Transport Canada Grants TSO for FTG's Cursor Control Device Avionic Equipment


Reading time ( words)

Firan Technology Group Corp. (FTG), a leading provider of electronic products and avionic sub-systems for the aerospace and defense markets, has received a Canadian Technical Standard Order (CAN-TSO) certification from Transport Canada for its Cursor Control Device (CCD). The CAN-TSO certification can be used for receiving FAA-TSO certification under the bilateral agreement between Canada and the United States. With this design and production approval, production of the CCD can commence.

FTG's CCD is an innovative, customizable, joystick-based design that is an integral part of the Human-Machine-Interface (HMI) in modern avionics. CCDs are utilized by pilots for precision cursor navigation on the aircraft's primary flight displays.

This CAN-TSO will serve as the CCD product certification baseline for other future variants of CCD that are to be built by FTG.

"After achieving this major step, our CCD is now available in the market and ready for production. We have received initial production orders and are excited to move from a design/development phase to production.  We thank our customers for their support and we appreciate their business," stated Brad Bourne, President and CEO, FTG.
