China Eastern selects Cobham Aerospace Communications’ Light Cockpit Satcom (LCS) system for its Airbus A320Neo and A321Neo

Cobham Aerospace Communications and China Eastern have confirmed the delivery of the LCS system on China Eastern Airbus A320neo. Cobham Aerospace Communications’ AVIATOR 200S system represents a disruptive evolution in aircraft cockpit communications. Compared to previous legacy systems, AVIATOR 200S offers two separate aircraft communication network domains, up to 80 times the data transfer capacity and approved secure IP based ACARS/SATVOICE safety services with VPN/IPsec. In addition to its extensive communication capabilities, the AVIATOR 200S system offers the best SWaP parameters (size, weight, power) for a Swift Broadband Safety (Inmarsat SB-S 2.0) system. It also supports future i4D/4D trajectory-based operations and ATN over Satcom for continental use (SESAR Iris), FANS 1/A (FAA NextGen) and PBCS for oceanic routes.
