Genesys Aerosystems is offering an avionics UPGRADE AND MODERNIZATION program to provide the UH-1 / SW204 / SW205 / SW205T and 412HP helicopters with state-of-the-art digital avionics for primary flight, navigation, engine/systems displays, solid state sensors, and integrated SBAS GPS navigation. The IDU-680 Avionics Suite is a complete flight and navigation system designed to seamlessly integrate into the aircraft's existing systems. The screen displays include three-dimensional, enhanced situational awareness Primary Flight Information and Multi-Function displays. Multi-Function display can be configured to show a moving map, an HSI, traffic, terrain, hover vector, weather, radio/audio control, video input, or engine displays.

The Level A certified IDU-680 EFIS utilizes ADAHRS and GPS SBAS data for precision aircraft operation including RNP and LPV approaches, and Genesys’ patented OASIS (Open Architecture System Integration Symbology) to display engine information and CAS messages. The system also integrates with select radios and weather radar and offers expansion ports supporting a path for future growth. The STC meets all IFR regulations, increasing the mission capabilities, dispatch ability, and usefulness of the aircraft. Additionally, the IDU-680 comes standard with:

  • 3D Synthetic Vision
  • Highway-In-The-Sky (HITS) navigation
  • Geo-referenced Hover Vector
  • Helicopter TAWS (HTAWS)
  • Graphical Flight Management System (FMS)
  • Digital flight recorder
  • NVIS compatibility
  • MIL-STD qualification
  • Search and Rescue patterns
  • And more

The IDU-680 can be customized (and other) airframes using the Genesys OASIS. OASIS allows low-cost integration of aircraft systems and allows for centralized EICAS (Engine Indication and Crew Alerting System) messages, simplifying the instrument scan and reducing workload in critical phases of flight.
