FocusFlite® 

Airborne Digital Moving Map System

FocusFlite GS
One planning solution for all platforms

FocusFlite® GS (Ground Station) helps pilots to review/prepare their mission plans with high precision and accuracy thanks to the 2D/3D planning capabilities it provides for different platforms.
With its extensible and adaptable mission planning infrastructure, platform-specific capabilities such as performance calculations can be easily added.
Intuitive, fast and responsive human-machine interface of the program has been developed, supported by usability tests.

FocusFlite® GS capabilities can be used on consoles, desktop stations and portable platforms.
