InSight® Display System

 

Over the years, we’ve gained a sound understanding of what pilots want in their flight deck; avionics to make operations easier and more intuitive, and most importantly – safer. We learned much of this through communication and interaction with our customer base on our current EFI-890R Advanced Flight Display.

With the InSight System, we’ve combined our passion and vision into the future of avionics with our customers’ desires and high expectations for quality.

Integrated Flight Deck


The InSight display system is designed as an integrated flight deck solution, featuring embedded synthetic vision with advanced mapping capability, electronic charts, radio control, and broadcast weather. With fewer required external Line Replaceable Units (LRU) for essential functions than traditional avionics systems, InSight means less avionics weight and wiring for your aircraft, which equates to a cost savings on the installation.

As an integrated solution, InSight retains the ability to interface with a large number of federated components such as attitude/heading sensors, air data computers, radars, traffic systems, radios, and autopilots. InSight translates into lower operating and maintenance costs for your flight operations while providing enhanced safety, situational awareness, and functionality for pilots.

 

Retrofit and Forward-Fit Flight Deck


An open architecture allows for flexible integration into new aircraft platforms, future customization, and upgrades on airframes, minimizing financial impact and complexity of integration.

Ease of configuration is crucial. The web-based InSight External Configuration Editor (ECE) tool makes pre-design and system configuration a breeze, aiding Authorized Dealers during installation and maintenance thereafter.

The ECE is a cloud-based configuration application, controlled via web browser, for the InSight system. The user is able to create and edit configurations for the entire InSight system and save for multiple aircraft, then copy and share configurations among other individuals in their organization. These configurations are viewable in various formats and are output to a binary file that can be easily loaded into the InSight system via Ethernet connection.

Logging onto the ECE is straightforward and made possible through UniNet, Universal Avionics Customer Portal.

InSight includes a range of required and optional databases to meet your aircraft needs and flight requirements. Databases include: Terrain, Obstacle, Navigation Reference, Airport Mapping, and Electronic Terminal Charts (eCharts). Databases are downloaded using the Universal Avionics custom-designed Data Download Tool (DDT), a Microsoft® Windows® based PC tool. InSight databases are uploaded into the system via Secure Digital (SD) memory card through the ANK, which incorporates an SD card slot.


Data Download Tool

The Data Download Tool (DDT) is a Microsoft Windows-based PC tool used to download InSight aeronautical database updates; Terrain, NAV Reference, Obstacles, and Airport Mapping (AMDB) databases supplied by Universal Avionics, and the eCharts database supplied by Jeppesen. The DDT is available to customers and Authorized Dealers/Integrators as a download from the UniNet Online Portal (a UniNet account is required).

Database updates are downloaded via the DDT and stored on the PC's hard drive, then exported to SD Card for upload into InSight via the Alphanumeric Keyboard (ANK).

DDT Minimum Requirements

  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 or equivalent processor
  • RAM: 2 GB at 1066 MHz or better
  • Hard disk space: 32 GB free space
  • Network: 1.5 Mbit/s connection
  • Removable Media: Class 10 32 GB SD card through USB 2.0 or equivalent SD reader
  • Operating System: Windows 7 or newer

Flight planning happens in many places, and the sheer volume of information flowing in and out of the cockpit is increasing dramatically. Universal's InSight Connect app for the InSight® Display System provides the capability to integrate navigation and flight planning data wirelessly to InSight from your iPad, making flight planning a less demanding task.
