InventHelp has announced a Louisiana inventor has developed the patent-pending GROUND PROXIMITY RADAR, a proposed ground proximity radar warning system for smaller general aviation (GA) and experimental aircraft, the company said.
The GROUND PROXIMITY RADAR improves a pilot´s situational awareness with respect to the aircraft position above a runway. It offers an audible signal warning if within a certain height above the ground. This may prevent hard-landing events or even loss of aircraft control. In turn, this will reduce or eliminate a sizable portion of aviation accidents. It may also eliminate costly repairs to an aircraft due to damage withstood upon hard landings.
The original design was submitted to the Shreveport office of InventHelp.
