IMPORTANT MESSAGE – the IWS Predictive VMU Product Line and associated assets have been acquired by Astronics Ballard Technology, an industry-leader for reliable aircraft and avionics data interface solutions and world-class customer support.
INFLIGHT WARNING SYSTEMS was formed in 2002 specifically for the purpose of developing a line of bearing vibration monitors for use in commercial aircraft. Flight diversions resulting from smoke in the cockpit and cabin caused by fan failure has become a significant problem in flight operations.
IWS has worked closely with airline customers to develop a successful product line, and has delivered over 4000 units worldwide.
We specialize in vibration analysis, the basis for predicting fan failure. Although aircraft fan applications have been the core of the IWS products, other applications, including non-aviation markets, are also a part of our products and expertise.
The IWS Vibration Monitor Unit (VMU) is a proven device that is easily retrofitted to aircraft fans to eliminate fan smoke failures thus eliminating flight diversions resulting from these failures.
