Satcom1, the Denmark-based satellite communications service provider, is here at the NBAA Convention (Booth 4589) as part of a year of globe-trotting international appearances. The company has announced new services, and its research and development department in Paris is working to improve performance for Satcom1 SwiftBroadband customers with recently released new bandwidth solutions.
Electronics specialist Emteq started its involvement in aerospace as a pioneer in the use of LED lighting. It still lays claim to being a leader in this field but has since expanded its technology horizons to encompass a much broader array of cabin systems.
“We saw a real need to provide a more connected cabin and this led us to develop a full suite of solutions that we call eConnect,” explained the U.S. company’s chief marketing officer Rachel Bahr.
Emteq (Booth C7012), of New Berlin, Wis., is introducing the eConnect Plus Program at this year’s NBAA show. The program provides equipment discounts and enhanced customer service incentives for eConnect aircraft connectivity installations on new platforms.
Of all the new products it is has on display at EBACE this year, New Berlin, Wisconsin-based Emteq (Booth 1557) expects the most buzz to be around its eConnect advancements. Since eConnect was introduced in the fourth quarter of 2011, Emteq has continued to update the cabin electronics control system, ensuring it not only will serve as a current top-line CMS/IFE system but can also adapt to future needs.
Emteq has announced retrofit specialist Flying Colours as the launch customer for its new eConnect cabin management system. The equipment will feature in Bombardier CRJ aircraft upgraded by Flying Colours and Emteq also now offering it for retrofit on Airbus A320 family aircraft, including the ACJ models.
Emteq recently introduced two new aircraft cabin power products. The IntelliOutlet simplifies installation without need for an external ground-fault interrupter box, relay and circuit breaker. The IntelliUSB is a convenient power charging port for portable electronic devices that use USB charging and has built-in circuitry for 28-volt DC power, eliminating the need for a converter.
