WE DESIGN CRASHWORTHY
The NTSB in its July 2015 Safety Recommendation stated the following:
Between 1994 and 2013, the NTSB has investigated at least 135 accidents in the United States involving certificated helicopters of various models that resulted in a post-crash fire. Those accidents resulted in 221 fatalities and 37 serious injuries. Only three of the accident helicopters that experienced post-crash fire had crash-resistant fuel systems and crashworthy fuel tanks.
CiES Inc. supports Crashworthy Helicopter fuel tanks by folding out of the way. Metal Capacitive probes punch through the tank in a crash and deem the crashworthiness of the system void.
When you combine CiES crashworthiness capability of the CiES fuel level measurement design with:
- Intrinsically-safe non-contact fuel level measurement methodology.
- Class-leading reliability.
- Outstanding fuel quantity reporting capability.
It is a winning fuel quantity combination for any application.
