NEXT GENERATION FLIGHT TERMINATION SYSTEM
Integrated Autonomous Flight Termination Unit (IAFTU)
Sagrad is pleased to announce the next generation in flight termination systems is underway in our Melbourne, Florida facilities. The IAFTU will be a “game changer” for the Vertical Launch Platform (VLP) and for the captive carry weapons markets. The IAFTU system under development will be available early next year.
The IAFTU has a very small footprint, incorporates robust communications protocols, and integrates anti-jam/Y and M-Code GPS receiver. The Sagrad IAFTU will accept inputs from low drift IMU / external Inertial Navigation system. The IAFTU is being developed for weapons/UAS platforms but also has a direct application for commercial launch vehicles said John Rizzo, (Sr. V.P. Programs at Sagrad).
The Integrated Autonomous Flight Termination Unit provides autonomous decision-making capacity responsible for aborting a flight if any anomalies are identified.
Sagrad provides Design and Development, Manufacturing, Test and Support to the Aerospace, Defense, Communications, Transportation and Medical markets.
