The project was completed at the West Star Aviation East Alton, Ill., location. The first of type installation included Wi-Fi certifications for interface to Iridium and Inmarsat satcom systems. The True North Chorus was used for Iridium data via Wi-Fi while the Inmarsat solution was provided via the EMS CNX-200 and Honeywell HD-710 swift broadband pipe. This STC is considered to be Wi-Fi tolerant allowing for other manufacturers routers to be enabled, the company said.
