DRS Technologies, Global Enterprise Solutions (GES) Aviation Division, is the leading provider of MRO services to the United States Coast Guard aircraft. We utilize General Electrodynamics Corp. (GEC) and their AN60-6 aircraft scales to perform our weighing’s. GEC’s reputation in Weight & Balance Industry and continual work with the US Military were deciding factors in our decision making process. The scales being lightweight call for minimal setup and takedown time which eliminates extra manpower. Furthermore, the dependability, precision accuracy and wireless system are attributes that accelerate our weighing process.
The wireless scales communicate directly to our wireless handheld system. Using GEC’s software eliminates the need for manual calculations which could lead to possible human error. By exporting the weigh reports from the wireless handheld we eliminated paper trail and now can share weigh reports instantaneously through email. We are pleased with GEC’s scales as they have time and time again performed to our expectations.
