Vertical Reference Systems
Accurate, dependable vertical reference
Engineered to outperform and outlast conventional spinning-mass vertical gyroscopes, the L3 family of vertical reference systems reduces costly mechanical repairs while providing superior reliability. With software that is qualified to DO-178B Level A, the VRS-3000, VRS-3010 and VRS-4000 are designed to drive primary and secondary flight displays, as well as flight controls (autopilot). And with their multiple output formats, they are compatible with both analog and solid-state attitude indicators.
Vertical Reference Systems family provide:
- Solid-state performance
- More reliable operation than mechanical systems
- Compatibility with manned and unmanned aircraft and watercraft
Designed for 115 VAC platforms, the VRS-3000 replaces gyroscopes such as the SBU-23 and MD-1, utilizing solid-state rate and level sensor technology to provide accurate attitude and rate measurements. When paired with an Air Data Computer, the VRS-3000 is capable of providing attitude, altitude, airspeed, vertical speed and slip/skid information.
The VRS-3010 is designed to outperform the aging, old school SBU-23/MD1 gyros to meet the needs of today’s military pilots. With software that is qualified to DO-178B Level A, the VRS-3010 is designed to drive primary and secondary flight displays, as well as flight controls (autopilot).
In today’s increasingly sophisticated air and sea activities, it’s critical to have reliable reference information at your fingertips when you need it. Whether the application is a rotary- or fixed-wing aircraft, Unmanned Aircraft Systems or watercraft, the VRS-4000’s certification to RTCA DO-160D environmentals assures operators they can get the job done.
