Innovative Solutions and Support, Inc. (the "Company," "IS&S," "we" or "us") was incorporated in Pennsylvania on February 12, 1988. The Company operates in one business segment as a systems integrator that designs, develops, manufactures, sells and services air data equipment, engine display systems, standby equipment, primary flight guidance, autothrottles and cockpit display systems for retrofit applications and original equipment manufacturers ("OEMs"). The Company supplies integrated Flight Management Systems ("FMS"), Flat Panel Display Systems ("FPDS"), Autothrottle Systems, air data equipment, Integrated Standby Units ("ISU") and advanced Global Positioning System ("GPS") receivers that enable reduced carbon footprint navigation.
The Company has continued to position itself as a system integrator, which provides the Company with the capability and potential to generate more substantive orders over a broader product base. This strategy, as both a manufacturer and integrator, is designed to leverage the latest technologies developed for the computer and telecommunications industries into advanced and cost-effective solutions for the general aviation, commercial air transport, United States Department of Defense ("DoD")/governmental and foreign military markets. This approach, combined with the Company's industry experience, is designed to enable IS&S to develop high-quality products and systems, to reduce product time to market, and to achieve cost advantages over products offered by its competitors.
For several years the Company has been working with advances in technology to provide pilots with more information to enhance both the safety and efficiency of flying, and has developed its COCKPIT/IP® Cockpit Information Portal ("CIP") product line, that incorporates proprietary technology, low cost, reduced power consumption, decreased weight, and increased functionality. The Company has incorporated Electronic Flight Bag ("EFB") functionality, such as charting and mapping systems, into its FPDS product line.
