Complex flight missions and tighter budgetary restrictions demand airborne mission computers that are faster and more scalable than ever. They must deliver higher processing and data throughput capabilities that work within existing avionics architecture. All while reducing size, weight, power consumption and cost.

FMC-4000 flight mission computers meet these requirements. They provide a combination of high-integrity, general purpose, multi-core processing resources, scalable I/O capabilities and high-integrity graphics generation. They also supply powerful, real-time video processing functionality based on a digital signal processing module.

Their flexibility enables customers to modify configurations to meet specific requirements with lower time, risk and cost.
