Sanders Smoke Technologies, Inc. specializes in Airborne Self-Contained Smoke Generator Systems. In 1972, Frank Sanders developed a smoke generating system for his personal Hawker Sea Fury to use during Airshow demonstrations. In 1973, he was approached by NASA to develop a smoke generating system they could use for wake vortex studies. That model was the SCSG (Self-Contained Smoke Generator). In 1981, Frank developed a second model, which is the Smokewinder®.

Smokewinder® and SCSG series smoke generating systems were developed to fill the need for a smoke system that is independent of the engine influence and location. These smoke generating systems have greatly expanded the application and scope to which smoke may be used in aircraft operation. Each smoke generator system is built and individually tested at Sanders Smoke Technologies and then shipped in enclosed wooden crates.

The Smokewinder® and SCSG have been designed for ease of operation, are quick fitting, easily removed from the aircraft’s mounting racks and are completely self-contained, producing dense high quality smoke. Both systems have been operated to 0.8 Mach from sea level to 15,000 feet and up to 9G's. Smokewinders have been flown inert up to Mach 2.0. Models of the Smokewinder® and SCSG have flown for 38+ years.
