[Avionics Today 09-02-2015] Jeppesen has launched a new service platform for customers to update avionics data, the Jeppesen Distribution Manager (JDM) for Windows. The application provides the gateway for pilots to keep their avionics services up to date, supporting terminal charts for avionics displays, NavData, obstacle, cultural, airport and terrain data.
The former Jeppesen Services Update Manager (JSUM) is being released in a phased approach across the Jeppesen large avionics data services customer base to encourage a seamless transition through a software update.
“Introducing JDM for Windows will improve the data interaction experience for pilots and will simplify the flying experience for those using Jeppesen data with avionics systems,” said Mike Abbott, director of Jeppesen navigation and flight deck programs.
