The FAA has granted Technical Standard Order (TSO) approval for Universal Avionics SBAS-Flight Management System/Multi-Missions Management System (FMS / MMMS) Software Control Number 1001/1101. This software release includes features to improve operational efficiency and support special mission operations. Enhanced features include an improved user interface for activation and operation of search patterns, and implementation of Airdrop for the MMMS. An optional module, Airdrop calculates an Air Release Point, and provides guidance and steering position offset where the delivery should exit the aircraft for a landing at the desired drop zone. Another optional module, FlexPerf Trip Performance, provides advanced fuel saving predictions for aircraft performance in climb, cruise, and descent phases of flight.
