TrueNorth Avionics units receives FAA TSO

TrueNorth Avionics’ Simphonē FANS-1/A+ Data Link Unitplus has received an FAA TSO.

“TrueNorth is the first company that can now offer a FOI FANS-1/A compliant system with the TSO certification, and it’s an important achievement,” said TrueNorth CEO Mark van Berkel. “Our DLU already has a number of STCs under its belt. With this TSO certification, more aircraft owners can more readily get this equipment installed and benefit from more efficient routes, and the critical safety features associated with FANS-1/A compliance.”

A FANS-1/A data link unit simplifies pilot to controller communication, reduces communications error, and increases efficiency. TrueNorth’s Simphonē FANS-1/A DLU is a standalone component with DO-178B Level D software. The lightweight unit features a built-in Iridium transceiver with a small footprint. As operators who fly trans-oceanic routes understand, qualified data link communication capability is becoming more and more important, with increasing commercial and business jet traffic, and is an essential ingredient in achieving FANS 1/A compliance.

In addition to receiving FAA TSO authorization, the TrueNorth DLU has also been successfully tested with Universal Avionics UniLink UL-800/801 Communications Management Unit (CMU). Carey Miller, Manager of Business Development for Universal Avionics said, “this will be a great FANS 1/A Iridium Satcom solution for operators who already have a Satcom voice system installed on the aircraft.”
