The FAA granted International Communications Group’s (ICG) authorized reseller, L2 Consulting Services, a supplemental type certificate (STC) for installation of ICG’s ICS-120 Iridium Communication System. ICG said the STC is applicable to B757-200/200PF/200CB/300 series aircraft. The ICS-120 is a single-channel communication system certified for cockpit communications using a telephone dialer adapter. The ICS-120 features a dedicated short burst data transceiver for ACARS communications to provide unrestricted access for the flight crew to air/ground Datalink services. The ICS-120 is also compatible with most CMU/DMU models, connecting via the ARINC 429 data bus, thereby eliminating the need for any additional interface devices. The ICS-120 system provides a range of cabin telecommunications unit features, including intercom calling, call transfer, conferencing and follow-on dialing. Other features include credit card calling, digital echo suppression, store and forward fax service and secure voice operation. For related news
