L2 Consulting Services, Inc. (L2) has received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB) to install the Iridium Satellite Communications System on Boeing 737-700 and 737-800 aircraft.
Dean Rudolph, VP operations at L2, said, “L2 now holds FAA, EASA, Transport Canada, CAAC and JCAB approvals for our modular, multiple configuration 737 satcom solution.”
L2 developed the engineering, produced the installation kits and managed the JCAB STC regulatory process to ensure a successful integration for an undisclosed Japanese operator.
The original Federal Aviation Administration STC (ST10928SC) was certified by L2 for both the ICG NxtLink ICS-220A and Rockwell Collins IRT-2120 Iridium satcom systems. The NxtLink ICS-220A and IRT-2120 devices are a communications system that provides the flight crew with a dedicated Data Link channel; Aircraft Communications and Reporting System (ACARS), FANs messaging, Controller – Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) and an exclusive global voice channel.
L2 also holds existing Iridium certifications on B747, B757, and B767 aircraft.
