  1. Innovative Solutions & Support tests and delivers NextGen C-130 flight deck

    Innovative Solutions & Support tests and delivers NextGen C-130 flight deck March 25, 2015 By Courtney Howard Executive Editor EXTON, Pa., 25 March 2015. Innovative Solutions & Support Inc. (IS&S) (NASDAQ:ISSC) completed the flight testing and customer delivery of its NextGen Flight Management System (FMS) on the C-130 aircraft . “This extensive flight deck upgrade transforms the cockpits on both C-130 and L-100-30 aircraft, integrating legacy and newly installed equipment into a common advanced cockpit,” IS&S officials say. As part of a fleet-wide flight deck installation program, the first plane has been completed and accepted by the customer. The second aircraft has begun modification. The avionics upgrade makes the aircraft Communication, Navigation, Surveillance/Air Traffic Management (CNS/ATM) and Night Vision Imaging System (NVIS) ready. The IS&S flight deck upgrade integrates the IS&S FMS with seven large flat panel displays, a standby navigation unit, a warning system, and computers to enhance tactical and situational awareness while improving the reliability, maintainability and mission readiness of the aircraft. The IS&S NextGen Flight Management System integrated with Beta 3 GPS receivers provides RNP/RF WAAS/GPS and LPV capabilities. These capabilities, unprecedented in this aircraft, further demonstrate the robustness and cross-platform versatility of the IS&S FMS. The included Standby Navigation Unit senses, processes, and displays altitude, attitude, airspeed, slip/skid, and navigation information in an intuitive single instrument display. The system also includes primary, navigation, and engine instrument displays with associated control panels and data concentrators. The Caution, Warning and Advisory Panel (CWAP) enables centralized cautionary and warning indications in the flight deck and provides an interface with the remote attention getters to enable flight crew alert of annunciated cautions or warnings. CWAP also provides outputs to activate warnings in the aircraft audio tone and voice alerting system. Headquartered in Exton, Pa., Innovative Solutions & Support Inc. is a systems integrator that designs and manufactures flight guidance and cockpit display systems for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and retrofit applications. The company supplies integrated Flight Management Systems (FMS) and advanced GPS receivers for precision low carbon footprint navigation. IS&S supplies Flight Management solutions to the commercial air transport market, the military aviation market for C-130, L-100, and the business aviation market for the Eclipse E500 and E550 aircraft.
