The IS&S Flight Management System (FMS) retrofit increases operational flexibility and reliability, improves dispatch and on time arrival availability, simplifies maintenance and provides enhanced safety through improved situational awareness and reduced crew workload.
The FMS offers full performance navigation and mission planning capabilities, storage for up to 128 Waypoints, storage for up to 100 Flight Plans, the ability to store a Global Nav Database on a 32 GB Solid State Drive, a common ARINC 424 Database, and integration with existing IRU/AHRS equipment. Flight crews will utilize the data in the navigation database to create, edit and modify flight plans. Navigation data includes airways, jet routes, SIDS, STARS, user stored routes and more.
The FMS interfaces with the IS&S SBAS GPS receiver to provide a WAAS/Global Positioning System (GPS) based navigation solution. The GPS receiver is located remotely depending on space availability
