Cobham’s AVIATOR 350D SwiftBroadband SATCOM solution combines FANS 1/A safety services and voice connectivity with IP Data capability.
AVIATOR 350D’s built-in ACARS Aero gateway AAGW facilitates messaging over Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband network, providing for cost effective operations. The solution architecture is simple to install with a 2 MCU SBU and “flat pack” HLD and High Gain Antenna with a combined weight under 15.7Kgs (35 lbs). The system’s High Gain Phased Array Antenna (HGA) is one of the lightest in its class.
AVIATOR 350D offers significant size, cost and weight savings over legacy satcom solutions and is an ideal replacement for large Aero H/H+ terminals. The system’s built-in wired and wireless Ethernet connectivity for the cockpit IP network allows for easy interfacing with external devices, such as EFBs, iPads or AIDs during all phases of flight. Cobham AVIATOR 300D was used by the FAA to certify SwiftBroadband-Safety (SB-S), AVIATOR 350D is the same system but with a high gain antenna, offering faster connection speeds. Cobham offers the only SB-S certified products operational today, in service with Hawaiian, United and Shenzhen Airlines.
