Collins Aero Tests Iridium Certus High-gain Antenna

May 17,2021

Collins Aerospace said its higher-bandwidth Iridium Certus satcom system will be ready to enter service next year after reaching another critical milestone. Recently, the company was able to connect and transmit data to an orbiting Iridium satellite using the Certus service using a high-gain antenna (HGA) affixed to the roof of its Melbourne, Florida-based aerospace lab.

A similar transmission was recorded in August with Collins¡¯s new active low-gain antenna (ALGA). According to Collins, its Certus systems will offer business jet operators with faster data speeds while offering equipment that has lower weight and a smaller antenna footprint versus legacy satcom systems.

¡°This marks our second major milestone in our Iridium Certus development in only six months and is a testament to the hard work and expertise we have dedicated to the goal of bringing our customers the uninterrupted and secure data feeds they need to operate most efficiently,¡± said Collins Aerospace v-p of avionics engineering Leigh Parker. ¡°We are now one step closer to rolling out what we believe will be the premier seamless satcom experience.¡±

With the continuous development and progress of science and technology level and information level, intelligent science has become a new natural discipline, and has attracted extensive interest and research of many researchers. In recent years, with the development of microelectronics technology, computer technology, network technology and sensor technology, more and more attention has been paid to the application of intelligent technology in the field of civil aircraft. It is in this trend of continuous research on intelligent technology that, as civil aircraft and its important airborne system, intelligent avionics system aims to provide technical support for the realization of intelligent aircraft. Its objectives are as follows: (1) to realize intelligent driving of civil aircraft and reduce the burden of flight crew to the greatest extent; (2) to realize intelligent maintenance of civil aircraft and improve flight efficiency It can improve the efficiency of aircraft maintenance, reduce the cost of aircraft maintenance and reduce the workload of maintenance.

Under this background, the 10th Annual Civil Avionics International Forum will be held in the city of Shanghai on June 22nd ¨C 23rd£¬focus on Aviation 14th Five-Year Plan Lay Out, Pay Attention to the Smart Development of Avionics Industry, Improve the Capability of Independent R&D, register your interest or get in touch with marketing@galleon.cc for more details.
