Cobham Gets Major Contract For Light Inmarsat Satcom

Cobham Aerospace Communications announced that it has been awarded a contract by Airbus to supply its new Inmarsat SB200 Evolution service (Class 4) Safety System known as the AVIATOR 200S and 700S for the Single Aisle & Long Range aircraft families.

The major contract, which will see aircraft being fitted with this communications technology from 2018, could be worth some USD $200 million with the potential for additional revenue, as the demand for Satcom capability on board aircraft increases.

The Aviator 200S shipset aims at providing voice and data air-ground communication for the Aircraft Control Domain (ACD) and the Airline Information Services Domain (AISD) as well as to the Passenger Information and Entertainment Services Domain (PIESD) in its alternate configuration (AVIATOR 700S). It connects ACD applications to high-priority air-ground communication channels for regulated communications between pilots and Air Traffic Control, as well as providing independent air-ground communications for other aircraft systems such as Electronic Flight-Bags (EFBs), in-flight entertainment, cabin distribution and other connected off-board networks.
