CWC-AE's MPFR delivers weight savings with combined CVR/FDR for AgustaWestland AW139s

  1. 1. Combined Cockpit Voice and Flight Data Recorder on the AW139 AW139 Multi-role Emergency Medical Executive Transport Law Enforcement Offshore Oil Opperations Search and Rescue System One of two main avionics units, outputs an ARINC 573/717 data stream to the Multi-Purpose Flight Recorder (MPFR), which acts as a combined cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder (CVR/FDR) Results 100% positive data retrieval feedback Time and money saved with fast, accessible accident data from a small, light weight recorder Customers receive easily accessible flight data
  2. 2. MPFR is standard fit on all AW139s The System All data on-board the AW139 is processed by the Honeywell Primus Epic avionics suite. One of two main avionics units, outputs an ARINC 573/717 data stream that is the input to the MPFR, which acts as a combined cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder (CVR/FDR). Over 700 parameters captured including • Those required for EUROCAE ED-55 and EDA-56A CVR/FDR compliance • Engine data • Avionics info • Install parameters • Fuel parameters MPFR records up to 20 hours of data at 512 words per second in a continuous loop Multi-Purpose Flight Recorder (MPFR) Reduce Weight and Complexity Less than 7.0lb (3.2kg) including under water locator beacon Dual purpose system for flight data and crash recording Lower Operating Costs Attaches directly to airframe Fast Ethernet data recovery Exceed data requirements Exceeds all EUROCAE ED-55 and EDA-56A compliance requirements
  3. 3. Complete data protection through rugged design The MPFR was selected because if its small size, low weight, combined CVR/FDR functionality, seamlessly integrated software and ease of use. Result I 100% positive accident data retrieval feedback from an installed base of over 500 MPFRs • Even if the device was severely damaged or submerged in water, • Never lost flight data due to memory corruption. • MPFR has never been returned to AgustaWestland due to an operational fault or suspicious activity. Marco Terzi Accident Incident Investigator AgustaWestland “
  4. 4. Applications Accident Incident Recording Flight Data Recording Result II Time and money saved with fast and accessible accident data from a small, light weight recorder Light weight, compact and easy to install • MPFR is 30% - 50% lighter than competing products • Pre-configured, install requires a single cable connection (that provides power and data)and 4 screws. • Attaches directly to airframe and small enough to fit in the tail Fast accident data retrieval • Don’t incur costs waiting for data retreival and processing post accident • Data is downloaded and processed at the crash site via a10/100MB Fast Ethernet interface to a PC using standard network hardware and protocols. Saves time and money
  5. 5. High quality data flight after flight User friendly PGS data analysis and visualization Result III Easily accessible flight data • On-board data available in under two minutes • Networked directly to a remote base for diagnostics and fault reporting. • AgustaWestland’s customers are able to collect, access, and analyze data from the first flight.
