Latitude DL150 now certified on Gulfstream G450 & G550

Posted 10 May 2018 · Add Comment

Latitude Technologies has announced that Gulfstream Aerospace in Savannah, Georgia, has finalised STC certification of the Latitude DL150 Satellite Data Unit (SDU) for Gulfstream G450 and G550 series aircraft.

This will support CPDLC/ADS-C/ACARS satellite data link services, the DL150 is a TSO-C159b approved communications link enabling Future Air Navigation Systems (FANS 1/A+).   

Already required for some air corridors, ATCs will continue to limit the busiest and most favorable routes to FANS 1/A-equipped aircraft up to its full 2020 implementation date. DL150-equipped Gulfstream aircraft operators now have an effective option when addressing their long-range data link communication requirements which also includes pole-to-pole global coverage as an added benefit.

“Our team of engineers, programmers, and developers create quality products that fill a wide range of needs in the aerospace market,” Founder and President Mark Insley commented. “When an aircraft manufacturer places trust in your organisation and products, it is a tremendous vote of confidence.”
