The system's touch screen interface can be easily customized for different applications, allowing the operators to choose the preferred display data and modes. Its dual-CPU architecture ensures real-time response for mission-critical data acquisition and supports redundant and remote interfaces via a standard SNMP interface.
ORBIT's Communication Management Systems product line features fully digital and secure systems which allow the flight crew to select and control all onboard communication devices. The systems provide a focal point for inbound and outbound communications, including public announcement, warning systems, radios and crew intercommunications.
The system is based on a set of 'building blocks' providing the capability to tailor a solution from commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components for airborne applications (fixed and rotary wing), as well as seaborne applications. A software configuration suite enables quick installation and reconfiguration to existing communication system, including the ability to interface with IP-based applications.
ORBIT will conduct a live demonstration of the IP interface, enabling the transfer of IP based data such as VoIP between the terminals. Through its IP interface the systems can support advanced communications and allow for future growth requirements.
