Neos Moves Up to navAero Class 2 EFB

navAero recently announced signing a contract with Neos S.p.A. based in Somma Lombardo, Italy, for the deployment of the t?BagC22 Electronic Flight Bag computer and display hardware system on the airline’s fleet of B737-800 and B767-300ER aircrafts. Neos will be installing the navAero Class 2 systems as a technology advancement from the Class 1 platform they have been utilizing. The navAero Class 2 EFB hardware will feature the latest in technology offerings and will be installed in a dual networked configuration. The flight deck-installed EFB system will feature internal CPU HSDPA/UMTS/GRPS/EDGE modules and the t-Pad 2000 Display. The system architecture will also incorporate the recently commercialized navAero Aircraft Interface Device (AID) providing certified connectivity to aircraft systems which can enable deployment of advanced software applications like airport surface area moving map with own-ship position shown. NavAero will be providing proprietary software, integration services and Supplemental Type Certification (EASA STC) for each aircraft type. Deliveries of the navAero EFB systems will begin in during Q3, 2011. Acquisition and cost of ownership expenses were justified through return on investment savings that Neos was able to calculate through the real-world experience they gained in their Class 1 EFB program. “The navAero Class 2 system will provide Neos with a platform that can be used in all phases of flight along, connections for accessing aircraft data and on-the-ground 3G wireless connectivity,” says Simone Giordano, president navAero Asia.
