Input/output and interface controllers

GE Aerospace’s configurable controls and interface systems are required for today's modular and simplified vehicle system architectures. This product family is comprised of flexible remote interfacing products tailored to meet a range of applications - from distributed Input/Output (I/O) management to actuation control. Remote Interface Units (RIUs) provide a family of low cost, line replaceable items or sub-modules which are designed to be installed in remote locations, away from the main aircraft processing resource but near air-vehicle subsystem(s).

  • Provides the interface between a variety of subsystem sensors and the main computing resource (sometimes referred to as data concentration or remote data concentrations) via a system data bus, such as ARINC 429 or MIL-STD-1553B.
  • Provides autonomous local closed loop control
  • Utilized between third party units without compatible interfaces to provide a “translation” function.

Inertial and Alternative Navigation
GE Aerospace offers a variety of technologies that enable precision location and timing information independent of traditional RF signal-based solutions, thereby enabling customers to operate safely and reliably in an assortment of inhospitable environments. The cornerstone of GE Aerospace’s offering is the Inertial Reference Units (IRU), offering navigation-grade inertial performance for more than 20+ years. The IRU is most often utilized for platform navigation, system stabilization, and pointing applications.  A lower SWaP alternative to the IRU, GE Aerospace has developed a MEMS-based IRU that offers high-end tactical grade performance in a 16 cubic inch footprint.  In addition to inertial products, this includes two alternate navigation products. The first is commonly referred to as assured or alternate positioning, navigation and timing (APNT). This APNT solution is software based and its strict adherence to MOSA enables it to be easily integrated with likewise-conformant navigation, computing and sensors on existing platforms. This concept provides customers maximum flexibility to design an APNT system that offers exactly what they need and nothing extra.
Finally, GE Aerospace offers a precision landing system for landing capability in degraded visual or dense urban environments.
