First ESTC Project Underway in Europe

 - May 16, 2012, 12:15 AM

Universal Avionics (Stand 639) has contributed a UniLink UL-800/801 communications management system for installation in a Swiss-based Bombardier Challenger CL-601 that frequently travels along North Atlantic tracks helping to test the Future Air Navigation System (Fans), which is beginning to be utilized by Eurocontrol. The UniLink box is in full compliance with Fans standards.

The UL-800/801 can transmit and receive data via digital radio or Satcom, depending upon geographic location, which helps to keep operating costs down. The system installation is currently underway and should receive a European Aviation Safety Agency supplemental type certificate (STC) soon.
