Embraer selects International Communications Group Iridium NxtLink communications systems for Lineage and new Legacy programs

International Communications Group (ICG), the leader in the development and manufacture of aeronautical communications systems and solutions for the Business Aviation, Military Aircraft and Air Transport industries, today announced that Embraer, a prestigious and renowned manufacturer of business jet and commercial aircraft, will equip its midlight Legacy 450, midsize Legacy 500 and ultra large cabin Lineage 1000 aircraft with ICG's Datalink capable Iridium Communications Systems (ICS).

ICG will be the primary satellite communications provider to Embraer Executive Jet owners on various business jet models to include the Lineage 1000 and Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 series aircraft. ICG's Vice President of OEM Sales, Jeff Saucedo, said "We're pleased to continue our strong relationship with Embraer, and look forward to working together to provide their customers with Next Generation communications solutions that meets their requirements."

With ICG's ICS-220A Iridium Communications System, Embraer Executive Jet owners will have dual full-service Iridium channels, providing both flight deck and cabin voice services, along with a dedicated Short Burst Data (SBD) Datalink Modem in a single LRU. Operators will have the option to choose between the ICG NxtLink series; ICS-220A dual channel system or the ICS-400 quad channeldevice. The ICG Iridium based avionics, provide an ideal solution for seamless global communications services without the inconveniences of handoff or no service areas, including polar regions.

In addition, these systems provide communications services for the traditional Datalink services such as Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting Systems (ACARS) and Airborne Flight Information Service (AFIS), as well as the Future Air Navigation Systems (FANS 1/A) to include Controller Pilot Datalink Communications (CPDLC), and ADS-C messaging. With the ICS-220A system installed, the operator is prepared for the emerging rule changes and mandates for required flight deck communications to achieve FANS compliance and to fly FANS routes.

Jeff Saucedo, ICG's Vice President of OEM Sales, said "The ICG NxtLink series enhances safety by providing reliable communications and are the most economical satellite based long range communications systems available today. They meet the quality standard and high expectations that customers have come to rely on from ICG and Embraer."
