1 Integrated Flight Information System (IFIS) Weather products
Mary Beth Lapis (319) Dan Gienger (319)

2 IFIS Major Focus Areas Improved Situational Awareness - Enhanced Safety Electronic Charts – Aircraft Symbol Overlaid Real-time Strategic Weather FMS maps with geopolitical boundaries, geographical features, Airways, and Airspace Improved Cockpit Efficiency Eliminate Paper from the cockpit Intelligent Integration of Information Charts and weather on forward displays FMS flight plan integrated with charts and weather functions User Interface evaluated, modified, and approved by pilots

3 Product Capabilities Uplink Graphical Weather (On MFD)

4 System Architecture L-CCP R-CCP = A429 = Ethernet Hardware
Upgraded Display File Server Unit Cursor Control Panel Market or Customers’ Most Important Requirements (MIRS) Clear definition of what is needed to provide the solution; i.e. the targeted opportunity Tangible and intangible benefits that are recognized as such by the customer Seen as using state of the art design and technology for customer image Ease of manufacturing Potential Customers Precisely detail who needs what you’re offering Describe channel(s) to market Factors Influencing timing & sense of urgency Size (sales volume in units and dollars) Bottoms-up detail of Served Available Market Size Identification of Intended Addressed Market & Size Reflect (as required) the Orders Flow that will generate the Sales Volume Document assumptions used for the market adoption How fast will the market start using this product Price elasticity considerations (price vs. volume) Substantiation and Validation of Market Projections (is it real?) Planned funding, Requirement Documents, key market indicators, substantiation of timing, etc. This can be done via interviews with key decision makers, respected industry analysts, customer planning documents, etc. Software Electronic Charts Graphical Weather Enhanced Map Overlays (Geopolitical, Airways, Airspace) Upload Capabilities ARINC 615-A: FSU Software and Databases = A429 = Ethernet

It is gray and should be 60% the size of the text. The second level bullet is a dash selected from the normal menu. It is located in the fifth row, eighth from the left. For second level text, this dash is used at 70% of the size of the text, all other levels are set at 60% of the size of the text. These sizes are set in the template.
