Secure Server Router (SSR-7000) Electronic Flight Bag Interface and Communication Unit (EICU)

Bring secure, wireless data transmission and connectivity to your crews and lower costs to your operations

The SSR-7000 Secure Server Router is an Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Interface and Communication Unit (EICU) that brings value to your airline by improving data security and crew connectivity while lowering your costs for data transmission, flight operations and maintenance.

With compact, all-in-one connectivity, this solution combines the capabilities of traditional wireless data transfer and avionics interface devices with ultra-secure EFB and crew wireless access. It seamlessly integrates with your existing operational work flow.

The unit's embedded router wirelessly connects an EFB to on-board and external networks. These networks include avionics, maintenance information, cabin, air-to-ground, airport gate and airline operation centers. Selecting the most cost-effective communication channel available for transmitting data and connecting the EFB to external networks is easy with built-in tools.

The EICU/SSR-7000 also features a Virtual Digital Aircraft condition monitoring system Recorder (VDAR) and creates files that work with your existing FOQA/MOQA tool set. Use the ground cellular/Wi-Fi connectivity to automatically download standard quick access recorder (QAR) files to your airline's back office for use in your current flight data management system (FDMS) program.
