Heli-Expo 2011: CMC Electronics Touts Its Handy, Versatile TacView

 - March 6, 2011, 8:20 AM

Esterline CMC Electronics (Booth No. 4234) is showcasing the features of its TacView portable mission display, with the emphasis on “portable.”

Having the approximate surface area of a legal note pad, TacView can be hand-carried on board, installed and removed in seconds. The compact, self-contained computer and display provides access to moving maps, live weather, approach plates, checklists, flight and maintenance manuals, frequency and call sign lists, passenger and cargo manifests and customer-created Microsoft Windows-based applications.

The NVG-compatible TacView interfaces seamlessly with most aircraft data networks and runs Microsoft XP-compliant software to offer a wide range of options and capabilities, according to CMC.

The commercial off-the-shelf TacView has been selected by Lockheed Martin to meet current and future C-130J mobile display system requirements. CMC has supplied the system to BAE Systems for the U.S. Navy C-130T.
