High-Reliability Sensors for All Environments

AAC current and voltage sensors have been used on numerous aircraft and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) programs since the mid-1960s. AAC has extensive knowledge and decades of experience in designing and manufacturing sensors, transducers and detectors. These sensors are capable of providing high reliability in harsh remote environments. For over fifty years AAC has been the market leader in quality and innovation.

Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk

AAC engineers worked extensively with Boeing/Vertol to design and develop custom sensors for most variants of the CH-47 Chinook. Sikorsky also called upon AAC to create components for the Black Hawk family of helicopters. Subsequently, AAC worked with Northup-Grumman to develop sensors for the MQ-8 Fire Scout and the RQ-4 Global Hawk UAV programs.

 

AAC is trusted by all the major aerospace and defense manufacturers and integrators including NASA, Lockheed-Martin, Honeywell, Northrop-Grumman and Boeing. In fact, we have been awarded the Boeing Supplier Performance Excellence Award in each of the past six years.

AAC Current and Voltage Sensors are used by aircraft manufacturers to measure power consumption in various elements of the aircraft. Such diverse applications as indicating if power is being supplied to pitot tubes and windshield defrosting/de-icing mechanisms to measuring the current used by transport aircraft galley heating elements and much more.

AS9100 Certified

The essence of AS9100 is embodied in the AAC culture with the focus for continuous improvement. This culture not only sustains reliability but uses new technologies to meet new environmental challenges posed by military standards as well as DO-160 commercial standards. The engineering and manufacturing capabilities are constantly being reviewed and updated where necessary to meet customer performance and reliability needs.

American Aerospace Controls’ current and voltage sensors can be found on spacecraft, rotorcraft and fixed wing platforms in the defense and commercial markets. These platforms are used worldwide and placed into service in harsh remote environmental conditions where serviceability is not a practical option. This is where reliability can not be mitigated and AAC steps forward with the capability to successfully meet these challenges.
