Engineers at BAE Systems have begun to use Panasonic TOUGHBOOK to offer a quicker, smarter and more intuitive way of servicing Typhoon jets, the world’s leading combat aircraft.
The engineers at its Lancashire base are using the Panasonic TOUGHBOOK G1 to complement the aircrafts' onboard health management systems. Before and after every sortie, the aircraft performs its own 'health check' and presents a series of findings onto the Maintenance Data Panel, located on the side of the aircraft. Engineers analyse this information and conduct a series of checks, in parallel with the pilot's pre-flight cockpit checks, to ensure the aircraft is safe and fit for flight.
