Bird FlightHawk™ (FH-AV-KIT)

Bird FlightHawk™ (FH-AV-KIT)

Aviation RF Cable & Antenna Analyzer Kit

The job of an aircraft maintenance engineer is to ensure that all systems work flawlessly meanwhile the time an airplane spends on the ground should be brought back to a minimum. This means that you do not have time to work by 'trail and error' so you have to know what situation you are looking at so you can get to the point straight away.
Complete kit ready for field use
To serve exactly that purpose, the RF experts at Bird put together RF Aviation Test Kit (FH-AV-KIT) specifically designed for avionics testing and measurement which is delivered in a single rugged, portable case ready for use whereever you may need it.
Measure with precision
Evolving from the proven cable and measurement technology of the Bird SiteHawk, this purpose-built unique set of tools is completely based on aircraft OEM specifications and backed up by 75+ years of experience and expertise from Bird. With Distance-to-Fault (DTF) and Frequency Domain Reflectory (FDR) measurements you will find the exact location of (potential) failures.
Reducing measurement complexity
The comprehensive aviation testing software and user interface provides pass or fail status along with other visual indicators. This allows the entire RF maintenance crew (both experienced and beginners) to operate the device with confidence and verify all antenna systems in the fleet.
  • Test RF cables & antennas at the frequency of operation.
  • Locate RF cable, connector & antenna problems at the source.
  • FDR (Frequency Domain Reflectometry) measurement method results in a highly reliable assessment of the health of critical components in your system; ultimately providing a “heads-up” before a failure occurs.
  • Fault location or DTF mode plots VSWR or Return Loss levels at each distance point along the cable and antenna system length.
  • Cable Loss function measures insertion loss of the cable system over a given frequency range.
  • OTG USB communication port for connection to Bird power sensors, storage devices and battery charging.
  • Includes the Bird RF Meter App
