Tech/Engineering - Aerospace / Aviation / Space / Purchase contract
French term or phrase: faisceau double capteur vitesse triple
The above is in a list of parts to a Purchase Contract for speed sensors on helicopters. Unfortunately I have no more context than this for the term.
TIA for any input.

double wire harness triple speed sensor
Explanation:
It seems logical that they mean a double wire harness for a triple speed sensor: this gives enough redundancy so if any one item fails, safe flight is assured.

Speed sensors are more likely to fail (see the Turkish Airlines crash in The Netherlands or a crash in the Dominican Republic 8 (?) years ago) than wires so it figures that you build more redundancy in the sensors. Moreover, if one sensor doesn't fail completely but gives false values, comparison with the other two can indicate which is at fault.

Sounds completely logical...

neutral  Tony M: Yes, but double wiring harness — otherwise it would sound like one harness made of double wires, which is probably less likely.
