Just in time to the EFB Exhibition in London Heathrow, aircore systems has announced a brand new version 3.0 of their EFB solution AS-FlightBag. Updating a system that is already very good, this cockpit IT solution includes a lot of new functionality in the already well-established basic modules of Library, JourneyLog, CrewBriefing, LeastCostRouting and TechLog. But more than that, there is now a brand new module, eOFP, which supports the pilots and optimizes their daily work in the flight.
With this latest manifestation of a well-established solution, the objective was to provide one FlightBag for various and variable types of operations such as wet or dry Leasing, ACMI (Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance), Own Use, etc.. Also, to work across a range of hardware platforms like tablet PCs and notebooks using MS-Win 7 or 8, and Apple iOS. Furthermore, the solution had to be compatible with aircraft specific hardware such as that from Lufthansa Technik, Goodrich, EAE electronics, NavAero, etc.
aircore_systems GmbH (AS) has further developed the latest version of its EFB-Software Solution called AS-FlightBag, which includes the core modules:
1. Library: airline specific document management between ground and cockpit;
2. CrewBriefing: the eOFP and all additional information necessary for flight preparation;
3. JourneyLog: the dynamic flight data handling to and from the cockpit;
4. TechLog: electronic work order with eSignature and connectivity to several maintenance applications;
5. LeastCostRouting: minimization of data transfer costs between back office and cockpit;
6. PostFlightAnalysis: reporting of processes, efficiency and problems, controlling, statistic etc.
It is also possible to deploy fully embedded 3rd party applications such as performance tools and navigation applications like Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro and Lido eRoute-Manual as well as Cost-Index Operations from PACE.
As well as a high level of broad capability and functionality, AS-FlightBag offers great connectivity. All data (text files, databases, and technical parameters) are primary TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol)–based transferred via Wi-Fi, GPRS, Edge, 3G, LTE (4G) and IP-based SatCom. Data transfers via USB-Stick, Bluetooth or Iridium-Modem are possible, but less efficient.
An optional least cost routing (LCR) table minimizes the transfer costs depending on urgency, A/C position and kind of value.
A further feature of AS-FlightBag is the TechLog module which contains the aircraft technical status and a workorder management including eMEL functionality. eSignature function ensures authority for approved secured data transfer.
Efficiency and security throughout
Workflow optimization – leading to efficiency gain and cost reductions – is the main objective for AS–FlightBag 3.0 Suite. This is realized by a seamless information transfer between all participating functions in the airline, including operations control, cockpit, maintenance, back office, authorities and other parties. Trust center proven eSignatures can be assigned to all legal relevant activities and workflows and will ensure that paper based work can be substituted fully by electronic workflows.
