AUSTIN, Texas, July 29, 2014
– DAC International, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that it has received Parts Manufacturer Approval and Supplemental Type Certificate Approval on its Digital to Analog Converter and Airborne Data Link Processor, and Type Certificate approval of its ARINC-to-NMEA 183 converter.

The Digital to Analog Converter is approved to design assurance level A. This solid state product is the link between a system which provides pitch, roll, heading and other critical signals to existing aircraft equipment including pilot and copilot primary flight displays, the autopilot and other on-board systems; The Airborne Data Link Processor is approved to design assurance level C. This product gathers signals in a myriad of formats from existing aircraft systems then translates it all into a single format understood by aircraft’s existing transponder thereby providing it all the data necessary for Enhanced Mode-S and ADS-B operation in European airspace; and the third approval is for the ARINC-to-NMEA 183 Converter which is approved to design assurance level D. This product delivers GPS location information to the aircraft’s Emergency Locator Transmitter. With the combination of this ECD product and the latest ELT technology, operators and passengers will have the assurance that, when needed, the ELT will perform at peak accuracy.

“Our Engineering and Certification division has been working in partnership with multiple Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) groups to accomplish these certifications,” said General Manager of DAC International Cisco Hernandez. “These products are a testament of our commitment to provide forward thinking and innovative technology solutions to our customers.”
