Cobham SATCOM has announced the signing of a Technical Service Agreement (TSA) with Boeing for certification of its AVIATOR 600S and 700S systems on Boeing 777 and 737 jetliners.
This is Cobham SATCOM’s first contract with an airplane manufacturer for the AVIATOR S Series, which supports Inmarsat’s new generation SwiftBroadband Safety service.
“This is a defining agreement for AVIATOR S and Cobham SATCOM,” said Kim Gram, vice president of Cobham SATCOM’s aeronautical business unit.
“It is an endorsement for the S Series family by one of the largest aircraft manufacturers in the world, and will make it possible for us to deliver AVIATOR 600S and 700S onto two of the best-selling aircraft flying today, used by airlines around the world.”
Cobham and Boeing will now work together on the design of the 600S and 700S solutions onto the Boeing Next-Generation 737, the 737 MAX, the Boeing 777-300ER and 777X.
Cobham SATCOM’s AVIATOR S product series addresses the growing demand from airlines for continuous non-encrypted secure data exchange between their ground operations and their aircraft with smaller, lighter and more powerful satcom equipment.
