Voice & Text Communications
Combined with Scorpio Base Station to allow HQ to monitor aircraft assets and it’s targets
SCORPIO® Mission Computer B is way ahead of its class in the market in terms of Technology. It primary purpose is to provide Voice and Data communications via Satcom for beyond Line of Sight (LOS) requirements.
On board the aircraft, the MCU-B is an integral part of the Scorpio Mission System provides the integration of Radar and Automatic Identification System (AIS) targets throughout the whole mission system that present a “Situation Awareness” that maybe beyond any available Mission Computer today or in years to come.
The Satcom transmits data in 3 main forms:
Flight Follow – At a predetermined interval, the MCU-B will transmit details of the aircraft such as present position, heading and speed.
Flight Follow Plus (FFP) – MCU-B sends aircraft Flight Follow information plus if fitted all radar, ADS-B and AIS target information at that point in time to the Base Station
Emergency Flight Follow (EFF) – This transmits the Flight Follow information but at a higher data rate.
