AURATM will be compatible with the most common flight deck avionics systems in use today. As long as the aircraft has EFIS (Electronic Flight Information Systems), it is AURATM capable. This means that aircraft ranging from commercial airliners to small business jets can benefit from the protection of AURATM.

ADVANCED PROTECTION FOR THE FUTURE
AIRCRAFT UPSET RECOVERY AUGMENTATION
The AURATM Version 2 technology is truly the future of aviation safety, by providing fully automated aircraft recovery from flight situations that will result in imminent loss of control if action is not taken. Utilizing advanced software, real-time situational modeling and adaptive recovery solutions, AURATM Version 2 can truly provide the last line of defense against loss of control accidents.
Aircraft Upset Recovery Augmentation, or AURATM, is the culmination of over 10 years of industry operational experience combined with extensive research and design. It is the first technology designed to aid, assist or fully recover through automation, an aircraft from an imminent loss of control. It will be the first technology solution designed to directly address the Improper Human Response error that is present in the majority of loss of control in flight accidents.
AURATM is a stand-alone aircraft avionics system that when installed into existing flight deck avionics platforms, receives full data integration with existing components. Utilizing an innovative software process known as the Flight Predictive ModelTM, AURATM continuously monitors aircraft flight parameters and data and then utilizing real-time situational modeling, determines when an aircraft will encounter an imminent loss of control situation and activates a recovery while the aircraft is still under control. This allows the pilot an increased response time to the LOC-I situation.
When AURATM detects that an LOC-I situation is imminent, it activates the Safe Flight ModelTM, a real-time recovery solution process that provides the pilot with a visual depiction of the corrective actions that must be taken immediately to prevent or recover the aircraft from the LOC-I situation.
The key benefit to the AURATM technology in mitigating LOC-I accidents is the intuitive display that is rendered to the pilot on the Primary and Secondary Flight Displays. It was specifically designed based upon research of improper human response error and fight or flight reactions. It instantaneously renders a “Danger/Safety” depiction to the pilot, which provides the pilot with the initial and immediate control actions to recover the aircraft to a safe flight attitude, without any thought whatsoever. This is accomplished through the use of colors and depictions that represent danger on one spectrum and safety on another. Since fight or flight reactions are responses that are primitive in nature, the AURATM recovery system provides resolutions that will instinctively produce the desired reaction by the pilots while safely increasing the margin of response time.
AURATM does what no technology has previously: provide the pilot with a resolution to prevent or recover from a loss of control in flight situation.
