GH-4001 ESIS Electronic Standby Instrument System

The next-generation standby system for military aircraft

The GH-4001 Electronic Standby Instrument System (ESIS) represents the next generation of standby technology for demanding high-performance military aircraft. The solid-state GH-4001 is a direct replacement to the popular GH-3001 model, utilizing the same wiring harness and connector. The GH-4001’s compact and rugged design allows it to be installed virtually anywhere in the cockpit, providing valuable attitude, airspeed, altitude, vertical speed and heading data to the pilot or pilots in the event of a panel failure.
