ICG is selected to supply Iridium satellite communication systems for Challenger 605 business jets

International Communications Group (ICG) today announced that it has been selected by Bombardier Aerospace to provide ICG Iridium satellite communication systems as standard equipment on all new Challenger* 605 widebody business jets.

The new aircraft will be fitted with ICG's ICS-200 dual-channel Iridium satellite phone systems, which will provide global voice and data services. The ICS-200 incorporates two Iridium transceivers, using a single antenna, with an internal cabin telecommunications unit (CTU), providing a stand-alone, comprehensive communication system.

"ICG has a long relationship as an OEM supplier of Iridium systems to Bombardier," said Armin Jabs, president of ICG. "Our Iridium terminals are standard equipment on Challenger* 300, Challenger * 604, Challenger* 605, Bombardier Global 5000* and Global Express* XRS business jets and are available as standard equipment on all Learjet* aircraft. We take great pride in the fact that the ICG communications solutions are now available for all Bombardier* business aircraft product families."

Bombardier's new Challenger 605 widebody business jet is scheduled to enter service in the third quarter of 2007. Its avionics suite features the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 system, which provides pilots with instant, intuitive access to critical flight information on four 10" by 12" (25.4 cm by 30.5 cm) vertically aligned, next-generation LCD screens, as well as the Rockwell Collins Integrated Flight Information System (IFIS) with electronic, chart-based navigation
