Jepp and Arinc Combine their Best EFB Parts
Jeppesen and Arinc yesterday announced an alliance that will integrate “best of class” EFB components from each company’s portfolios to produce what officials are billing as “the industry’s most advanced electronic flight bag system.” Arinc’s eFlightDeck technology combined with Jeppesen’s EFB software, applications and data will give buyers a complete package from a single source. Arinc will provide the system’s airborne data communications and document-viewer technology, along with EFB integration and hardware support. Jeppesen will provide its digital terminal charts and en route moving map and airport moving-map technologies. Jeppesen also announced receipt of Federal Aviation Administration operational approval for its terminal chart application on class-3 EFBs. First deployment will be on Boeing 777.
