Extending Connectivity to Wired/Wireless Flight & Cabin Crew Devices
Teledyne Controls provides a complete solution for enhancing EFB systems
functionality by adding off-board communication, access to aircraft parameters
and data management capability via its new GroundLink® AID+ system. This solution
extends all AID functions to WiFi enabled EFB systems and other crew devices
through a cockpit wireless network available in all flight phases. The AID+
system permits wireless tablet based EFBs (such as iPads) or traditional
Ethernet connected Class1/2 EFBs to be integrated with the aircraft regardless
of EFB form factor, operating systems or whether they connect with the aircraft
as a wired or wireless EFB system.
An easy add-on to the GroundLink® Comm+
system, the GroundLink® AID+ system extends the airline’s investment already made
in the GroundLink Comm+ provisions and hardware for applications, such as
automated wireless Flight Data download and/or automated software and data
upload to the aircraft mass storage data loader.
