[Avionics Today 06-13-2016] An unnamed customer has tapped TrueNorth Avionics Simphone In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) system for a Gulfstream G650. The aircraft, delivering from Gulfstream Completions, will have a system that aims to enhance overall passenger communications.

Gulfstream has tested and certified the TrueNorth system. Interfaces such as Health Trend and Monitoring Systems (HTMS), messaging via Iridium, and functionality with other Satcom systems had to be proven fit for aircraft usage. The TrueNorth Simphone system will allow passengers to enjoy new voice options and quality, Fax capability, and dual Wi-Fi for increased reliability.
