FLORHAM PARK, NJ - March 3, 2014 - Aviation Safety Resources (ASR), a pioneer in life-saving safety systems for small aircraft, today announced that it has selected Pennsylvania-based Inteprod LLC to design and fabricate the control panel for the prototype of its groundbreaking Smart Recovery System (SRS) for General Aviation Aircraft.
The SRS-1 demonstration unit will be unveiled at the 57th Annual Aircraft Electronics Association's International Convention & Trade Show in Nashville, Tenn., March 12-15, 2014. The event is the platform of choice for introducing new avionics products.
Inteprod is an ISO 13485 certified and FDA registered contract manufacturer with 30 years of creative experience and knowledge in the design and development of lifesaving and life changing medical products. Working closely with the ASR team and software developers at Springton Technologies, Inteprod will design and fabricate the SRS-1 Control Panel using its in-house rapid prototyping system.
"Inteprod's experience in developing and manufacturing complex, high technology devices within highly regulated industries makes it a perfect partner for avionics companies that require equally stringent quality control and regulatory compliance," said Dario P. Manfredi, ASR founder and president. "They have a proven quality system and the infrastructure required to meet the FAA's stringent quality and performance standards. Better yet, they know what it takes to bring complex technologies to market."
The SRS-1 is the first of three patented ASR safety systems. It continuously monitors aircraft operation for potentially unsafe conditions. When a potential hazard is detected, it provides a clear audible alert to the pilot designating the corrective action needed to bring the aircraft back into a safe flight envelope. By providing a "second pair of eyes," the SRS-1 can reduce pilot workload and insure that potential hazards are known as soon as they occur. Designed to fit easily into the radio stack of a variety of new or existing cockpits, the SRS-1 will integrate with an aircraft's existing sensing systems.
"Today's automated cockpit assistance systems present more data in larger displays, but a pilot must look at the displays, assess the data and make a decision," Manfredi said. "All of this new visual data can distract a pilot from the basic hazards. Our technology will add a much-needed audio component to situational awareness. In a hazardous situation, ASR's SRS-1 literally tells the pilot what the data means."
The SRS-1 demonstration unit will address the five most common causes of accidents spotlighted in NTSB safety videos released last summer.
"Like ASR, Inteprod is passionate about developing innovative, high quality systems that save lives and make a difference," said Rick Smethers, CEO of Inteprod. "We are very excited to bring our creative experience, knowledge, and proven quality system to ASR, and look forward to additional opportunities to provide our comprehensive engineering and manufacturing expertise and high quality standards to the Aviation industry."
