CARNAC: Automatic Flight Inspections Systems

CARNAC family provides all requested  functionalities, from flight inspection of ILS, VOR, DME, MKR, NDB and radar systems to validation of PBN procedures. CARNAC is the only system that offers full inspection of RNP and RNAV navigation systems as well as guidance indications for calibration across the entire range.

CARNAC is unquestionably user-oriented for Flight Inspectors, with "Replay and Reprocessing" modes making it easy to analyze all captured flight inspection data, enabling the editing of flight inspection reports and fulfilling training requirements.

With the utilization of the CARNAC intuitive Man-Machine-Interface (MMI) a reduction of flight times has resulted, thus improving the cost effectiveness in delivering the optimum flight inspection service.

CARNAC is automated for enhanced integrity and comprehensive data analysis while at the same time the Flight Operator retains the full control of the FIS, including the selection of different data to be displayed on screen which enables more thorough and in-depth analysis.

Safran Electronics & Defense pays close attention to all customer feedback. As a result of new innovations requests from the operators of FIS, CARNAC is consistently improved and upgraded.
