The Challenge

Test and certify a completely new Satcom system that included a phone.

Our Approach

Since our Ontario, Canada client’s product promise was for the Satcom system to connect with both passenger devices and the system’s own Wi-Fi handset, we developed the appropriate test schedule and tests to completely certify the products.

The Solution

We organized and managed the environmental testing of all the components and developed the STC documents. To enable the Wi-Fi to be connected to passenger devices in-flight, we performed the TPED (Transmitting Portable Electronic Devices) compatibility tests.

The Result

This client, a long-time partner, continued to tap us for various certifications of additional new avionics products they developed. Our certification of the system components was the first of a number of STCs we eventually developed for a number of aircraft types.
