Esterline CMC Electronics Displays Situational Awareness Device
The TacView Portable Mission Display from Esterline CMC
Electronics (CMC) will be on display at Heli-Expo in Orlando this
week. The self-contained computer and display system is designed
specifically to enhance situational awareness for the aircrew. CMC
says it is a cost-effective, rapidly deployable COTS system with
the processing power to enable numerous mission enhancing and
paperless cockpit applications.
The TacView system facilitates airborne mission effectiveness
and increases crew efficiency by reducing cockpit workload. TacView
provides access to moving maps, live weather, approach plates,
checklists, flight and maintenance manuals, frequency and call sign
lists, passenger and cargo manifests as well as any other customer
created "Windows" based applications, software and documents.
Designed for autonomous operation and use in harsh environments,
TacView can be installed and removed in seconds. It provides the
means to quickly deploy new capability and functionality at a
fraction of the time and cost of an integrated approach.
This innovative CMC product is a ruggedized, Night Vision
Imaging System compatible smart display that is designed for rapid
and inexpensive installation in fixed and rotary wing aircraft. It
interfaces seamlessly with most aircraft data networks, and can
often be installed without modification to the aircraft's legacy
systems. TacView runs Microsoft XP compliant software, providing a
wide range of options and capabilities to the aircrew.
The TacView system has been selected by Lockheed Martin
Aeronautics to meet current and future C-130J Mobile Display System
requirements, perform secure tactical data link communications and
paperless cockpit operations that enable unprecedented situational
awareness for the crew. CMC has supplied the TacView system to the
BAE Systems for the U.S. Navy C-130T aircraft.
