Electronic Flight Bag Users Forum

Inmarsat is the host sponsor for the November 2018 EFB Users Forum, in coordination with the Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC) of ARINC Industry Activities, in London.

The EFB Users Forum attracts airlines, suppliers, and regulators to discuss operational and technical trends to facilitate EFB development and capabilities.

Phil Balaam, President of Inmarsat Aviation, will give the opening keynote address and speakers will share their experiences and exchange information to identify issues and their potential solutions for advancing EFB capabilities.

LSE  study

On 14 November, John Broughton, Vice President, Inmarsat Aviation Safety and Operational Services, will present the recent findings of the London School of Economics’ study on the economic efficiencies of operational connectivity and how satcom delivers the real-time EFB connection needed to deliver those benefits.

Only Inmarsat offers an IP connectivity solution that is available for airlines to start using today, delivering real-time data and information, all the time. Operational connectivity and flight deck IP means tapping into a new source of value and access to integrated, on-demand apps such as health monitoring, maps and charts, weather, and flight data recoverability – all protected and segregated from other data.

The Forum, at the Heathrow Radisson Blu Edwardian hotel, will be co-chaired by Philipp Haller, Austrian Airlines, and Will Ware, Southwest Airlines.
