HENDERSON, Nev., - AEROCOR announces the acquisition of the BlueMAX wireless data transfer unit from Australia based Control-J Pty Ltd.
The BlueMax is a Bluetooth adapter that enables aircraft operators to wirelessly stream aircraft data to a portable device such as a phone or tablet. Originally developed for Cirrus aircraft equipped with Avidyne Entegra avionics, the BlueMAX unit is also compatible with other common engine monitors, such as those from JPI. The company has already begun to integrate the data capture capabilities into its data analysis platform FlightData.com.
"We are very excited to add BlueMax to our product portfolio," says company co-founder and president Gavin Woodman. "Users of FlightData.com have been asking for a seamless way to upload data, and BlueMAX will provide that capability." Woodman continued. He also noted that BlueMAX provides additional capabilities in flight, such as allowing users the ability to replicate or replace the functionality of an MFD with an inexpensive iPad.
AEROCOR is continuing development of the BlueMAX, and has plans to expand the list of compatible avionics platforms.
