Inmarsat type approval for Cobham SwiftBroadband products

12th May 2009 - 13:08 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Cobham SATCOM, part of Cobham’s Avionics and Surveillance division, has received Inmarsat type approval for two new SwiftBroadband (SBB) products designed to set new standards in size, weight and power consumption, making them suitable for even the smallest business aircraft.

The products – a single channel class 6 SBB satellite data unit (radio) and the IGA-5001 (an Intermediate Gain Antenna enabling class 7 SBB services) – complement Cobham SATCOM’s range of SBB-approved high gain antennas, such as the HGA-7001, HGA-7000, HGA-6000 and HGA-6500, in use by numerous air transport aircraft and business jets. When combined, these products enable a full range of connectivity options to aircraft, including internet, email, VPN, telephone and fax service.

Additional type approvals for a dual channel class 6 and single channel class 7 SDU are in process, and are expected by the end of June 2009.
