West Star Aviation Announces New STC For Global Express
West Star Aviation now offers an STC for Latitude Technologies Corporation's DL150 satellite data unit (SDU) and Iridium antenna on Bombardier Global Express (BD-700-1A10 and BD-700-1A11) aircraft.
The DL150, a TSO-159b approval unit, is a high-performance ARINC 741 satellite data unit (SDU) for the Iridium network that meets AC20-140B guidance as an SDU for any aircraft needing to be FANS I/A+ compliant. The compact Iridium installation allows the connection of FANS/CPDLC out of VHF coverage after the Inmarsat system has been removed. This offers an optimal solution to operators that want to remove the classic Inmarsat system and replace it with a new, non-safety services KA internet connectivity solution. The Iridium network is an ideal choice for global CPDLC, supporting the reliable delivery of data anywhere.
This installation takes approximately four weeks and can be completed at any of the four full-service West Star Aviation facilities: East Alton, IL (ALN); Grand Junction, CO (GJT); Chattanooga, TN (CHA); and Perryville, MO (PCD).
