An alliance between Teledyne Controls and DeCrane Aircraft Holdings sets the stage for Teledyne to provide service subscriptions for DeCrane’s developmental e-Cabin.Connect in-flight Internet and e-mail satellite link. The system is designed to provide one-way data at speeds up to 512 kbps, with growth capability to 2 Mbps, using Teledyne’s MagnaStar telephone system or other narrow-band connection devices. A test installation of e-Cabin.Connect is under way in a Gulfstream IV-SP and should be completed next month. Antennas for installation on smaller jets should be available by the end of the year.
