FDIO and related specially designed systems provide the necessary functional capabilities for National Airspace System (NAS) flight plan data, weather information, general information and message entry and receipt to all air traffic control and traffic management facilities.
Each FDIO system provided by Brixtel is composed from Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) components, including memory, cards, power supplies and cables.
