CERTON completes System Safety Hazard Analysis for Avionica communications system

CERTON Engineering has successfully performed a Fault Tree Analysis for Avionica's installation of the satLINK Max System in the Boeing 737, 757, 767, and 777 Series aircraft.

The analysis for the system focused on components categorized as safety-critical with a Design Assurance Level D in accordance with DO-178B. The scope of this project involved an extensive System Safety Hazard Analysis (SSHA) performed by CERTON in coordination with Avionica.

This project reinforces the continued growth and expansion for CERTON in the Aerospace industry. Tim Stockton, President & CEO at CERTON, stated, “Developing new relationships with safety-critical equipment manufacturers, such as Avionica, is a key component to our continued success here at CERTON. We are excited to be applying our expertise toward the System Safety Hazard Analyses that drive decisions on the level of safety criticality for the entire product life-cycle.” CERTON looks to continue raising the bar in embedded software and electronic hardware certification approvals so aircraft transportation remains one of the safest modes of travel available.

“The satLINK MAX is being seen as the leading 'off-the-shelf' solution for operators who are required to install and operate satellite voice communications on business aircraft to be able to operate in the North Atlantic,” said Anthony Rios, vice president of sales for Avionica.

At less than 4 pounds (1.8kg) in weight, the satLINK MAX is the lightest Iridium satellite communication solution, making it ideal for business jets. The technology is in use on more than 800 aircraft worldwide, supported by existing supplemental type certificates (STCs) for Boeing 727, 737, 747, 757, 767, 777, and MD10/11 aircraft.

With up to four Iridium modems, satLINK MAX supports multiple voice and data services with a single dual-element antenna. Typical satLINK MAX SATCOM installations include two Air Traffic Service flight deck voice channels, one FANS-1/A datalink channel, and one voice and data capable cabin service channel.
