Esterlne Avionics Systems (Stand 1440) is displaying its integrated CMC Electronics helicopter cockpit demonstrator for the first time in Dubai to highlight the company’s capabilities in integrating systems to meet varied customer requirements. The scalable, flexible and customisable system uses a modular approach that allows the system to meet a range of needs from minimum to advanced, as well as to offer minor upgrades of existing systems through to a full integrated avionics suite. Flexibility comes from an open architecture that allows end-users to employ their own software. Together, these qualities make the solution fully customisable.

On display at Dubai Airshow 2017 in the cockpit demonstrator are the company’s MFD-3068 6- x 8-inch smart displays, which can host third-party applications. The displays feature MOSArt (modular open system architecture) middleware that permits the partitioning of applications. The high-definition displays can show primary flight data, navigation information, engine data and moving maps.

Also included in the integrated flight deck display is the CMA-9000 flight management system (FMS), supporting both civil and military navigation modes. The FMS is compliant with the latest standards for Required Navigation Performance (RNP) and Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) approaches. Also included in the demonstrator is the CMA-6024 GPS landing system sensor that provides SBAS GPS capability from departure to approach.
