L2 Aviation has received an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the installation of the Rockwell Collins
Iridium SATCOM system on A330-200 and A330-300 aircraft.
While L2 has achieved similar STCs for the Iridium SATCOM installation on other airframes (including the 737, 747, 757, 767 and 777), this latest STC represents the first Iridium ICS-220A/IRT-2120 approval for Air Traffic Service
(ATS) Safety Voice service.
The Safety Voice service provides aircraft operators with an alternative to existing HF radio systems, replacing one with a secure satellite-based option for long-range communications. The Iridium SATCOM installation includes single and dual channel, ATS Safety Voice, and data link capability.
Additionally, L2’s design for this STC also incorporates a multi-purpose doubler provisions that will allow the installation of either the Inmarsat HELGA, Low Gain Inmarsat antenna and an ALGA antenna, defined by ARINC 771, supporting Iridium Certus services without having to make additional structural modifications to the aircraft.Email Post to a Friend
