight with self-contained electronics, providing an easy means of installation and significant weight savings compared to traditional helicopter searchlights. The optional infrared illuminator provides excellent long-range IR performance with no speed restrictions on IR transition.
The HSL-1600 searchlight can be integrated with FLIR, moving maps and other mission equipment to provide a fully integrated slaving capability without the need for external components. For enhanced operational capability, the HSL-1600 can be equipped with up to three hand-held controllers with priority switching, laser pointers and integrated NVG filters.
The achievement of the STC marks the completion of the turn-key design, installation and flight trials and certification project performed by GVH Aerospace using G-NSYS, the H135T1 systems development and trials helicopter owned by its sister company Nova Systems UK. The certification flight trials were carried out under GVH Aerospace’ Flight Test Operations Manual, using the EASA Category 1 test pilots from Nova Systems UK.
