Dassault has selected Honeywell to supply a communications gateway (CG-710) and multi-channel satcom systems (MCS-7120) for all Falcon 900 and 2000 series business jets and the Falcon 7X. The technology is intended to provide a bridge between passengers and their laptops, as well as voice-over-IP calling capability and BlackBerry e-mail access. The system will provide benefits for pilots, too. Using a proprietary databus, the CG-710 gateway eliminates the need for a telephone handset in the cockpit, noted Ken Snodgrass, Honeywell v-p of technical sales. “With our AV-900 cockpit audio panel, flight crews will be able to make or receive telephone calls using their aircraft headsets instead of a traditional telephone,” he said. Deliveries of the products will begin in the third quarter, according to Honeywell.
