Electronic Flight Bag Systems for Commercial Aviation
The use of portable electronic computing devices has long been recognized by commercial aviation operators as a beneficial tool to help increase operational efficiencies. These devices can perform a wide variety of functions with greater effectiveness than using traditional paper references. But the cost of implementing an EFB program, apprehensions about technology obsolesce, concerns over hardware and software integration and certification issues are all potential items of concern that may have impacted an airline’s decision on whether an EFB program is the right technology for them.

Defining an EFB Program
Before any consideration is given as to what kind of EFB program is the right business decision, the operator’s technology roadmap must be reviewed and analyzed. This is a milestone step that must be taken in order to determine what EFB platform is going to be the right one to support the operator’s organizational growth and long-term business objectives for flight deck technology today...and into the future.
There needs to be a complete understanding of hardware and software classifications, communications options as well as aircraft data and informational needs that are essential to fulfill software requirements. The list seems endless. This is where a trusted partner is needed to bring all the pieces together into an integrated solution that meets your long-term needs.

What navAero Brings to You
More than just a hardware provider, navAero has been on the fore-front of EFB technology development and systems integration since the original regulatory guidance documents were first published. We lead the industry in certification programs and complex integration initiatives with leading airlines around the world that have shown our hardware to be the most robust, reliable and adaptable avionics-grade EFB solution available.

System Functionality
The navAero t•Bag™ EFB system is the leading EFB system in the industry and provides more built-in connectivity and functionality than any other product offering. Using the Intel® 1.5GHz Core2 Duo processor with 2GB RAM and 4MB Cache, the navAero t•Bag CPU is amply robust to run the most demanding applications. And with its modular design and architecture, the system can accommodate future enhancements and upgrades with no change to form, fit, function.

In terms of connectivity, each navAero t Bag CPU provides three USB 2.0, three Serial RS232 (two configurable as RS422 or RS485) and the ability to have built-in ARINC 429 connectivity. And four 10/100 Base T Ethernet ports are standard provisions so to facilitate networking with other on-board EFB CPUs, file servers, surveillance cameras or other peripherals (i.e. printers, satcom, etc.) that require Ethernet connectivity for data sharing.

Wireless Connectivity
The t•Bag CPU provides the built-in ability to host a wide variety of wireless connectivity for secure wireless data transfer to and from the aircraft. navAero provides operators with the choice of CDMA/CDMA EV-DO CPU MODULE (North America use only), UTMS/HSDPA/3G and EDGE/GPRS/2G or WLAN 802.11x.

Display Choices
navAero offers two t•Pad™ displays. each offer 10.4” viewing areas that can be oriented in either portrait or landscape positions. Both feature 1024 x 768 resolutions and provide for a wide field-of-view on resistive touch screen panels. The t•Pad 2000 also offers FMS-style bezel keys for application use. All navAero displays incorporate high-end optical enhancements to meet demanding daylight and night time viewing requirements.

Tablet Solutions
navAero is embracing tablet devices. While fully committed to continuing to provide the industry with purposefully designed and certified Class 2 EFB systems, navAero has designed installation and system architectures for including tablet technology platforms into our EFB cockpit designs. navAero has created mounting solutions for the i-Pad and Android devices that can achieve PMA as well as a certifiable means to achieve connectivity to the aircraft systems (power and data).

navAero has defined this new category of technology as Class 2 EFB “Lite” Systems…a mounted EFB solution based on “xPad” PED hardware…such as, but not limited to, Apple iPad™-type devices where the hardware is a pure COTS solution.

Certification Expertise
navAero leads the industry in STC and STC amendments for its hardware. The t•Bag EFB System has been issued
the following certification approvals:
BAE 146


ACT Airlines, Air Arabia, Air Berlin, Air France, Air Italy (Meridiana), Brussels Airlines, Condor, Continental Airlines, flyNiki, GOL, Luxair, Malaysia Airlines, Malmö Aviation, Neos, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Novair, TUIfly Nordic, Virgin America
