Jeppesen has teamed with Teledyne Controls to deliver greater data connectivity for carriers using FliteDeck Pro, the electronic flight bag (EFB) solution for airlines and large-scale operators, the company said.
The companies will integrate Jeppesen FliteDeck Pro with Teledyne´s GroundLink Comm+ system with Aircraft Interface Device (AID) functionality, known as GroundLink AID+, the company said.
GroundLink AID+ technology from Teledyne will allow airlines to view real-time GPS-based, ownship positioning on navigational charts to increase situational awareness in flight.
Connectivity provides the pilot with access to the EFB pre-flight, during the ramp/taxi, during the flight, and after the flight.
Jeppesen, a Boeing subsidiary and part of the Digital Aviation business unit within Boeing Commercial Aviation Services, delivers transformative information and optimization solutions to improve the efficiency of global air operations.
