AirMap Partners with Raytheon for Airspace Management 

 
 
 

Airspace management is a complex system of sophisticated technology, software, and skilled operators and administrators. This is why AirMap, a company developing an unmanned aircraft system traffic management, signed a strategic agreement with Raytheon. With decades of experience in building traditional ATM systems for manned aircraft in the United States, Raytheon will help AirMap with future projects to safely integrate UAS into the national airspace system.

Read more about the partnership here, including details on each company’s contributions to advancing safe and effective airspace management, as well as immediate goals for the new collaboration.

Learn more about the AirMap/Raytheon partnership and other ATM and UTM developments at Commercial UAV Expo Americas, October 28-30, 2019 at The Westgate in Las Vegas.

Sensenich at Oshkosh 2019 

Sensenich To Introduce Several New Props,
for 65 to 220hp, STOL to 200 kts

 
 
Thoroughly tested to ASTM standards and in flight, new carbon adjustable pitch props fill specific needs.
 
Plant City, FL July 20, 2019Sensenich Propeller will mark Oshkosh this year with not one, but several new adjustable-pitch carbon props, in horsepower ranges from 65 to 220, for LSA through popular kit-based designs that fly as fast as 200 knots.
 
New propellers, designed for their specific performance applications:
  • new 3-blade propeller for RVs that joins the already successful 2-blade RV-type prop.
  • This 3-blade “RV” propeller will be featured on a Thorpe T-18 located at the Brown Arch during Airventure 2019. 50 year homecoming: This aircraft was built in 1967 and flown to the first Oshkosh gathering 50 years ago and is returning to the 50th Oshkosh gathering piloted by the same pilot!
  • A new 2-blade propeller, designed and tested for aircraft in the 125 to 180 mph speed range, which will shortly be joined by a 3-blade propeller for the same type aircraft.
  • A new 2-blade 82” STOL type propeller heralding development of the upcoming
    3-blade 78” diameter prop.
  • And new 74” and 76” diameter propellers for lower horsepower applications from
    65hp up to 125hp.
 
Don Rowell, President, says, “All these propellers were designed specifically for their applications and feature distinct twist and blade shapes matched to their intended purposes.”
 
Sensenich has been manufacturing propellers for over 87 years.  Composite propeller development utilizing an internal pressure molded system with aerospace thermoset composites began in 1998 with the first propellers proven in the rugged Florida air boating environment.
Aviation propeller testing and flight began in 2003, and Sensenich has manufactured over 65,000 composite blades to date.
 
All of these new Sensenich composite adjustable pitch propellers utilize their unique Pitch Setting Gage System which makes pitch adjustments to the propeller quick and accurate. These propellers feature shot peened, anodized aerospace aluminum hubs and bonded metal leading edges. All propellers are tested to ASTM Compliance standards.
 
Rowell summed up: “These propellers will bring out the best in your current or future aircraft project.”
