The aviation data management and control system, or ADMACS, is a tactical, real-time data-management system.
Although the Ouija Board has served the Navy since World War II, ADMACS will replace this labor-intensive method.
"ADMACS delivers cutting-edge technology to today's tech-savvy Sailor," said Capt.
The system communicates aviation and command-related data across networks, allowing ADMACS to display an aircraft's position on the flight deck, status, fuel readings, weapon types, and their quantity on the carrier.
"Because ADMACS runs off of uninterruptable power supplies, if the power is lost on a flight-deck-control workcenter, the data will be collected and the system will continue to be fully operational," said Bruce Chiodi, ADMACS program lead.
"When ADMACS went aboard CVN 73 in 1995, air operations kept the grease boards because they felt ADMACS' large-screen displays were going to fail.
