ANDROID APP FOR AIRCRAFT CABIN MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Flight Display Systems announces it has introduced and successfully installed an Android software application for use with its Select Aircraft Cabin Management System (Select CMS). Now VIP aircraft passengers can control all cabin functions from the familiar setting of their mobile phone or tablet computer. The software is available today for all Flight Display Systems Select CMS customers.
The launch customer for Flight Display Systems Android CMS software is a Hollywood movie producer who owns a Gulfstream III. The VIP 7” Android-powered tablet controls all cabin functions, such as lighting, window shades, Blu-ray player, movie library, and the Flight Display Moving Map. The wireless system operates via Bluetooth for full control anywhere inside the aircraft cabin.
“This new software allows us to give the customer full control of his aircraft cabin from the familiarity of his mobile device,” says Jonathan Pinson, the resident Android Technician at Flight Display Systems. “This software will work on any Android 2.0-powered mobile phone or tablet with Bluetooth.”
Android is the application framework developed by Google for connected mobile devices. According to Google, in December 2010, over 300,000 new Android phones were being activated each day.
