Safran Electronics & Defense is experts in automated engine control systems and offer highly reliable and safe solutions for propulsion systems. The 4 generations of FADEC units developed by Safran have contributed to optimizing the engine performance of a great deal of civil aircraft.
Safran Electronics & Defense supports you all the way from design and commissioning to certification and maintenance by offering innovative, high performance propulsion system solutions to meet all your requirements.
Safran's Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) units help engine manufacturers optimize the operating points of their propulsion systems to improve performance. These autonomous multi-sensor computers analyze multiple data inputs and control the fuel supply and actuators, relieving the pilot of engine management tasks.
Developed jointly by Safran and BAE Systems through the joint venture FADEC International, FADEC computers are designed to withstand the harshest environments: extremes of temperature, vibration, radar radiation, lightning, etc. With each new generation, Safran's engine control units incorporate the latest technological advances in propulsion systems. Thus the FADEC 4 designed for LEAP engines, integrates onboard maintenance and diagnostic functions (health monitoring).
Featured in all types of civil aircraft engines, Safran's engine control units have amassed over 200 million flight hours in over 10,000 commercial aircraft.
