Easy ADL and MDDU Replacement for Streamlined Data Distribution
Teledyne Controls’ enhanced Airborne Data Loader (eADL) greatly simplifies the distribution, onboard storage and management of loadable software applications and databases across an airline’s operation, by facilitating data transfer between ground-based computers and onboard avionics equipment.
Automated Electronic Distribution
Using Teledyne’s eADL, operators can reduce data loading time and streamline processes by eliminating the need to reproduce, distribute and load countless floppy disks monthly. In a single action, Software Parts can be quickly uploaded to the eADL with a single USB memory stick, alleviating repetitive manual methods. The distribution process can be automated even further with Teledyne’s Wireless GroundLink® Data Loading (WGL-Dataloading™) system. The latter wirelessly transmits Software Parts directly from the LoadStar® Server Enterprise (LSE) ground system to the eADL internal mass memory. It also returns loader activity information and data downloaded from aircraft equipment to the ground.
Convenient Onboard Data Storage
Another benefit of Teledyne’s eADL is its internal mass memory, which provides ample storage space onboard the aircraft to retain all required aircraft Software Parts, including applications and databases. This not only alleviates searching for software disks during line operations, but it also allows the entire contents of the aircraft’s software binder or data vault to be carried and stored electronically on every aircraft, facilitating LRU replacements and reloading at any location.
Superior User Experience
Selecting desired Software Parts, initiating loads, and monitoring the load progress is easy with the eADL’s user interface, which features a 3.8-inch color LCD display, 4 backlit line-select keys and 3 status indicators. End-systems that currently require multi-disk loads can now be loaded in one single action, eliminating time-out issues and reducing overall data loading times.
The eADL is a plug-and-play drop-in replacement for existing ARINC 615-3 onboard data loaders and for the Airbus MDDU. It does not require modification to the existing aircraft provisions. The eADL has EASA and FAA approval for Stand-alone and End-to-End installations.
