Duncan Aviation’s Glass Box Program recently added to its lineup with the certification of Honeywell’s latest Advanced File Graphics Server (AFGS) upgrade for the Hawker 800 and the Hawker 1000. The AFGS is a computing platform bringing advanced graphics generation capabilities, such as electronic charts and uplinked weather, together with mass data storage to allow for the operation of flight display applications.
Duncan Aviation recently equipped a Hawker 1000 with Honeywell’s Primus Epic CDS/R solution, a three-display major panel retrofit. Duncan Aviation has installed the Epic system in the following aircraft models: Hawker 800A, Hawker 1000, Gulfstream GIII, and Falcon 900B.
The AFGS interprets complex symbology commands based upon stored databases and generates a vivid pictorial display of the data for the flight crew. The AFGS generates custom graphics and performs high-speed processing and high-capacity data storage as necessary to support the display of electronic charts and maps and uplinked weather information. The server enables the display of approach charts, terminal maps, Standard Instrument Departure (SIDs) charts, Standard Terminal Arrival (STARs) charts and the map application. The map feature provides a moving map on which uplink weather data is displayed. The AFGS applications are controlled by drop-down menu selections shown on the DU-1080 and controlled by the MC-800 multi-function controller.
