Posted by John McHaleEL SEGUNDO, Calif., 30 Sept. 2010. Teledyne Controls, a business unit of Teledyne Technologies Inc. (NYSE: TDY), announced that Uzbekistan Airways selected Teledyne's flight data interface management unit (FDIMU) for installation on their new Airbus A320 aircraft. Uzbekistan Airways will use Teledyne's FDIMU to perform flight data acquisition, aircraft condition monitoring, and data recording to reinforce their FDM (flight data monitoring) program. "With Teledyne's reputation and FDM expertise, we believe their FDIMU is the most reliable unit available and that it will support our 'FDM needs by giving us greater insight into our fleet's performance," says Andrey Margachov, deputy chief line maintenance of Uzbekistan Airways. "Definite considerations when selecting Teledyne's FDIMU were its programmable ACMS (Aircraft Condition Monitoring System), its adaptability with existing onboard equipment, and its integrative capability with our fleet and our operation, which should be seamless because of the unit's compatibility with the Airbus aircraft.""Uzbekistan Airways is a long-standing customer who has been using our DFDAUs (digital flight data acquisition unit) on their Boeing 757 and 767 and other aircraft equipment for over 15 years," says Alex Pomogailo, Teledyne Controls' regional sales representative for the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Teledyne's FDIMU is installed on nearly 75 percent of all delivered Airbus single aisle and long range aircraft. This compact integrated system includes mandatory data acquisition and a fully-programmable ACMS with recording functions and processing capability. The unit is available for installation on the Airbus Single Aisle A319/A320/A321 and Long Range A330/A340 aircraft families, allowing operators with multiple aircraft types to utilize the same ACMS technology and programming tool across their fleet.
