Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) Initiative
The Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) initiative directly supports the following two DCO Objectives: (1) Improve Maritime Response SAR Planning and Environmental Response Capabilities and (2) Enhance Operational and Deployable C4ISR Capabilities and Competencies. It will achieve substantial performance improvement in the aircrew’s ability to execute rapidly changing operational tasking in an ever increasing complex airspace system.
The Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) is an electronic information management device that helps flight crews to perform flight management tasks more easily and efficiently with less paper. It is a general purpose computing platform intended to reduce, or replace, paper-based reference material often found in the pilot's carry-on flight bag and/or stored on the aircraft.
