“Butler National – Tempe”
BNC-Tempe designs, manufactures, integrates and supports weapon control systems, ordnance related products and commercial aviation / avionics products.
Tempe specializes in designing and manufacturing gun control equipment, gun simulators and related custom test equipment, rapid integration weapon-control systems, aircraft fuel tank safety solutions, and weapon / instrument cabling solutions.
Butler National Tempe designs and produces the entire line of Gun Control Units (GCUs) for Northrup Grumman (formerly OrbitalATK) Bushmaster Chain Guns®, 7.62 MM through 50MM. We have designed and manufactured custom weapon controls for US Army Special Operation Forces. We have also created rapid-integration weapon control systems, designed to convert multi-use helicopters into helicopter gunships in under one hour.
BNC Tempe supplies the Gun Control Unit and Airburst Control Module used on the XM813 cannon (30-40MM) used in the Stryker Dragoon, and shown here in the General Dynamics LAV.
BNC Tempe also designs and builds obsolescence-replacement avionics units, to keep legacy aircraft in service. These projects all receive FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) Approval. The replacement avionics are form, fit and function compatible with the legacy units.
BNC Tempe has developed multiple FAA STC Approved Transient Suppression Devices (TSDs) for Classic 737 and 747 Model Boeing aircraft, to comply with FAA fuel tank safety Airworthiness Directives. Recently, BNC Tempe has developed TSDs with integral solid-state fuel quantity indicating units. These are custom designed for auxiliary fuel tank systems in commercial airliners being re-purposed into business / cargo aircraft.
