UTC Aerospace Systems has been selected by Dassault Aviation to supply the Ram Air Turbine System, the SmartProbe® Air Data System, the Fire Protection System and the Throttle Control Unit for its latest Falcon 5X Business Jet.

UTC Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp., will provide the systems through its Electric Systems business in Rockford, Ill., its Sensors & Integrated Systems business in Burnsville, Minn., and Paris, France, and its Propeller Systems business in Figeac, France.

The Ram Air Turbine System will provide power to the aircraft in the event of an emergency. To date, UTC Aerospace Systems RATs have saved more than 1800 lives worldwide. The next-generation SmartProbe® ADS provides all critical air data parameters for the flight controls and pilot display systems.

“We are excited to have been selected by Dassault Aviation for their new Falcon Business Jet, strengthening our long-term relationship,” said Gail Baker, vice president of Aerospace Customers and Business Development.
