Sherborne Sensors selected by DaVinci Aircraft Inc. to supply
accelerometers for the US Military

Highly customised, high-performance sensors will be deployed to extend
the life of military aircraft platforms

London, UK, 9th July 2013 – Sherborne Sensors, a global leader in the
design, development and manufacture of sensors for military, aerospace
and industrial applications, has been selected by DaVinci Aircraft, a
company that specialises in sourcing obsolete aircraft parts, to
supply customised accelerometers for the US military.

The Defence Logistics Agency for the US military approached DaVinci
Aircraft to source a number of highly customised accelerometers to
extend the life of some of its older military aircraft platforms.
DaVinci Aircraft soon discovered that the companies that originally
supplied the sensors for these aircrafts have now gone out of business
or no longer manufacture the required parts.

Being able to safely extend the life of military platforms such as
aircraft to address future threats within the budgetary constraints
that exist has become vital and being able to continue to supply the
parts for these, even if they are no longer being manufactured is

Leonardo Parra, founder and president of DaVinci Aircraft Inc. is a
DOD Defence contractor that supplies aircraft components to the US
Government, he explains, “Before speaking to Sherborne Sensors we had
all but given up hope of being able to source the highly customised
parts. Luckily Sherborne Sensors are experts in the design and build
of customised high performance sensors and despite the specialised
nature of these products it could turnaround the order extremely
