The product will offer a system which works over satellite in all weather and at relatively high data-rates using easy to install and inexpensive hardware compliant to a very robust and reliable communication network.
The system features both versatile and compact mechanically steered SatCom antennas as well as slender aerodynamically optimized phased-array antenna systems together with an ARINC-600 / 2 MCU SCOTTY Satellite Data Unit (SDU) which is optimized for the L-Band THURAYA Aero network. This DO-160G, GMR-1 - RF-Qual, and DO-254 certified hardware transmits and receives non-safety related Cockpit-Service information and can be later adapted for Safety-Services related use.
The architecture of the system begins with the on board hardware:
And continues with the overall communication infrastructure:
There are Technology, Product, Demonstration/Trials and Definition phases in scope of the activity.
The project's first objective in Phase 1 is to complete the development a working and reliable L-Band THURAYA Aero product portfolio. The project's second and main objective in Phase 2 is to enable non-safety related Cockpit-Services with the SatCom equipment. The project's third objective in Phase 3 is to start evaluating Safety-Services which are related to air traffic control communication and may interface with flight-critical parts of the aircraft.
Phase 1 of the project is completed. Technology development work for Phase 2 is underway.
