SAM® is a solid-state instrument that displays attitude, altitude, airspeed, slip, vertical trend, and heading information to the pilot during normal or standby operation in the event of primary instrument failure.

SAM's small size and selectable orientation (horizontal and vertical) allows for flexible cockpit design and installation.
