Dzus-mount Multifunction SBAS Flight Management System for Turbine Aircraft
Avidyne ATLAS™ is a new multifunction SBAS flight management system that sets a new standard for integration in turbine class navigation systems. The ATLAS FMS provides full Required Navigation Performance (RNP) and Area Navigation (RNAV) capability, including Localizer Performance with Vertical (LPV), Lateral Navigation/Vertical Navigation (LNAV/VNAV), LNAV-Only, and Approach Procedures with Vertical (APV) approach modes.
The Next Generation in Dzus-mount Flight Management Systems
Avidyne Atlas, the next-generation in flight management systems, incorporates significant technology advancements over anything else currently available. Avidyne Atlas features easy-to-use flight planning, one-touch departure, airway, and arrival navigation, and Avidyne’s patented GeoFill™ waypoint nomination. The system also features a full QWERTY-style keyboard along with touch-screen hybrid touch user interface that provides easy map panning and rubber-band flight plan editing. Its extensive I/O is designed to integrate with existing equipment in the aircraft including a long list of EFIS, PFDs, CDIs, HSIs, remote sensors, and autopilots, and it is also an approved ADS-B GPS position source with numerous transponders. Avidyne’s GPS Legacy Avionics Support (GLAS™) provides a direct interface to legacy Collins Proline 21 and Honeywell Primus EFIS systems for vertical guidance during approach operations. This unique integration capability enables EFISs certified before the availability of LPV approaches to have coupled approach guidance on these and other SBAS approaches.
Electronic Approach Charts & Airport Diagrams
Avidyne Atlas’ innovative implementation of Jeppesen’s chart services displays electronic terminal and approach charts and airport diagrams and includes a geo-referenced overlay of ownship present position and current flight plan. With one-button access to the worldwide library of Jeppessen ® electronic charts and airport diagrams, Avidyne Atlas dramatically reduces the pilot workload and enhances situational awareness. Charts databases are quickly and can be easily updated via the USB port on the Atlas bezel using
virtually any standard USB memory stick.

Flight Planning Made Easy
Entering and editing Flight Plans has never been easier than with the Avidyne Atlas. It features easy-to-use flight planning with ‘one-touch’ victor airway and jet-route navigation, Avidyne’s exclusive GeoFill™ waypoint nomination, and full autopilot integration. Easy clearance-language flight plan entry, including SIDS and STARS, Procedure Previews, one-touch Holds, and rubberband flight plan editing, reduce workload and heads-down time. Avidyne Atlas can store up to 99 flight plans of 128 waypoints each for quick access, and up to 1,0000 LAT/LON and Rho/Theta-defined User Waypoints. Its cross-fill capability seamlessly automates the process of synchronizing flight plans in dual FMS installations.

Integrated VHF Communication & Navigation
The Avidyne Atlas provides an optional integrated VHF communication and navigation radio in the same small enclosure. VHF communication capability provides a powerful 16-watt transceiver with frequency nomination and station identification. It also includes the ability to monitor the standby channel at the same time as the active channel.
The integrated VHF navigation system provides VOR navigation, as well as localizer and glide slope approach capability, which is fully integrated and automated with the FMS. It automatically decodes the identification of VORs and localizers, and insures that the proper frequency is tuned as part of the automated approach process.
Powerful 16-watt transceiver with frequency nomination and station identification
Monitor stand-by channel while monitoring active channel
Provides VOR navigation, localizer and glideslope approach capabilities
All Avidyne Atlas systems include integrated WiFi and Bluetooth®
connectivity. Numerous tablet application developers support the
Avidyne Atlas wireless protocol. Foreflight® and many other apps
are capable of receiving GPS position, ADS-B weather and traffic, XM
Weather, and other data from the Atlas system. Integrated wireless
connectivity allows pilots to transfer flight plans from tablet Apps
including ForeFlight. Imagine being able to plan a flight, file a flight
plan, get a clearance, and transfer the flight plan to your FMS,
seamlessly. And all Atlas systems have a built-in USB charger
so you can insure your devices have adequate battery levels.
Exclusive Avidyne GLAS™ Functionality
Avidyne GPS Legacy Avionics Support (GLAS) provides a direct interface to legacy Collins Proline 21 and Honeywell Primus EFIS systems for vertical guidance during approach operations. The unique integration capability enables EFISs certified before the availability of LPV approaches to have coupled approach guidance on these and other SBAS approaches.
Optional interface for BendixKing RDR2000-series digital radar systems, including support for Vertical Profile™, and can replace legacy radar indicators or act as a repeater display with certain EFIS systems for added redundancy.
Options include the ability to display RS-170 video using any compatible camera or video source.
