Upgrading Flight Control System With 12.1” Embedded Panel PCs

S12 Embedded Panel PC: An Innovative Solution for Airline Operations

Richard B.Panel PC

Do you know that all airplanes have a flight management system (FMS)? What about it? It means that its on-board embedded panel PCs are used for multi-purpose navigation.

According to GlobalSpec, FMS also provide performance computations and plane operations during flights. But, as the systems continue to evolve, requiring an upgrade of the flight control system is a must.

In most cases, processes are now automated for in-flight tasks and avionic systems. Hence, to improve flight safety and effective aircraft operations, industrial computers are fundamental.
