Iridium Partner Collins Aerospace Passes Development Milestone for Iridium Certus

Iridium Communications Inc. partner Collins Aerospace continues to make progress in bringing its new Iridium Certus aviation terminal to market. The company passed a major development milestone and is the first among Iridium Certus aviation partners to connect an aviation-grade antenna, in this case an Active Low-Gain Antenna (ALGA), to the Iridium constellation.

Collins Aerospace’s Iridium Certus solution is designed to meet the connectivity needs of commercial, business and government aircraft. The service will enable a variety of capabilities for cockpit safety, graphical weather, electronic flight bags, enhanced aircraft reporting, and other operational aircraft services for airline and government customers. It will offer this through small form factor antennas currently in testing, and terminals that are ideal for operators of smaller aircraft requiring internet connectivity.

Collins Aerospace was announced as an Iridium service provider for the aviation industry in 2018, and continues to make progress in its solution to enable a faster, more reliable SATCOM experience. Enabled by Iridium’s upgraded constellation, Iridium Certus is a multi-service communications platform that offers the highest speed L-band connectivity and only truly global mobile satellite service on the market.

“Collins Aerospace continues to play a critical role in bringing the next-generation L-band broadband solution to customers around the world,” says Iridium Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Bryan Hartin. “The progress of its Iridium Certus SATCOM solution is paving the way for safer and more connected skies.
