Rockwell Collins today announced a series of updates to its ARINCDirect SM Flight Operations System (FOS ® ) including the ability to integrate with new tools and the launch of a new vendor alliance charter management program.
"We are focused on enhancing efficiency for flight departments as well as giving them access to the latest technology," said Brian Kruger, senior director, Applications and Services for Rockwell Collins. "These enhancements will provide users with more functionality than ever before and allow them to realize the benefits of our comprehensive ARINCDirect flight support services offering."
The latest FOS release features a more intuitive, mobile-friendly, touch-screen user interface for tablets and smart phones.
In addition, by being integrated with Rockwell Collins' ARINCDirect safety management tools, FOS now provides access to flight risk assessment tools as well as fatigue risk management provided through the Pulsar Infomatics Aviation Fatigue Meter suite and the SAFE tool developed by Fatigue Risk Management Science Limited.
With these enhancements, customers can instantly identify fatigue hot spots across their scheduled operations, design effective fatigue migration strategies and view interactive data reports.
The company also launched the Rockwell Collins Vendor Alliance for Charter Management. The new program allows charter operators who use FOS to make the marketplace aware of empty, transient and home base availability.
