Universal Avionics’ Airborne Datalink System Approved for Helicopters Universal Avionics

Universal Avionics recently completed helicopter vibration testing and approval for its airborne datalink system, UniLink UL-800/801 Communications Management Unit (CMU). UniLink UL-800/801 CMU adds to Universal’s expanding line of products designed for the unique requirements of the helicopter market.

Under RTCA DO-160F, “Environmental Conditions and Test Procedures for Airborne Equipment,” specific vibration testing for rotorcraft is required above and beyond those for fixed-wing aircraft. Universal Avionics’ UniLink UL-800/801 CMU was successfully tested to this standard, therefore allowing installation and certification of the unit in the high-vibration environment of rotorcraft platforms.

UniLink UL-800/801 is a full ACARS-compatible CMU offering operational advantages that include Digital Automatic Terminal Information Service (D-ATIS), pre-departure clearance, aircraft tracking, messaging, weather information and graphics. In addition, UniLink UL-800/801 CMU is provisioned for the Aeronautical Telecommunications Network (ATN), providing a platform for future compliance to emerging datalink requirements.

Operators will have the opportunity to view and operate Universal Avionics’ UniLink UL-800/801 CMU in booth C2401 at the Heli-Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, March 5th - 7th.
