EFB Systems for Military Aircraft

EFBs give pilots mobile access to real-time data and critical mission-related information with the swipe of a finger while also automating manual processes. Switching from paper-based manuals and navigation charts to EFBs improves situational awareness, mission effectiveness and efficiency, reduces fuel and operations costs, and equips military aircraft for future mandated FAA requirements.

UTC Aerospace Systems’ EFBs offer enhanced functionality, NIST-certified encryption, broad capabilities and open architecture. They come complete with hardware, customizable software and support services that allow flight crews and maintenance personnel to perform critical ground and in-flight data management tasks electronically.
