Heli-Expo 2011: CMC Electronics Touts Its Handy, Versatile TacView
Esterline CMC Electronics (Booth No. 4234) is showcasing the features of its TacView portable mission display, with the emphasis on “portable.”
Having the approximate surface area of a legal note pad, TacView can be hand-carried on board, installed and removed in seconds. The compact, self-contained computer and display provides access to moving maps, live weather, approach plates, checklists, flight and maintenance manuals, frequency and call sign lists, passenger and cargo manifests and customer-created Microsoft Windows-based applications.
The NVG-compatible TacView interfaces seamlessly with most aircraft data networks and runs Microsoft XP-compliant software to offer a wide range of options and capabilities, according to CMC.
The commercial off-the-shelf TacView has been selected by Lockheed Martin to meet current and future C-130J mobile display system requirements. CMC has supplied the system to BAE Systems for the U.S. Navy C-130T.
