Jeppesen And Teledyne Controls To Deliver Increased Airline Data Connectivity Through New Agreement
Increased connectivity will enhance capabilities of Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro EFB solution
ENGLEWOOD, COLO., May 2, 2017 – Jeppesen, a Boeing Company, has teamed with Teledyne Controls to integrate Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro with Teledyne’s GroundLink® Comm+ system with Aircraft Interface Device (AID) functionality, known as GroundLink® AID+. This will deliver greater data connectivity for carriers using FliteDeck Pro, the leading electronic flight bag (EFB) solution for airlines and large-scale operators.

“Advances gained through use of Teledyne’s GroundLink® AID+ technology will continue the wave of new capabilities delivered through FliteDeck Pro to help operators access and process critical flight data,” said Scott Reagan, director, Jeppesen OEM Client Management. “Based on strong customer demand for this capability, we are pleased to team with Teledyne Controls to connect FliteDeck Pro with additional data sources, creating more intelligent capabilities on the ground and in the air.”

GroundLink® AID+ technology from Teledyne will allow airlines to view real-time GPS-based, ownship positioning on navigational charts to increase situational awareness in flight. 

Specifically, this alliance between Jeppesen and Teledyne allows airport charts, departure charts, enroute and weather maps and arrival charts in FliteDeck Pro to be quickly and easily integrated with data from the aircraft’s existing onboard data systems to help enable the pilot to make better informed decisions to increase operational efficiency and improve safety margins.

Murray Skelton, director of Business Development at Teledyne Controls, notes that the technical integration has been easy and cost-effective: “With approximately 10,000 GroundLink® units already flying, it is an easy transition for those with the technology already installed. It not only protects their legacy investment but it also enables them to make even more of it. It means that every future customer with the GroundLink® Comm+ system installed can gain instant benefit.”

The integrated solution will be demonstrated at the AEEC/AMC Conference in Milwaukee, WI
(May 1–4).

Connectivity provides the pilot with access to the EFB at all times. Pre-flight, pilots can update their EFB database, review maintenance logs, Minimum Equipment Lists (MELs), flight release and notices to airmen (NOTAMs). During the ramp/taxi, they can calculate take-off performance and complete their checklist. During the flight, they can log flight progress and review enroute, arrivals and approach charts. After the flight, they can file the pilot log and send performance calculations off-board.
