SATCOM

Airborne connectivity is evolving at an increasing rate to keep up with new demands to supply the cockpit, crews, and passengers with secure and reliable voice and high speed data communications. Satellite communications (SATCOM) are enabling continuous connectivity anywhere in the world. Performance has been providing innovative SATCOM solutions and engineering services both in airborne SATCOM equipment and applications that interface with satellite ground stations.

Performance developed and hosted a high reliability ground-to-air call server for negotiated call routing over both Inmarsat and Iridium channels providing fast, first-call connection with the reliability and clarity of digital connectivity. The development included an innovative ACARS GNS interface to track planes location for fastest Inmarsat routing to Region/Ground stations and supported Classic Aero\Swift64 Inmarsat CEPT-E1 or ISDN Call and Fax connections.

Providing depth and a broad base of engineering expertise and leadership for both DO-178B/C avionics and defense SATCOM project needs, Performance team’s are self-driven and highly motivated to get the work done right the first time and beat tough schedule deadlines.

Emerging technologies and networks such as Inmarsat Global Xpress Ka-band, Iridium NEXT, and Ku-band are bringing the higher speed connections needed to bring new safety and in-flight communication (IFC) to market. Whether the need is for next generation platforms supporting satellite based ADS-B, new streaming of ACARS, health management, or Flight Data (FDR) / Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR) data via SATCOM for increased safety and operational efficiencies, continued bandwidth and security increases for cabin in-flight productivity, Performance has the engineering talent to help make your projects successful.
