A modified F-5 Stick Grip, it is the primary pilot/aircraft interface for flight, avionics and weapons system control on this Northrop aircraft.
Right and left slew grips, mounted on the console to provide sensor control.
The LM-100J control yoke is identical to that of the C-130J. This system handles pitch and roll flight control, as well as the control of various aircraft systems such as pitch trim, communications and other on-board avionics.
The Ambidextrous Cursor Grip is designed for applications where there is not sufficient room for both right and left slew grips. This single control is suitable for use by the right or left hand and mounts on the console between the seats for use by both pilot and co-pilot.
The Ergonomic Collective Grip has a unique shape that provides the optimum hand position for long-range comfort, reducing fatigue during flight. The patent-pending design incorporates additional switches to eliminate hand repositioning or dual seat inputs.
The new Ergonomic Collective Grip enables pilots to fly the aircraft while maintaining control of all electronic switch functions.
Essex developed the Ergonomic Collective Grip for the UH-60 Black Hawk with eight different switches, including a Cursor Slew Switch and HUD Switch, which are not typically available on a collective grip.
The Ergonomic Collective Grip can be modified to fit any rotary platform and is particularly suited to those applications that require a wide range of functionality. Switches can be changed, as needed, to include uses such as weapon or sensor control.
This Inboard Throttle Grip is the primary pilot/aircraft interface for engine speed control, avionics and weapons system control on the Northrop F-5.
The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Throttle Grip is machined from a high-strength aluminum alloy casting. It contains a transducer, optical encoder and several single and multi-function switches. In addition to engine power control, these features allow for display cursor control, menu scroll/select, speed brakes, countermeasures, communications and weapons system functions. Along with the stick grip, Essex conducted a comprehensive qualification program for the F-35, including full environmentals, vibration, shock and EMI testing.
The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Sidestick Grip, along with the throttle grip, is the main pilot/aircraft interface for flight, avionics and armament systems. Manufactured from precision cast aluminum, this grip is resistant to environmental and structural conditions per MIL-STD-810. In addition to an adjustable palm rest, the stick grip contains a variety of single and multi-function switch assemblies for pitch/roll trim, display management, aerial refueling, nosewheel steering, autopilot override, weapon select, air-to-ground weapon release, gun and air-to-air weapon release.
