The DL150, a TSO-159b approved unit, meets AC20-140B guidance as an SDU for any aircraft needing to be FANS 1/A+ compliant. The Iridium network is an ideal choice for global CPDLC, supporting the reliable delivery of data anywhere on the planet, including the poles
Reliable global reach with the Iridium satellite network
Equip for CPDLC & ADS-C to meet 2020 FANS 1/A+ mandates
Ensure continued access to preferential NAT route
Small form factor, reliable and cost effective
Supporting CPDLC, ADS-C, and ACARS satellite data link services, Latitude’s DL150 enables satellite connectivity for Future Air Navigation Systems (FANS 1/A+). Meeting AC20-140B guidelines, the DL150 allows the capture and retransmission of satcom messages required for a FANS compliant FMS via ARINC 741 interfacing. Already scheduled into operation, ATCs will continue to limit busy and favorable routes to FANS-equipped aircraft approaching its 2020 implementation date.
The DL150 FANS Data Link unit is a lightweight multi-function Satellite Data Unit (SDU) that can be complemented with Latitude’s TSO’d single channel Air Traffic Services (ATS) Safety Voice unit, the SkyNode S200-012. The DL150 is a design approved Next Generation Satellite Services System (NGSS) and is unique in that it can be configured as a fully independent flight tracking and event reporting device.
