Data/Mapping Feeds to 3rd-Party Maps
Besides the Tracker-Map service, tracking data can be directed to other partners and mapping services:
aff.gov: Unified tracking system for Forest Fire Operations
Alternative aircraft tracking services:
Dedicated air medical services automation:
Easier installation configuration through an embedded web server using a standard laptop without special software.
Auto power-down message after removal of ships power through an UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply).
An OLED diagnostic display to simplify installation, configuration and troubleshooting.Inclusion of an ARINC 429 interface to interface with FMS/GPS systems without using an additional LRU.
Phone Number and Configuration Data stored in a module that stays with the aircraft allowing LRU changes without re-configuration.
