Astronautics’ BP5 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB) is the latest upgrade for the Boeing 787. BP5 is a direct drop-in replacement for the BP4 EFB Electronics Unit (EU) featuring the latest in processor technology, a Windows 10 operating system, and the increased reliability of a solid state drive, resulting in faster application launches, reduced computation times, and faster database loading.
A BP5 retrofit on the 787 requires ZERO aircraft changes. It is 100% backwards compatible with current BP4 EU installations, requiring:
- No downtime for EU removal & replacement
- No changes to rack, harness, wiring, or display units
The new BP5 EFB also has a modular design provisioned for mobile device integration, increased storage capacity, and future processor updates without replacing the entire EU.
