Cobham Aerospace Communications & L2 Aviation Announce Partnership for AVIATOR S STC

Cobham Aerospace Communications and L2 Aviation have entered into an agreement for L2 to develop and deliver a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) package for Cobham’s AVIATOR 200S SwiftBroadband Satcom System.  This AVIATOR 200S configuration will ultimately be installed on end-user Boeing 777 aircraft. 

The system, when installed, will provide:

  • Visual and audible notification of inbound SATVOICE calls.
  • Visual and audible (chime) notification of inbound data link messages.
  • Priority/pre-emptive dialing for SATVOICE from the MCDU SATCOM menu.
  • Priority of call notification (chime) for both inbound and outbound SATVOICE calls.
  • Verification of FANS performance.
  • Interface to AISD domain (provision).
  • Interface for A615A Data Loader with data load enable switch.

Cobham’s AVIATOR S compact design is suitable for all single-aisle and wide-bodied aircraft.  It’s faster to install and configure, compatible with all Inmarsat L-band antenna systems, and reduces the number of LRUs down to two, saving weight and space.
