  • Abstract:
    This document provides an overview of Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) systems and capabilities, as of June 2010. This document updates and replaces the April 2007 EFB Industry Review (Yeh and Chandra, 2007). As with the previous industry survey, the focus is on the human systems interface. The information for this report was gathered through industry contacts, demonstrations, websites, brochures, and trade journal reports. This report was conducted in support of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), but the information is intended to be of use to anyone interested in EFBs. The report contains four sections. The first provides an overview of the effort. The second contains tables summarizing the information collected from those manufacturers who provide an integrated EFB system solution. The third provides details for products and services offered by EFB systems manufacturers, i.e., those who develop physical EFB hardware and provide EFB software. The fourth contains detailed information for products offered by EFB software manufacturers who do not develop EFB hardware. Software manufacturers were classified into two categories: those who offer an integrated and customizable software package that integrates several functions/applications and those who provide commercial off-the-shelf software that has not been integrated, customized, or tailored for a particular EFB. References to FAA EFB regulatory and guidance material and links to Flight Standardization Board (FSB) reports, which provide information regarding the operational suitability for particular EFB models, are also included.
