navAero announced the successful completion of RTCA DO160 Section G testing for electromagnetic interference and rapid decompression on fourth generation iPad™ tablet computers.
As an enhancement of navAero research and development capabilities, the RTCA DO160 testing is a value-added service to customers who request professional assistance in obtaining the required documentation that will allow them to achieve paperless cockpit operational approval of iPad devices as a Class 2 EFB and navAero iPad/Tablet EFB hardware installations.
Testing can be provided on either a single commercial sample as a one-off test, or on a commercial sample plus a letter of similarity and tracking/auditing capabilities based on serial and part number, to cover any other like tablet device acquired and included into the customer’s operational EFB environment.
navAero service includes specific test plan and relevant documentation normally required by the authority. All testing results are provided as official documentation for operator use and are usually accomplished within 1 to 2 weeks after project initiation.
“This enhanced capability of our R&D Department shows our dedication and focus on providing value-added customer services as well as our embrace of the aviation industry’s acceptance of adapting tablet devices to function as Class 2 EFBs,” states Simone Giordano, navAero group vice president, Sales and Marketing. “We are presently expanding our testing services and will soon be providing test results on a number of different tablet devices.”
