ASPEN AVIONICS was selected by
Universal Avionics Systems Corp. to provide its Connected Panel wireless gateway
system for Universal's InSight Connect
Integrated Flight Deck.
"Using popular navigation applications
such as Jeppesen or Foreflight combined
with Aspen's Connected Panel, we are able
to provide a means to integrate navigation and flight planning data wirelessly to
the InSight Integrated Flight Deck from personal devices, making flight planning a less
demanding task," said DAN REIDA, vice
president of sales, marketing and support for
"Aspen's Connected Panel creates a
wireless bridge between smart devices and
Universal Avionics InSight Integrated Flight
Deck increasing the pilot's access to navigation
data while increasing the utility of their mobile
devices," said JOHN UCZEKAJ, president and
chief executive officer of Aspen Avionics.
Aspen's patented Connected Panel hardware is enclosed in a small unit called the
CG100U, which is blind-mounted behind
the aircraft's panel. The CG100U contains
wireless, industry standard interface protocols as well as flash memory storage.
Leveraging commercially available technology, the CG100U includes standard protocol
ports and communications slots that will
allow Connected Panel developers to add
peripheral hardware as needed to enhance
the utility of their own applications.
Initial installations of the Connectedenabled InSight Integrated Flight Deck are
expected in 2015.
