Universal Avionics (Booth No. 4254) unveiled the UL-800/801 communications management system, developed to be compatible with Future Air Navigation System (FANS) and VHF datalink (VDL) Mode 2 capabilities for digital communications between pilots and ATC. Designed to be compliant with FANS 1/A standards, the Universal communications management unit will enable future controller-pilot datalink communications, touted as a cornerstone to the FAA’s NextGen and Eurocontrol’s Link 2000+ operating environments. The system includes a VHF data radio that enables pilots to send and receive text messages in flight. The UniLink UL-800 and UL-801 products will be available in next year’s third quarter, according to Tuscon, Ariz.-based Universal Avionics.
