7500th SFCC


GEC-Marconi Avionics has been supplying Slats and Flaps Control Computers (SFCCs) to Liebherr Aero Technik as part of the Slat/Flap Control System for the Airbus A310 and A300-600 since the early 1980s. The slat/flap control computer provides the electronic control for the slats and flaps of a fully fly-by-wire secondary flight control system. Two 6 MCU units are fitted to each aircraft and in the event of failure of one computer, the system continues to operate satisfactorily to provide the operator with an extremely high availability. To provide maximum integrity the software in the two units is different and compiled using a different language written by different software teams.
The SFCCs have been in service on the wide bodied Airbus since 1983 with over 7,500 computers supplied. The mature MTBF has reached over 20,000 operating hours.
This engraved block has a globe set in and the legends given above. The block has a smart blue lined case.
The given dimensions are for the award alone. In its presentation box it is 104 x 70 x 102 mm & 400g.
