Military Avionics Data Keyboard


We have been awarded the US Navy’s coveted Flight Hardware Certification for the development and production of electronic avionics keyboards for the T-45C Goshawk Trainer Aircraft. This avionics keyboard uses patented solid state switch technology that can predict degradation and failure before the failure occurs, making this keyboard the first intelligent and failure predictive keyboard used in a military application.
