Interactive Electronic Technical Manual (IETM)

Sikorsky's IETM is a portable, electronic "library" which contains thousands of pages of maintenance documentation and illustrations. It is used to locate required technical information faster than is possible with a paper manual and allows you to navigate through extensive amounts of information quickly and easily.

The IETM supported features include:

  • simple, intuitive user interface
  • complete hyper-linked table of contents
  • detailed search capabilities
  • hyperlinks to referenced text and illustrations
  • intelligent schematics
  • dynamically-generated electronic work cards for scheduled maintenance and inspection tasks
  • animations and 3-D interactive graphics
  • bookmarks and notes
  • historical record of source data incorporated
  • print capability

The IETM can be:

  • used directly from a CD-ROM/DVD
  • installed directly to a local computer hard drive (including a hand-held palm pilot-type device)
  • distributed as a web application over a secure network website
  • updated with data, graphics and/or software via CD/DVD or over a network website

The IETM can be integrated with:

  • Advanced Ground-based Diagnostics
  • Pilot Debrief Module (PDM)
  • Ground Support Equipment (GSE)
  • Plug/Work Zone Locator Application (PLA)
  • Web-based Training Applications (WBT)
  • Maintenance Management Systems (for ex. HELOTRAC RL®)
  • Parts/Supply Ordering Systems
  • External Files
