The Seagull-05 Attitude Indicator is a high-performance, low power flight instrument intended for use in light recreational aircraft such as gliders, ULs and LSAs. The Seagull-05 Attitude Indicator integrates an artificial horizon, a turn indicator and a slip indicator into a single light-weight 2.25” compatible unit.
Unlike traditional gimbaled mechanical gyros, that have a limited range of angular motion (typically 60° pitch, 100° roll), the Seagull-05 Attitude Indicator sensors support an unlimited, full 360°, 3-dimensional representation of the instantaneous aircraft orientation. This feature ensures that the Seagull-05 Attitude Indicator will neither tumble nor lock up as a result of any extreme manoeuvers.
The Seagull-05 Attitude Indicator utilizes state-of-the-art MEMS (MicroElectroMechanical System) attitude sensors to provide this extraordinary level of performance and reliability. All Seagull-05 Attitude Indicators furthermore undergo a rigorous calibration protocol at the factory to ensure sensor accuracy over the full operational range.
The full 360 degree triaxial freedom offered by the MEMS sensors, enables correct display of aircraft attitude regardless of aircraft orientation. During knife-edge manoeuvers the artificial horizon will correctly reflect aircraft orientation. Zenith and nadir markers indicate the direction of a vertical heading (straight up or down) i.e. the markers will appear while performing a vertical loop allowing the pilot to fine-tune the manoeuver.
To ensure rapid real-time performance and device stability, the Seagull electronics is implemented as a compact, embedded multi-processor system. Adhering to the JPL rules for flight software “JPL Institutional Coding Standard for the C Programming Language” ensures the robustness of all on-board software.
Ease of Operation
The Seagull Attitude Indicator powers up rapidly when activated. Settling of the gyro-sensors occurs with 3 sec. after power-up. Due to inherent drift the gyro-sensors are continuously calibrated during flight.
