Genesys Aerosystems’ GCP Certified
Genesys Control Panel (GCP®) Receives FAA TSO
Mineral Wells, TX (Nov 15, 2023) – Genesys Aerosystems, a Moog Inc. company, announced today that its Genesys Control Panel (GCP) received FAA TSO approval on October 18, 2023.
The Genesys Control Panel is two products in one which can control COMM radios, tactical radios, DME, ADF, transponder, HF, etc. The first being a stand-alone panel-mount radio controller connected directly to the Genesys Digital Radio (GDR®). The second being a Communications Display Unit (CDU) when paired with Genesys’ IDU-680 based EFIS glass cockpit. Up to 5 GCPs can connect to the glass cockpit with EFIS radio controls replicated on each GCP.
The GCP provides dedicated controls for frequently needed audio/radio controls, as well as additional controls for selecting and setting control parameters. The GCP is designed for both fixed-wing and helicopter aircraft applications and is NVG compatible for night operations.
“Genesys is excited to add the GCP to our product portfolio. In one small package we are able to provide both a multi-function CDU when connected to the Genesys Avionics Suite™ and a GDR digital radio package when installed in federated cockpits.” states John Filmonchik, Director of Radio Products for Genesys Aerosystems.
About the Genesys Control Panel
The GCP consists of a 48-character LED (4 row X 12 column dot matrix) display, with a numeric keypad equipped with 13 soft-key buttons and a dual concentric encoder knob with a center push function. The GCP is a “dumb” terminal, which reports the activation of the encoders and buttons to the external GDR or IDU product over a serial bus. The processed results are returned over the serial bus and displayed on the GCP LED display.
