By Avalex Technologies Posted February 9, 2018 In Press
Avalex officially partnered with ACE Aeronautics of Huntsville, AL, and Garmin International to solve a significant obsolescence problem for the Austrian Air Force. Austria’s fleet of nine S-70A-42 Black Hawk helicopters are aging (they’ve been around since 2002) and needed to comply with the Single European Sky initiative to standardize and futureproof air traffic management across Europe. The solution to Austria’s problem is based on ACE’s ACE DECK helicopter cockpit avionics upgrade kit developed in concert with Avalex and Garmin. The $40 million contract undertaken between Austria and GAS is for the design, production, integration and testing. The Garmin G5000H Integrated Flight Deck, designed to satisfy global airspace modernization efforts like Single European Sky, will supply civil navigation and flight management functions in the upgraded cockpits. Avalex’s rugged, battlefield-tested, qualified mission avionics, including ACM9454 cockpit management units, mission processors running Avalex Mission Mapping software, and AVC1816 Smart Video Management will supply military capabilities including tactical mapping, mission planning, and the integration of tactical systems including radios from multiple vendors, an upgraded Search and Rescue direction finder, inertial navigation and Scorpion® helmet mounted displays. According to GAS CEO Darrell Kindley, “this avionics modernization program will keep the Austrian Black Hawks supportable for another 20 years.”

Huntsville-based Ace Aeronautics, which does business as Global Aviation Solutions (GAS), has about 50 employees and plans to add another 25 to 50 positions at its Alabama location over the next two years.
As it ramps up in Guntersville, GAS has landed a major piece of new business. Earlier this month, the company was awarded a contract worth more than $40 million by the Republic of Austria Ministry of Defense to upgrade its fleet of Black Hawk helicopters.
The contract covers the design, manufacture, installation and testing of new avionic systems for nine Austrian S-70A-42 Black Hawk helicopters, said Darrell Kindley, the company’s president and CEO.
“GAS is pleased to provide the Austrian Air Force with our Garmin 5000H-based avionics upgrade kit called the ACEHAWK,” he said.
