satLINK provides an Iridium™ satellite-based data communications alternative in the absence of HF, VHF or Inmarsat™ system coverage. Truly global, reliable, affordable, real-time data and voice communications are finally possible.
Flexible Configuration: The requirements of commercial air transport differ from those of general aviation, but Avionica has Iridium™ solutions for everyone. From a basic voice communications handset to a fully integrated voice and data messaging system, we can fulfill your requirements. Avionica solutions include both single voice/single data and single voice/dual data modules. These may be further configured in pairs to provide commercial air transport-class dual-redundant solutions with dual voice/dual data or dual voice/quad data channels.
Comprehensive Integration: No additional controls, handsets, or displays are required. satLINK integrates directly into the aircraft’s existing Audio Control Panel. satLINK is a plug-in replacement for your ARINC 741 (e.g. Inmarsat) SDU, and provides dialing capability via the aircraft’s existing ARINC 739 MCDU or ACARS IDU. The same interfaces can also be used for data messaging, routable over the aircraft’s existing ARINC 724/758 MU/CMU. Status and annunciation are accomplished over the existing EICAS system. Cockpit handsets are available to provide programming and dialing capabilities where MCDUs are unavailable, as is our MCDU emulation software for use on EFBs.
Part of the Wired Aircraft: satLINK is a component of Avionica’s Wired Aircraft concept. It provides three 10/100 Mbit switched Ethernet ports for connections to EFBs or QARs, and even an 802.11 access point available as a CWLU or TWLU. When configured as a CWLU, satLINK supports multiple 802.11 VoIP cabin handsets with call-monitoring, forwarding, and intercom, as well as traditional 802.11-enabled data devices.
A Certified Solution: Avionica understands that an innovative product is only part of the solution. Avionica already holds STCs for satLINK on the Boeing 737, 757, and 767. We are also proud to have been selected for the Boeing 787 test fleet.
