Richard Hardin, founder of Cumberland Signal is my guest on SBR. Cumberland Signal is a Chattanooga, TN based company that seeks to transform the aviation community by introducing the industry’s first avionics backplane switching module, Flight Hub.

Today, when an airplane goes in for a re-fit of its instrumentation, weeks of planning, re-wiring, tests, and re-work take place. Born out of frustration, Flight Hub  condenses weeks of labor, eliminating thousands of brittle in-line connections, and simplifies the physical installation process.

Please tune in to learn how Flight Hub is transforming the avionics industry.

When a plane comes into a shop for a major retrofit, instead of re-crimping hundreds of tiny, brittle old wires, the old wiring is removed and pre-assembled wiring harnesses are put in their place. The result is a tidy panel, rock solid connections, component redundancy, and a level of reliability that’s never been seen before in the space. The customer is happy with the cost savings/ turn-around time, and the installer is happy with the elimination of re-work that robs shops of their profitability.

We will learn how Richard Hardin and Cumberland Signal plan to go after this $3 billion market.
