Boeing's Latest 737-9 ecoDemonstrator Testing Crane A&Es New Long-range Sensing


Reading time ( words)

Crane Aerospace & Electronics, a segment of Crane Co., has been selected to feature its new Long-Range Wireless Tire Pressure Sensors on Boeing’s 2021 737-9 ecoDemonstrator program.

Crane A&E’s Long-Range Tire Pressure Sensors are installed on two of the aircraft’s four main landing gear wheels and represent an innovative evolvement of Crane A&E’s wireless sensing technology. Crane A&E’s new sensors communicate with a maintenance tablet with a Crane A&E-developed application that allows maintenance personnel to easily access and analyze tire pressure data. The system enhances tire-related safety, reduces maintenance and operating cost, maximizes tire life and permits predictive maintenance.

“For years, we have had the honor of supplying industry-leading wireless tire pressure sensing to our global customer base,” said Hilary King, Crane A&E VP & GM, Sensing & Power Systems. “Our new Long-Range Wireless Tire Pressure Sensors are the latest in our ongoing commitment to provide leading edge sensing solutions to improve aviation operations for our commercial and military customers. We are pleased to demonstrate our new technology on Boeing’s prestigious ecoDemonstrator.”

Boeing’s ecoDemonstrator program accelerates innovation by taking promising technologies out of the lab and testing them in the air to solve real-world challenges for airlines, passengers and the environment. Eight airplanes have served as flying test beds for the program since it began in 2012.

I-Connect007 Editor's Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

09/04/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
When compiling my Top Five, I tend to let the reader views guide my choices. Oh, sure, sometimes a news item is significant well beyond the reads it receives; that’s why this is an editor’s picks, not a strict Top Five. Still, readership habits inform my choices. That makes it even more interesting when a week demonstrates a theme so convenient as to seem contrived. Take this week, for example. In this week’s top five, four of the top five are news reports on mil-aero topics. You, dear readers, gobbled up the military and aerospace news this week. The outlier is, as we all would expect, a conference report from our very own Pete Starkey.
