L-3 Aviation Recorders signs agreement with Airbus for SATCOM solutions on A320 family of aircraft

L-3 Aviation Recorders announced today that it has signed an agreement with Airbus to certify and provide the FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd AFIRS 228S real-time data communications and SATCOM solution for installation on the Airbus A320 family of aircraft. The solution offers Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS) capability and SATCOM voice connectivity anywhere in the world through the Iridium network. The AFIRS 228S will be offered under FLYHT's global Value Added Reseller agreement with Iridium.

The data communications and SATCOM solution is currently marketed under the FLYHT brand in conjunction with L-3's industry-leading line of Flight Data Recorders (FDRs). The products being sold will have the technical ability to support FLYHTStream™, FLYHT's triggered data streaming tool.

"L-3 is extremely pleased to work with a strong partner like FLYHT in offering its extensive worldwide airline and OEM customer base a solution for emerging ACARS and SATCOM requirements," said Mike Smith, president of L-3 Aviation Recorders. "In conjunction with an onboard L-3 flight recorder, FLYHT has already demonstrated FDR data and aircraft position streaming on in-service aircraft. The addition of the ACARS, using Iridium and communications services, makes this a very practical solution for our customers."
