Moog Crossbow Receives EASA Approval for Airborne use of ILC2000 Cargo Monitoring and Tracking Device

21 July 2015

Milpitas, California, USA – Moog Crossbow, a wholly owned subsidiary of Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B), recently passed a technical review by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to permit airborne use of its ILC2000 real-time cargo monitoring and tracking device. The technical review was based on Part-CAT AMC-GM-Issue 2 - Amendment 1 (Annex to ED decision 2014/029/R) detailing the requirements for Cargo Tracking Devices under AMC1 to CAT.GEN.MPA.140 Portable Electronic Devices. Moog Crossbow holds a similar endorsement from the FAA. 

Roger Shuler, Business Unit Director of Moog Crossbow, said: “The ILC2000 is currently being used by airlines, logistic providers, OEMs and end users to monitor and track their cold chain and high value shipments. EASA approval is seen an important step in expanding that user base and will be welcomed by new and existing customers alike.”

The Crossbow ILC2000 was designed for ground, airborne and multi-modal shipments and delivers unprecedented real-time tracking and condition monitoring for cold chain and global supply chain applications.  The ILC2000 provides location information using GPS/LBS, has an advanced sensor array for monitoring cargo/environment and global wireless communication capability. The ILC2000 also incorporates an “airplane safe mode” using on-board sensors and patented algorithms to automatically deactivate the radio transmitter when the device is airborne, yet it still continuously tracks and logs location and cargo/environmental data. Similarly, the radio transmitter is automatically reactivated when the plane lands.

The ILC2000 is available for direct sales or as part of a broader asset monitoring and tracking service. Contact our Sales Department at +1 408 965-3300 or e-mailsales@moog-crossbow.com for pricing.

Moog Crossbow is known as the smart sensor company with more than 500,000 sensor based products delivered to date including advanced MEMS based navigation and guidance products for the aerospace market.
