Trig Avionics Limited is now a member of Aspen Avionics Connected Panel Program. Trig joins a number of industry leading players involved in this initiative. The Connected Panel concept champions the compatibility of third party avionics products and wireless-based technologies, officials explain.
Andy Davis CEO at Trig said, “We’ve become a Connected Panel Program Partner as we wish to become part of a growing group of vendors committed to open interfaces. It’s clear that more pilots wish to use their own portable uncertified avionics in the cockpit. The Connected Panel Program enables flight planning applications to integrate with certified avionics, enabling a more efficient cockpit set up for flight. This technology will allow different avionics vendors to offer greater cross product compatibility; this will be good for customers providing more choice and easier integration.”
Using Connected Panel products pilots can interface between their certified avionics and wireless devices using the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity in over 900 aircraft types.
Aspen Avionics and Trig Avionics offer technological solutions for the retro-fit market. Aspen sell a range of flight display systems such as the Evolution 1500, 2000 and 2500 series. All Aspen products are all compatible with the Connected Panel Program.
Trig Avionics designs and manufactures certified avionics for the general aviation sector.It produces a retro-fit unit called the TT31 and compact transponders; the TT21 and TT22.
The company is expanding and offering new products, such as its TY91 and TY92 radios, company officials said. Further new products will be introduced in 2013 aimed primarily at the retro-fit market.
