The X-43A high speed version had our telemetry system which collected data from 479 sensors and transmitted them to the ground in real time. The Accurate Automation X43A-LS designed, developed and flown for the NASA Langley and Ames Research Centers. The X43A low speed version of the Mach 9.4 X-43A has the same body dimensions as the full scale vehicle. The plane has taken off under its own power, done pattern flying and had perfect landings. The X43A-LS was initiated to demonstrate the low speed handling characteristics of an aircraft with the size and shape of NASA’s Hyper-X scramjet test vehicle. Features of the AAC’s X43A-LS program  Fly-by-light cabling and PWM control communication on an X43 UAV.  Small 150lb thrust jet engine  Adaptive flight control including obstacle avoidance.  Autonomous flight control.  X43A flown using Accurate Automation Corporation designed and supplied telemetry and data acquisition hardware on the Mach 7 and 9.4 flights.
