DME Indicator AWA VAN 3

Early DME cockpit indicators were of the analogue type. The needle showed the distance from the DME beacon on the inner scale. Pushing the button at lower right caused the ground speed to be displayed on the outer scale.

The instrument was supplied by Amalgamated Wireless Australasia (AWA) for use with the AWA VAN 3 DME transceiver (aircraft equipment).

This instrument is in the Airways Museum collection.
