JUNE 17 SUNDSVALL, SWEDEN — navAero announced today the contract signing with Neos S.p.A. based in Somma Lombardo, Italy,for the deployment of the t▪BagC22 Electronic Flight Bag computer and display hardware system on the airline’s fleet of B737-800 and B767-300ER aircrafts. Neos will be installing the navAero Class 2 systems as a significant technology  advancement from the Class 1 platform they have been utilizing.

The navAero Class 2 EFB hardware will feature the latest in technology offerings and will be installed in a dual networked configuration. The flight deck-installed EFB system will feature internal CPU HSDPA/UMTS/GRPS/EDGE modules and the t▪Pad™ 2000 Display. The system architecture will also incorporate the recently commercialized navAero Aircraft Interface Device (AID) providing certified connectivity to aircraft systems which can enable deployment of advanced software applications like airport surface area moving map with own-ship position shown.

NavAero will also be providing proprietary software, integration services and Supplemental Type Certification (EASA STC) for each aircraft type. Neos will continue to utilize the highly effective and efficient software from AMT as their core application suite. Deliveries of the navAero EFB systems will begin in during Q3, 2011. Acquisition and cost of ownership expenses were justified through return on investment savings that Neos was able to calculate through the real-world experience they gained in their Class 1 EFB program.

Simone Giordano, President – navAero Asia stated: ―Over the past months, we have worked closely with Neos in helping them define the migration path that will take them from Class 1 EFB technology to Class 2. The navAero Class 2 system will provide Neos with a platform that can be used in all phases of flight along, connections for accessing aircraft data and on-the-ground 3G wireless connectivity.

All together, this will substantially increase the overall effectiveness of their EFB initiative for increased cost savings over what they have realized to date with their Class 1 program. All together, they will have a dramatically enhanced platform with augmented flexibility, versatility and connectivity.
