GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: Aerospace & Defense » Aerospace & Defense
Compare:BA, ERJ, EADSY, HON, GD » details
Innovative Solutions and Support, Inc. was founded in 1988. The Company designs, manufactures and sells flat panel display systems ('FPDS'), flight information computers and advanced monitoring systems that measure and display critical flight information, including data relative to aircraft separation, airspeed, and altitude, and engine and fuel data measurements. The Company's current line of products includes: Flat Panel Display Systems; and Air Data Systems and Components. Flat panel displays are Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screens that can replicate the display of one or a suite of analog or digital displays on one screen. Like other instrumentation, flat panel displays can be installed in new aircraft or used to replace existing displays in aircraft already in use. LCDs are also used for security monitoring on-board aircraft and as tactical workstations on military aircraft. The Company's air data products calculate and display various measures such as aircraft speed, altitude and rate of ascent and descent. These air data system products utilize advanced sensors to gather air pressure data and customized algorithms to interpret data, thus allowing the system to calculate altitude more accurately. The Company's components and systems include: digital air data computers, which calculate various air data parameters such as altitude, airspeed, vertical speed, angle of attack and other information derived from the measure of air pressure; integrated air data computers and display units, which calculate and convey air data information; altitude displays, which convey aircraft altitude measurements; airspeed displays, which convey various types of airspeed measurements including vertical airspeed and rates of ascent and descent; and altitude alerter, which allow the pilot to select a desired cruising altitude that the aircraft will reach and maintain, and also provide warnings to pilots when an unacceptable deviation occurs. The Company sells its products to the retrofit market and to original equipment manufacturers ('OEMs'). Customers include the United States Department of Defense ('DoD'), Department of the Interior ('DOI'), other government agencies, defense contractors, airlines, commercial air transport carriers, aircraft modification centers and various OEMs. The Company's main competitors include Honeywell International Inc., Rockwell Collins, Inc., Thales, and GE Aviation. The Company's products are currently subject to direct regulation by the FAA, its European counterpart, the EASA, and other equivalent organizations.
