Esterline CMC Electronics (Booth 3339) is showcasing at EBACE 2014 its new PilotView information management solution, designed for integrated cockpit connectivity via an Aircraft Information Server (AIS). Making its EBACE debut, the system offers versatile aircraft network connectivity, secure file storage and aircraft interface capabilities with virtually any type of electronic flight bag (EFB). The new AIS addresses the increasing information-sharing and information-management requirements associated with cockpit, cabin, health monitoring and aircraft maintenance systems. It also reduces the complexity and implementation costs of similar systems, according to CMC.

The Montreal-based avionics provider also has on display here its new PilotView Class 2 EFB, the CMA-1612, featuring a 12.1-inch LED-backlit display with multi-touch support. The EFB delivers high-end processing capabilities for applications, while offering versatile aircraft network connectivity, according to Jean-Marie Bégis, CMC’s director of EFB systems. The CMA-1612 has been selected as a factory option on the Bombardier CSeries airliner and as a standard option for a variety of business jets from Dassault Falcon and Embraer.
