Archangel Systems takes off with global aviation companies

AUBURN, Alabama – For Michael Greene, an electrical engineer with experience working on aerospace projects, it all started with failed mechanical gyros on a cross country flight in his private plane. Determined to create something more reliable, Greene started Archangel Systems in Auburn more than two decades ago.

Fast forward to 2015, and Archangel now designs, develops and manufactures certified sensor systems for use in both fixed-wing aircraft and rotorcraft. Its air data, attitude and heading reference systems – known as ADAHRS and AHRS – combine MEMS sensors and sophisticated algorithms to achieve high-level performance at reduced cost and size.

The Alabama company has built an international clientele with a focus on Europe. Scandinavian Avionics just received EASA STC approval for a King Air 200 installation with the Archangel ADAHRS. The U.K.’s Royal Air Force has completed its Project Julius Chinook upgrades with Archangel ADAHRS onboard. Marenco Swisshelicopters has selected Archangel AHRS for its SKYe 09, Switzerland’s first domestically designed helicopter. In addition, a supersonic variant is being used in fighter upgrade projects around the globe.
