Provides Baseline Architecture for Future FANS Upgrade

New Berlin, Wis., USA – EMTEQ has received FAA Supplemental Type Certificates (STC) for installations of an ICG Iridium SATCOM and Rockwell Collins ACARS on a Boeing 767-200/-300/-300F. 

These two STCs install equipment that represents the baseline architecture for future FANS upgrades via OEM Service Bulletin(s).  This system is a comprehensive SATCOM and ACARS communications system that provides the flight crew with voice channels and a dedicated Datalink channel to support ACARS, FANs messaging, and CPDLC. 

The ICG ICS-220A Iridium Satellite Communication (SATCOM) System, ST04139AT, consists of an Iridium Transceiver and a Configuration Identification Module (CIM) installed in the E5 Mid Equipment Shelf, an Iridium SATCOM Antenna installed on the upper fuselage, and replacement of the Audio Select Panels (ASP) with new Gables ASPs with SATCOM selection. Control of the SATCOM is via existing, capable Flight Management System (FMS) Multi-function Control Display Units (MCDU).

The Rockwell Collins CMU-900 Aircraft Communication Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS), ST04140AT, consists of a Communication Management Unit (CMU) and an Aircraft Personality Module (APM) installed in the avionics compartment, replacement of the existing Center Very High Frequency (VHF) Communication Transceiver, a Multi-Function Data Printer installed in the pedestal, and replacement of the Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) and Panel with a Solid State Cockpit Voice Recorder (SSCVR) and associated Cockpit Voice Recorder Microphone Monitor Panel (CVRMMP) capable of recording datalink messages. Configurations are available for aircraft with or without existing ACARS provisions.
