General

LAY08521 - L1502T0 - LM44P1CIDS00001

The CIDS (Cabin Intercommunication Data System) is the cabin core


system. It fulfills an easy interface with some aircraft and cabin support
systems for the cabin crew, the passengers, the maintenance personnel
and the cockpit crew. The CIDS lets them accomplish the functional
control, the testing and the monitoring of these systems through the
following four functions:
- Communication,
- Indicating,
- Control,
- Others.

Crew Signalling And Alerting

Communication Functions
The CIDS has several communication functions, which are:
- Passenger Address
- Cabin interphone
- Service interphone
- Crew signalling and alerting

PA
The Passenger Address (PA) is one of the main functions of the CIDS.
It supplies one way voice communication to do announcements from
the cockpit or from a cabin crew station to the passengers. These
announcements are initiated from the cockpit using either a handset
or acoustic devices and from the cabin using cabin crew stations
handsets. They are then broadcasted to the passengers either through
passengers headsets via In Flight entertainment (IFE) and through all
cabin loudspeakers. A PA announcement can be direct or prerecorded
voice information and it can also be used to supply prerecorded music.

There are different kinds of cockpit and cabin crew signaling and
alerting functions depending on the situation.
The "area ready" function lets the cabin crew inform the purser that
a dedicated cabin area is ready for takeoff/landing. This function is
activated thanks to the FAPs and the optional MINI-FAPs.
The "cabin ready" signaling function lets the purser inform the cockpit
crew that all the cabin areas are ready for takeoff/landing. This function
is activated thanks to the FAPs.
The optional "sterile cockpit" lets the cockpit crew inform the purser
that they do not want to be disturbed. This function is activated by
the cockpit crew through a sterile cockpit P/B.
The optional Emergency Crew Alerting System (ECAS) is used to
indicate an unusual behaviour in cabin or cockpit. This function is
activated from the cabin thanks to a cabin alert P/B and from the
cockpit via a cockpit alert P/B.

LAY08521 - L1502T0 - LM44P1CIDS00001

Cabin Interphone
The cabin interphone system is used for communication between all
cabin crew stations or between the cockpit and the cabin crew stations.
From the cockpit the communication is established via the cockpit
handset or via acoustic device. From the cabin the communication is
established via any cabin crew station handset.

Service Interphone
The service interphone system is used, on ground only, for
communications between the service interphone jacks or between the
service interphone jacks, the cockpit and the cabin crew stations. The
service interphone jacks are located within the major service areas.

General

LAY08521 - L1502T0 - LM44P2IFE000001

The In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) system is an optional system, installed


within the cabin on customer request. The IFE system gives mainly to
the passenger entertainment supported by the audio, the optional video,
the optional interactive functions ('such as games, shopping, and internet)
and the optional telephone. These functions are controlled by the cabin
crew, the passengers, and/or automatically according to A/C system data.
The PAX service system lets the passengers control from their seat some
functions of other A/C systems such as CIDS PAX call or PAX reading
lights.

IN-FLIGHT ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM PRESENTATION (1)


Note: The Human Machine Interface (HMI) of a control console is
made of a touch screen.

System Architecture Overview


The IFE system architecture is based on a modular concept, which gives
a platform for various entertainment systems from different vendors in
an add-on principle. It offers flexibility and adaptability for customized
configuration. This system is basically composed of three main parts: the
IFE Center (IFEC), an IFE control panel and a cabin network.

IFEC
The IFEC is located in the upper avionic bay. It is made of one or two
racks (IFEC rack 2 is optional) which contains the IFE system head
end equipment. It is composed of computers, video/audio sources,
files servers and third party equipment. The IFEC manages the whole
IFE system and is the interface with the cabin network, the A/C
systems, the CIDS, and the optional cabin workstation.

LAY08521 - L1502T0 - LM44P2IFE000001

IFE control panel, cabin workstation and RCC


The IFE control panel supplies a centralized control and monitoring
of the whole IFE system for the cabin attendants. It is an application,
which may run either as one of the FAP application or hosted in an
optional and specific device called control console. Note that the FAP
may be located within an optional cabin workstation while the control
console is located either within the optional cabin workstation or
within an optional Remote Control Center (RCC).
The IFE control panel controls other optional equipment such as
additional audio/video sources (except in RCC), fax unit, data loader,
credit card reader, etc...
The cabin workstation when installed is the main working area of the
purser and offers the centralized operation for IFE, CIDS, cabin
logbook, email, PAX profile and electronic documentation. In addition
to or instead of the cabin workstation, the RCC when installed offers
an additional limited IFE control through an other control console.

ATA 44 Cabin Systems

Cabin Network
The cabin network supplies audio, video, data, telephone and up
loadable software to the passenger seats equipment. It supplies also
video data to the overhead or wall mounted video equipment.
It comprises:
- The cabin distribution network, which is composed of Area
Distribution Boxes (ADBs) (a maximum of 12 can be installed). They
facilitate the distribution of the cabin network data to and from the
passengers seats via the seat network and to the overhead video
equipment via the overhead network. Moreover the ADBs give the
connection of RCC to the cabin distribution enabling the cabin staff
to control the IFE system from locations other than the cabin
workstation :
- The overhead network, which is composed of Tapping Units (TUs).
Each one is able to supply video and power to 3 overheads or wall
mounted DUs
- The seat network, which is composed of Floor Disconnect Boxes
(FDBs) and Seat Electronic Boxes (SEBs). It exchanges data between
the cabin distribution network and the seat equipment.

Pax Service System

LAY08521 - L1502T0 - LM44P2IFE000001

In baseline configuration the PAX service system functions give reading


light and attendant call control to the passengers. Each Passenger Service
Unit (PSU) reading light and attendant call light is controlled from the
related PCU. This control is done via the cabin network, the IFEC and
the CIDS.

Telephone (Optional)
In seat telephone
The In-Seat Telephone function supplies the cabin internal seat-to-seat
communication, and air to ground communication (voice and data).
The telephone handset is integrated in the passenger seat but it can
also be integrated in the optional crew rest compartments. The
telephone handset is connected to the IFEC via the seat and cabin
distribution networks.
The air to ground communication is then established via the telephone
function in the IFEC and via the SATCOM system. As an airline
option, the seats may be equipped with a credit card reader (e.g.:
payment of telephone communications).

Wall mounted telephone

LAY08521 - L1502T0 - LM44P2IFE000001

The wall mounted telephone function supplies telephone


communication for wall-mounted telephones and fax. The telephone
or fax station are connected to the IFEC via a seat network and the
cabin distribution network. The air to ground communication is then
established via the telephone function and via the SATCOM system.

General

LAY08521 - L1502T0 - LM44P3VIDEO0001

The cabin monitoring system is composed of the optional Cockpit Door


Surveillance System (CDSS) and of the optional Cabin Video Monitoring
System (CVMS).
The CDSS is designed to help the cockpit crew to identify a person
requesting entrance to the cockpit and to survey the doors 1 hidden cross
section via video camera observation.
The CVMS is mainly designed to help the cabin and cockpit crew in
video surveillance of the whole cabin (main and upper deck) and of some
other areas like the staircases, the crew rest areas and the lower deck
facilities. The CVMS is installed to detect unruly passengers, suspicious
behaviors or other potential threats occurring in these areas.
