Universal Avionics has announced that the engineering of the InSight display system is now fulfilled, and that the company is working toward completion of the STC and TSO package in preparation for TIA.
Upon approval, InSight will provide operators with a new modern, integrated flight deck solution.
“We are pleased to have reached this significant milestone and look forward to introducing our latest product to the industry,” said Dan Reida, Universal Avionics V.P. of sales and marketing. “We recognized the challenge to get new technology into the flight deck without an entirely new upgrade, and InSight is the solution,” he added.
With the open architecture of InSight and the ability to support multiple interfaces, customers can leverage the investment made in other systems into the InSight display system, helping to manage the cost of upgrading. System configuration options are available for 3- or 4- 10.-inch (diagonal) EFI-1040 displays, and fewer required Line Replaceable Units (LRU) allow for less avionics weight and wiring in the aircraft. InSight is a flexible, integrated solution for both new aircraft platforms and retrofit upgrades.
Some of InSight’s hottest features include embedded next generation synthetic vision with advanced mapping capability, along with embedded charts, radio control and broadcast weather. When integrated with Universal Avionics’ SBAS-FMS and UniLink UL-800/801 Communications Management Unit, InSight provides a path to meet future mandates and requirements like PBN, CPDLC, FANS 1/A+, Data Comm, ATN B1, and more.
