DAC receives approval from Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau

March 6, 2013  By Carey Fredericks

March 5, 2013, Austin, Tx. - DAC International, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced today that the Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau has approved its Gen-X Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) hardware with Touch Panel Display. The Gen-X hardware is an avionics certified PC suitable for other applications when installed into an aircraft.

The product was developed by DAC International to complement a Helicopter Moving Map and Auto Tracking System developed by Navicom Aviation Corporation based in Tokyo, Japan. The NMS-01S utilizes DACs EFB hardware with Touch Panel Display and Iridium phone system.  Using DACs EFB as the map generator and interface with the Iridium system has allowed Navicom to develop a more efficient installation by eliminating the use of interface boxes with the benefit of additional functions.
The new interface with auto-tracking system enables the transmission of character message from air to ground including registered position from air to ground without the need for an additional interface unit.
