IS&S supplied the flat panel displays and the partner performs the installation and pilot training.

The two-day turnaround is accomplished by a field crew at the customer's site of choice, rather than requiring the aircraft to fly to a designated installation facility.

The companies received Supplemental Type Certification from the FAA in October of 2005 for the upgrade.
