SUNDSVALL, SWEDEN, OCTOBER 9, 2013 — navAero announced today the contract signing with Croatia Airlines for the deployment of the navAero Tablet EFB system for the airline’s A319/320 and Q400 fleets.

Dual networked installations of the navAero Tablet EFB system will be installed with provisioning that features a fully adjustable mount for the customer selected Samsung ATIV tablet device and connectivity to aircraft power for device charging that will allow Croatia Airlines to achieve their initial program goal of flying paperless in early 2014. Wiring provisions for both fleets will also be included in the system installation so to allow for the future addition of the navAero Universal Aircraft Interface Device (UAID) to the EFB system architecture for providing ARINC data connectivity to the tablet devices. Data connectivity integration will take place in Phase 2 of Croatia Airline’s EFB program. navAero will also provide complete rapid decompression and EMI testing for the Samsung ATIV tablet.

The navAero Tablet EFB System consists of a modular, proprietary designed “Smart” Mount tablet holder that securely contains that tablet device and meets all appropriate DO-160 requirements. The holder is integrally equipped with the navAero Power/Data Interface (PDi) module that converts 28VDC aircraft power to that which is appropriate for charging the tablet device. The PDi module also feeds aircraft data (ARINC 429, 717, Discretes) when the system architecture includes the navAero Universal Aircraft Interface Device (UAID).The UAID also provides built-in capabilities for QAR functionality.

Josip Grgec, Flight Operations Director, Croatia Airlines stated: “We are always looking new ways to improve our performance and, on top of it, our safety. With navAero Tablet EFB system we will reduce pilot workload, improve situation awareness and safety. The navAero Tablet EFB system has clearly shown itself to be one that has the capabilities we are looking for in a flexible and adaptable technology solution. If a change of device is ever required, it allows for multiple variations of tablets to be hosted to achieve maximum flexibility and upgradeability.”

Simone Giordano, Executive Vice President, navAero Group stated: “navAero is tremendously pleased to have Croatia Airlines join our ever-growing family of airline customers who have embraced our Class 2 EFB technology. The customers we have gained who have chosen our iPad/Tablet system gives us the commercial confidence that we are on the right track and that we have developed the correct system solution to meet the airlines' needs and demands.”

Giordano continued: “Our Class 2 iPad/Tablet EFB System provides end-to-end connectivity from aircraft to operations. It’s a certified system that brings together all the components under strict STC approval that provides for the utmost in reliability and usability as opposed to piecing together various loose components into an ad hoc solution .”

Deployments on both Croatia Airlines fleets will begin in early 2014 with installation kits for the Airbus 320 family Bombardier Q400 available at that time.
