The Northrop Grumman Italia LISA-200 AHRS, is a lightweight Fiber Optic Gyroscope Attitude Heading Reference System (FOG AHRS) based on a state-of-art Northrop Grumman LN-200 Inertial Measurement Unit and Northrop Grumman Italia's 20 years of experience in the design, development, and manufacturing of inertial navigation systems. Qualified to DO 160/MIL-STD-810 requirements and certified according to DO 178B, the LISA-200 AHRS is in full production and in service on several military rotary and fixed wing aircraft worldwide.
The LISA-200 AHRS has been designed in a single box configuration in order to fit old mechanical Vertical Gyros' footprints and to provide ease of installation and fast replacement completely transparent to aircraft functions. The availability of several digital and analog interfaces coupled with high maintainability, demonstrated reliability and extreme installation flexibility, make the LISA-200 the best choice for installation on new platforms or for retrofit applications. The LISA-200 AHRS has been designed with an embedded growth and capability potential to continuously accept state-of-the-art technology. While the current production is based on the highly successful Northrop Grumman LN-200 Fiber Optics Sensor, the system has been studied to integrate sensors with different technologies (i.e. Micro Electro Mechanical Sensors).
Due to a modern modular architecture, LISA-200 AHRS can be provided as a complete system integrated with Flight Management and Control software, control panels and displays and navigation sensors (GPS, MSU, ADS) to provide operators with the most flexible solution to their most stringent requirements.
