EMS SATCOM, Alnair Aerospace Fzc announce European Aviation Safety Agency Certifications
Article Type:Safety topics and notes From: Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology: An International Journal, Volume 21, Issue 6
EMS SATCOM, a division of EMS Technologies, Inc., and Alnair Aerospace Fzc, a UAE-based company, recently announced the award of the first European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) supplemental type certificate (STC) on EMS SATCOM's AMT-3800 High-gain Antenna (AMT-3800) and HSD-440 high-speed data terminal. The antenna and transceiver were tested and certified on an Asia-based Airbus A319 air transport aircraft. The certification tests were successfully performed by Toulouse-based EAD Aerospace, also responsible for obtaining the antenna's EASA STC.
The system, “SBB by Alnair,” integrated by Alnair aerospace, also received a vendor STC approval from the Civil Aviation Administration of China. It provides passengers with world-wide high-speed airborne e-mail, voice, internet and Wi-Fi capabilities at affordable prices. It also provides Inmarsat cockpit safety services and Aero H+voice. Both the AMT-3800 antenna and the HSD-440 terminal are Inmarsat SwiftBroadband type and system approved.
Designed and manufactured by EMS SATCOM, the AMT-3800 high gain, low profile, Inmarsat antenna is a two-LRU solution. That means it is ARINC 781 and ARINC 741 compliant, and holds dual SwiftBroadband Inmarsat type approvals. The antenna is also compliant with multi-channel Aero-H, Swift 64 and SwiftBroadband services, as well as with a large number of communication systems. Certifications are also in place for the Boeing MD-87, B737, BBJ, B757, B767, Global Express, Dash-8 and in process for the Tupolev 204 and Airbus A-340, and A-320; held by EMS SATCOM dealers.
