CMC Electronics has upgraded a Qantas Boeing 747-300 with its CMA-900 flight management system (FMS), triple inertial reference systems and Electronic Horizontal Situation Indicator, the first of six -300s to be upgraded for the Australian carrier. The Canadian company's CMA-2102 high-gain satellite communications antenna is also fitted as part of the avionics upgrade with the GPS-based FMS. Qantas's configuration will allow it to make use of FANS-1 equivalent datalink functions on the 747s.
