Readiness Page

The following article is based on 193377 Revision B software, for older revisions scroll to the bottom of this page.

The Readiness page displays automatically when a system software or hardware component failure occurs on the RTD.

  • Red indicates a component is failed or offline.
  • Green indicates a component is running correctly.

The following optional components are displayed on the Readiness page.

  • Raptor Host software processes all the flight computations and manages the sound functions. Host software communicates with all software components installed in the RTD.
  • Griffon Host software manages the hardware I/O (input/output) and garmin avionics. Griffon Host software communicates with all CAN devices by sending packets over Ethernet to the ETC+ (Ethernet to CAN) Module.
  • Prepar3D is responsible for generating the out-of-the-cockpit view for the display system.
  • CGI (Computer Generated Instruments) software generates the graphics for standby instrumentation on the G1000 model, and the instrumenatation for the steam gauge model.
  • RealityXP is the Garmin GNS430 Rehost software which manages the GNS430 I/O (input/output).
  • ETC+ Module acts as a gateway providing an interface between Ethernet and CAN Bus. The ETC+ Module is the interface between the Host software and the CAN Bus.
  • Combo Module is typically used for controlling annunciators and solenoids, reading potentiometers for lighting bus dimmers or for control positions, as well as reading switch positions.
  • ADC Module or Analog to Digital Converter Module is typically used to read potentiometers for control positions.
  • RTD Assemblies on the RTD Readiness page include the following optional components.
    • Instrument Panel
    • Avionics Panel
    • G1000 Panel
    • Switch Panel
    • Single Engine Panel
    • Pedals
    • Control Wheel
    • Elevator Trim
