Cobham Aerospace Communications to provide the Search and Landing Light of the Airbus Helicopters H-160 HIL program

Cobham Aerospace Communications has been selected by Airbus Helicopters to develop a new generation of dual-mode visible and infrared search and landing lights for the H160M GUEPARD developed in the frame of the light multirole helicopter program led by the French Armament General Directorate. The system is based on a new innovative generation of headlights integrating a three-axis kinematics. Combined with a new generation of on-board computers and communication with the avionics systems, our solution allows an illumination without ground limitation and a wide range of operational possibilities.

Nicolas Bonleux, CEO of Cobham Aerospace Communications, said “we are very proud that Airbus Helicopters trusts Cobham Aerospace Communications for the Search and landing light, increasing our content on this strategic platform after our selection for the audio/radio management system”.
