EL SEGUNDO, CA -November 17, 2009 - Teledyne Controls, a business unit of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE: TDY), announced today that it has been selected by Dubai Aerospace (DAE), a world class aircraft leasing company, to supply its Flight Data Interface Management Unit (FDIMU) as a standard option for DAE's new fleet of 70 Airbus A320 aircraft. DAE's customers will use Teledyne's multi-function FDIMU system to perform flight data acquisition, aircraft condition monitoring and data recording.
"Our FDIMU is recognized as the industry standard and flies on more Airbus aircraft than any other data acquisition units today. Likewise, it's the system of choice for aircraft leasing companies because their airline customers more than likely carry our FDIMU onboard their existing Airbus A320/330/340 aircraft. This gives the airline the convenience of leasing aircraft with a common data acquisition system that will reinforce their FDM program, without disrupting it," said Mark Shoemaker, Teledyne Controls' Sales and Service Director for the North American region. "We are pleased that DAE selected our solution and we look forward to growing our relationship with DAE to support them and their customer's data management and other aircraft communication needs."
"When we selected Teledyne's FDIMU as the data acquisition option on our new Airbus fleet, we had our airline customer's best interest in mind to provide an economical and reliable flight data management system with multiple functions, including ACMS capabilities to fully maximize our customer's investment," said Nicole Goodson, Program Management Director for DAE Capital Advisors.
About Teledyne's Flight Data Interface Management Unit (FDIMU)
Flying on more than 65% of all Airbus aircraft today, Teledyne's FDIMU is a compact integrated system that includes mandatory data acquisition and a fully-programmable ACMS (Aircraft Condition Monitoring System) with recording functions and processing capability. The FDIMU offers extensive flexibility, enabling users to specify the parameters they need for flight data monitoring, maintenance and operational efficiency, without the artificial constraints typically imposed by traditional data management systems. The unit is available for installation on the Airbus Single Aisle A319/A320/A321 and Long Range A330/A340 aircraft families, allowing operators with multiple aircraft types to utilize the same ACMS technology and programming tool across their fleet.
