Latitude’s Next Gen Satellite Solution Installed on Gulfstream G-III

Latitude Technologies Corporation has announced that its DL150 Datalink SDU has been installed on the Gulfstream G-III to provide CPDLC/FANS/ACARS satellite datalink services. The installation was completed in mid-July 2017 with the issuance of the FAA/STC expected by the end of October 2017. The DL150 was interfaced to the Universal Avionics UNS-1/UL-801 UniLink System. The company’s SkyNode S200 was also installed with an RC6000/A Control and Display Panel to enhance flight deck communication and add a global SATVOICE Long Range Communications System (LRCS) capability to the cockpit. The systems were installed on an undisclosed Gulfstream fleet operator and paves the way for the scheduled installation of 9 additional aircraft. Latitude’s President, Mark Insley comments “our customers are unique and we pride ourselves on maintaining a leading position in offering effective and cost-efficient solutions. For this customer, adding the Latitude Technologies FANS 1/A+ and voice Satcom terminals to their capabilities with a proven product set solved their need to meet the CPDLC...

Latitude Technologies is a partner with CARIC – Consortium for Aerospace Research and Innovation in Canada

The Consortium has an extensive list of important projects including measuring pilot fatigue to manage pilot performance: "The nature of safety in aerospace has focused in main part on detecting and preventing failure of technology, and today's aircraft report in real-time detailed data to aid in this effort. However, experience has shown that while failures in maintenance and engineering have been greatly reduced, aircraft accidents related to pilot performance is an area of research that has great potential to improve and enhance safety. While aircraft components have been measured and are wired with sensors to monitor various critical components, the most critical component of the flight system and the pilot, has not been. Given the potential for fatigue to impact a pilot's performance and safety, a means of measuring and analyzing that performance against fatigue-inducing elements has potential to fill that gap in aviation safety. This project is a partnership between Conair Group Inc., the University of British Columbia, Okanagan, Camosun College, and...
