IAC : 09 May, 2007  (Company News)
IAC to Supply Revolutionary Health and Usage Monitoring Systems for Tactical Unmanned Aircraft System (TUAS)
Intelligent Automation Corporation (IAC), a proven leader in aircraft Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS), has been awarded a production contract for ten IAC 1474 SuperHUMS(TM) for the U.S. Army's RQ-7B Shadow 200 Tactical Unmanned Aircraft Systems (TUAS). The award, in conjunction with the U.S. Army's Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering Center Prototype Integration Facility and Joint Venture Yulista and SES (JVYS), was made by the U.S. Army's Aviation and Missile Command Redstone Arsenal.

IAC will manufacture and field the IAC 1474 SuperHUMS(TM), a patent pending, field programmable, gate array-based (FPGA), reconfigurable computing technology at their Poway, California facility. As the largest supplier of condition based maintenance (CBM) HUMS technology to the U.S. Army, IAC expects that its breakthrough technology will help reduce maintenance, support, and turnaround time by directly linking aircraft health status to ground maintenance personnel.

According to IAC Chief Executive Officer Jeff Goodrich, 'There is unprecedented demand for our HUMS and CBM technology and this additional Army order is an expression of the confidence that our customers have in our health and usage monitoring systems,' he said.

IAC's SuperHUMS(TM) is a landmark advancement in HUMS technology featuring faster than real time processing using the latest Virtex4 FPGA (field programmable gate arrays) and XTremeDSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology from XILINX Corporation. SuperHUMS(TM) is based on the highly successful, combat proven IAC 1209 Modern Signal Processing Unit (MSPU) selected by Bell Helicopter, Boeing, and the U.S. Army as their Helicopter Health and Usage Monitoring System (HUMS).
