ACARS over Iridium

ACARS over Iridium + Future Ready

MCDU DIALING, INTEGRATED COCKPIT AUDIO, REMOTELY PROGRAMMABLE, FANS & CPDLC MESSAGING, EFB IN-FLIGHT CAPABILITY (INCLUDING iPad)

FLYHT’s AFIRS 228 Iridium Global Communications System provides aircraft crew with reliable voice and data services for ATS, AOC, and AAC communications using Iridium’s global satellite network. The AFIRS 228 has 2 Iridium channels. One transceiver provides global voice and data communications using standard Satcom cockpit controls from the Audio Control Panel and the MCDU. The second modem is dedicated to datalink services using standard ACARS and FANS message sets (E.G. CPDLC and ADS-C).

The AFIRS 228 offers telecom flexibility via conventional 2-wire “Tip and Ring” telephony devices. Up to 2 wired or 8 cordless handsets can be added in the cabin providing intercom, call transfer, conference calling, camp-on calling and noise cancelling features. This provides the crew with worldwide access to MedLink or other emergency medical services.

A separate Aircraft Configuration Module contains the AFIRS 228 SIM card, system configuration information and user-stored information (E.G. phone lists) to simplify the process if a unit needs to be replaced.

The AFIRS 228 system meets all the certifications and performance standards necessary to support installation on any aircraft model.

THE DEVICE IS FUTURE READY
The AFIRS 228 offers a modern 533 MHz processor, 1.5 million gate FPGA for data acquisition, and advanced digital signal processing capabilities combined with a certified, fully-partitioned LynxOS™ Real-Time Operating System. Dual redundant 16 GB flash memory cards provide robust data storage.

The AFIRS 228 has extensive and expandable interface capabilities that allow it to connect to numerous aircraft systems. It functions as a Quick Access Recorder and can use wireless links to transfer its stored FDM data. It can also connect to EFBs and provide your applications with real-time data connectivity, both on the ground and in the air.
