April 5, 2016 – Cobham Satcom and Boeing have signed a Technical Service Agreement (TSA) for the certification of the Aviator 600S and 700S systems on the Boeing 777 and 737 aircraft models. The agreement is Cobham Satcom’s first contract with an airplane manufacturer for the Aviator S Series, which supports Inmarsat’s new generation SwiftBroadband Safety service.
The TSA allows Cobham and Boeing to work together on the design of the 600S and 700S solutions onto the Boeing Next-Generation 737, the 737 MAX, the Boeing 777-300ER and 777X. These systems are claimed to address growing demand from airlines for continuous non- encrypted secure data exchange between their ground operations and their aircraft. The Aviator S series of products supports secure IP and ACARS data services, as well as multiple voice channels.
