HATC / Helicopter Tracking Device

-A +A

HATC has internal and external crash sensors for automatic emergency notification. The device also has a manual emergency feedback button. Furthermore, LED warning indicators provide feedback regarding the emergency situation and device self-test results. HATC is powered from 28VDC power supply located in the air vehicle. In case of a power loss, there is an internal battery which allows the device to operate for a minimum of 30 minutes. The battery is regularly charged by a smart charging unit. The power loss during the flight is evaluated as emergency and reported to the Helicopter Tracking Center.

HATC is the vehicle mounted part of the Helicopter Tracking System. The device gets the location, speed and altitude data from the air vehicle sensors and sends these data to the Helicopter Tracking Center through GSM and LEO Satellite communication interfaces. HATC, which was developed with the General Directorate of State Airports Authority (DHMİ), HATC, also brings availability to make push to talk based voice communication through GPRS network.

HATC is a EASA certified equipment under STC 10045303.
