Navigation and Landing Indicator
MFD (Multi-Function Displays) are used in aircraft cockpit to assist the pilot. This MFD has been designed to assist the pilot during navigation and landing exercises. Running on Power PC and MQX RTOS this unit can be controlled using the front bezel key functions.
The MFD called as NLI (Navigation and Landing Indicator) senses the aircraft using a 16 channel ARINC bus. The sensors indicate parameters like magnetic heading, automatic direction finder, VHF omni-directional range, and distance measured. NLI operates in two modes one for navigation assistance in air and the other for landing assistance. The unit integrates into the cockpit of the aircraft and seamlessly integrates into the ARINC bus of the aircraft.

WHY "NAVIGATION AND LANDING INDICATOR"
PRODUCT IN ACTION
NLI is a critical part of the pilot’s cockpit that assists the pilot during navigation and landing. The frontend is a rugged display system while the back end is interface to various sensors on the aircraft.
The systems reads aircraft position parameters like ADF, VOR, MH, DME that provide estimates of the yaw, pitch, roll and distance from ground. These sensors are interfaced on standard bus like ARINC. NLI reads the sensor inputs processes it and displays data on a standard display format for pilot’s immediate comprehension.
User interface over Bezel keys allow the pilot to navigate into multiple modes for comprehensive view of the position of the flight.
