Boeing has awarded Teledyne Controls a contract to develop and supply the next generation of aircraft data acquisition systems for the Boeing 737NG and 737 MAX families plus the new information management system for the 777, 737NG, 737 MAX and 747-8 production aircraft.
As an integral part of the contract, the data acquisition and information management solution includes two newly-developed avionics units: the enhanced Digital Flight Data Acquisition Unit (eDFDAU) and the Network File Server 2 (NFS2), designed to further improve flight safety, efficiency and maintenance.
“The trust and confidence that Boeing has shown in awarding Teledyne this contract confirms our position as the leading provider of aircraft data acquisition and information management systems,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne. “We are proud to continue our commitment of delivering ‘intelligence in flight’ to the world’s major aircraft manufacturers and airlines.”
“Teledyne’s experience and innovation continues to be recognised by Boeing in providing not only the latest state-of-the-art data acquisition and network server systems, but also a collaborative approach in support of Boeing’s Commercial Aviation Services (CAS) offerings and solutions,” noted Masood Hassan, president of Teledyne Controls.
