For more than a century, Meggitt has been instrumental in solving some of the toughest engineering challenges faced in the aviation industry. Over the years, the company has been providing leading-edge solutions for aircraft and airborne machines. Meggitt works closely with leading aircraft OEMs. Many of the company’s solutions are deployed on aircraft programs, including the ATR family, Bombardier C series, and many more notable names.

With its headquarters in the UK, Meggitt delivers components and sub-systems that provide critical functionality in challenging environments within the civil, aerospace, military, and energy markets. Meggitt’s unique products are known for their ability to improve performance and stability while minimizing downtime and increasing aircraft safety. The company offers safe and cost-effective solutions for flight, power, and defense systems. Aircraft and engine manufacturers rely on the company for its technology, products, and services and have been using Meggitt’s products on their systems throughout the aircraft for decades.

Meggitt’s profound expertise in designing and developing flight data and sensing systems have proven to be of utmost help to pilots who require accurate and reliable information on altitude, airspeed, and local air data. Some of the solutions include monitoring systems for airframe and engine, health and usage along with crash and flight data recorders, flight test instrumentation, and vehicle data logging systems. The company offers air data computers that provide information to the pilots with market-leading stability and are high reliability. Its modules and units generate a digital output of the critical flight data, which is, in turn, fed into the main avionics display. The company’s wide range of compact, lightweight units include the air data module (ADM), air data unit (ADU), helicopter air data system (HADS), and the high integration air data computer (HIADC).

For the avionics sector, Meggitt also offers flight deck instruments that display flight data and information on the engine and fuel systems in all environmental conditions. Alongside developing flight displays, Meggitt also fabricates the sensors that are embedded at the heart of these systems. Meggitt’s technologies provide aircraft operators with intelligence on physical position, momentum, and configuration in real-time. The sensors and indicators are responsible for controlling the movement and position the equipment precisely. Whether it is measuring an aircraft’s orientation and airspeed, or displaying threat warnings, Meggitt has the solution for it all.

Today, Meggitt is renowned for its high-performance cockpit displays, attitude sensing, specialized air data products, and life support systems in the aerospace industry. Another unique solution that Meggitt offers is its vibration and condition monitoring systems that conduct health monitoring, system prognosis, accelerated diagnosis for aircraft health. The system detects faults at an early stage and helps technical personnel perform maintenance at the right time, reducing unplanned downtime. The monitoring system prevents damage and costly repairs and thus optimizes maintenance and performance. Recognizing the growing need for key personnel to travel farther and efficiently, Meggitt’s solutions enhance the safety and comfort of the journey while increasing efficiency and maximizing the ROI.
