Propulsion system solutions
Optimizing the operation of helicopter propulsion systems is of major importance to engine manufacturers, the armed forces and civilian operators. With its engine control units for helicopter turbines, Safran Electronics & Defense brings you a high level of performance and reliability.
Safran Electronics & Defense's digital helicopter turbine control systems optimize the operating points of engines to offer the level of performance adapted to your needs.
These single- or dual-channel control units analyze multiple data inputs and control the fuel supply and actuators, relieving the pilot of engine management tasks. They are designed to withstand extreme conditions (extreme temperatures, vibrations, radar radiation, lightning, etc.), thus offering a high level of safety and reliability.
Combining Safran Transmission Systems expertise with Safran Electronics & Defense's know-how, ART and ART2 control units adapt to all types of turbines on civil, military and offshore helicopters. The MTR390, developed in partnership with Diehl Avionik Systeme, is designed for the MTR turbine on TIGER helicopters.
