Cobham Aerospace Communications and Inmarsat have entered into a contract for the certification of Cobham’s AVIATOR 300D satellite communication system on Boeing 737NG aircraft.
The new STC will enable United Airlines to extend Inmarsat’s SB-S satellite IP platform to more of its fleet. For the last year, United has been utilising the solution on its Boeing 767-300 aircraft in the North Atlantic Airspace for communications and surveillance with Controller-Pilot Data Link Communications (CPDLC) and Automatic Dependent Surveillance Contract (ADS-C) messaging.
Developed and owned by Avionics Support Group, Inc. (ASG) for the AVIATOR avionics and Delta G Designs, Inc. (DGD) for the compact Cobham IGA-5001 Intermediate Gain Antenna, the STCs will cover the Boeing 737, NG and MAX aircraft and are expected to be available in early 2019.
