Safran Electronics & Defense's modular and innovative autopilot systems and computers are easy to install and use.
Safran offers solutions meeting the specific needs of each customer: single-axis stability augmentation systems (SAS) and 2, 3 and 4-axis autopilot systems integrating upper and specific modes.
Basic stabilization computers: stabilization on the carrier's 3 axes (pitch, roll, yaw) in a short-term damping mode.
Autopilot computers (AP): long-term stabilization, as well as basic pilot modes (heading, altitude and airspeed hold).
Upper and specific modes associated with the carrier's specific sensors: search and rescue patterns over the sea, Doppler hover hold, radio altimeter altitude hold, VOR/ILS, go around, etc. 

Integrated Cockpit Display Systems (ICDS)

ICDS display all the information required for managing the aircraft in real-time and in the safest conditions. Compact and lightweight, Safran Electronics & Defense ICDS offer better situational awareness and significantly reduce the pilot's workload. Available in 6-, 8- or 10-inch versions, in landscape or portrait mode, they can be adapted to all helicopter cockpit panels, completely replacing conventional instruments. ICDS exists in PFD & MFD/EMS.
