Velocity Aerospace Signs Dealer Agreement with Archangel Systems

Velocity Aerospace (Burbank, CA) and Archangel Systems (Auburn, AL) have signed a dealer agreement that authorizes Velocity to sell, service, and install Archangel products.The agreement focuses on Archangel’s line of sensing products, including the AHR150A Air Data Attitude Heading Reference System (ADAHRS), AHR75 Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS), AHR800 Supersonic ADAHRS, and AFC001 Flight Controller.


With locations in Ft. Lauderdale, Burbank and the Van Nuys airport, Velocity Aerospace is a world class provider of aviation component repair and overhaul (MRO) services, installation and upgrade for aerospace systems, as well as component exchange programs to both operators and maintainers. Expanding its upgrade and modification projects is part of the growth strategy for 2014 and beyond.

Velocity Aerospace President Dennis Suedkamp stated, “We welcome the Archangel family of products into the Velocity Distribution and Installation teams. The Archangel product lines truly move Velocity and our aerospace customers rapidly into the forefront of the industry with these high quality, forward thinking and highly reliable components. The weight savings and cost savings along with the high reliability provide a very rapid return on investment.”

Velocity Aerospace has a global customer base of commercial air transports, corporate business aircraft, freight carriers, regional airlines, general aviation and helicopters. They also serve as an authorized stocking distributor for several aircraft instrument and component OEMs and industrial instrumentation OEMs.

From Bill Dillard, Archangel’s Director of Emerging Technology, “Archangel has done good work to date with aircraft OEMs. We are now teaming with dealers interested in modification projects and STCs. Velocity’s MRO experience provides tremendous visibility into upgrade opportunities. This agreement is an excellent fit for both companies.”

The Archangel ADAHRS and AHRS use MEMS sensors and sophisticated blending algorithms to yield "FOG-grade" performance at greatly reduced size, weight, power, and cost. The AHR800 is designed to operate in the extreme environments of supersonic aircraft with maximum indicated airspeeds of 850 knots. Bridging the gap between modern AHRS and legacy autopilots, the AFC001 provides efficient automatic flight control while converting ARINC 429 attitude data to dc control voltages.
