SATCOM Upgrades Tailored for Commercial Aircraft

Flying globally? Upgrading your SATCOM system is an effective way of adding capabilities that will improve efficiency while maintaining safety. We can upgrade your SATCOM system to add voice communications in the cockpit, and internet and IFE (Inflight Entertainment) in the cabin.

Satellite communications systems offer reliable around the globe voice and data capabilities. In the cockpit, pilots gain voice capabilities, while FANS over Iridium (future air navigation system) offers text-based communications to reduce crew stress, and enhance safety. Superior to UHF and VHF radio capabilities, SATCOM can be used well out of ATC range, and are particularly pertinent for oceanic routes. In addition, SATCOM can be a critical tool for medical emergencies or technical trouble shooting.

In the cabin, SATCOM provides high-speed communications that can be used to provide streaming data for IFE and internet access to passengers and crew. The passenger’s need to be connected is driving commercial operators to add internet capabilities to the cabin, for email and web surfing.

The SATCOM ecosystem is complex, but at Mid-Canada Mod Center (MC2), we can help you select the option that works for you, be it SwiftBroadband, Global Xpress, or any number of Iridium services. We offer SATCOM solutions from aviation’s most respected suppliers including Honeywell and Gogo.
