Safran and Duncan Aviation Partner to Provide ADS-B Out Solution
[Avionics Today 11-13-2014] Safran Engineering Services and Nebraska-based Duncan Aviation are developing an Approved Model List Supplemental Type Certificate (AML-STC), for Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) Out, utilizing the Rockwell Collins TDR-94D transponder.
The two companies are responsible for the design, development, integration, testing and certification of the AML-STC for the ADS-B Out FAA-mandated requirement. The solution will initially cover the Bombardier Challenger 601-3A/3R, Lear 60, Gulfstream G100, G200 and the Textron Hawker 800 Series.
Safran also intends to seek appropriate approvals with Transport Canada (TC) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for the aforementioned aircraft models, which will streamline the installation process for ADS-B Out equipage in the United States, Canada and Europe.
