GEC-Marconi Avionics has been supplying Slats and Flaps 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 software which is compiled using a different language written by different software teams.
