Cobham and Inmarsat solution extended to United Airlines’ Boeing 737NG

Posted 2 October 2018 · Add Comment

New STC for AVIATOR 300D system will enable Inmarsat SB-S connected flight deck for enhanced operational efficiencies, improved communications and real-time updates

Cobham Aerospace Communications and Inmarsat have announced entering into a contract for the certification of the AVIATOR 300D satellite communication system on Boeing 737NG aircraft.

The new STC for the Cobham solution will enable United Airlines to extend Inmarsat’s SB-S satellite IP platform to more of its fleet, bringing the airline more operational efficiencies from the connected flight deck.

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.

For the last year, United Airlines has been utilising Cobham’s AVIATOR 300D satcom and Inmarsat’s SB-S IP broadband platform 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.

Brian Anderson, Americas Air Transport Sales Manager for Cobham, said: “Following the much-anticipated launch of SB-S into commercial service earlier this year, this new STC will add to the growing support from airlines and partners as further evidence that the Cobham AVIATOR and Inmarsat SB-S IP platform is the preferred communication technology solution that will meet the needs of the aviation community in the years ahead..”

John Broughton, Vice President, Safety and Operational Services, Inmarsat Aviation said: “United Airlines is a key partner to Inmarsat and Cobham in the digital transformation of today’s aviation industry through market-leading operational connectivity. We are extremely pleased that United Airlines is now extending the benefits of Inmarsat’s IP broadband platform and Cobham’s AVIATOR solution to this new class of aircraft, enabling United to optimise fleet performance and improve efficiency.”

The AVIATOR 300D and 350D systems provide fast and reliable connectivity on the Inmarsat satellite network, delivering high speed broadband to the cockpit while maintaining security through secure ACARS gateways, allowing value-added operational applications over broadband IP and safe and speedy ACARS/FANS communications.

Inmarsat’s SB-S is the first and only global, secure broadband platform for operational and safety communications. It offers airlines visibility into their operations through dedicated IP connectivity between the aircraft and the ground. SB-S applications utilise real-time data to improve asset utilisation, reduce fuel and emissions and assure the highest levels of safety in the skies. These include flight tracking, real-time graphical weather, optimised flight profiles and real-time aircraft performance monitoring.

LONDON (Alliance News) - Shares in satellite communications firm Inmarsat PLC on Thursday ended as the best performer in the FTSE 250, after Reuters reported US rival EchoStar Corp is planning a fresh approach for the firm.
Shares in Inmarsat closed up 6.0% at 399.80 pence on Thursday, while EchoStar shares were down 0.7% in New York.
Reuters, citing an article by CTFN M&A news, reported the US satellite group was expected to renew its interest Inmarsat "very soon", and no later than the next six months.
At the beginning of June, Inmarsat confirmed it had rejected a second takeover proposal from EchoStar which it believed "significantly" undervalued the firm. EchoStar subsequently withdrew its interest in Inmarsat.
