FAA Approves Satcom Direct Router for Gulfstream G550 and G450 Aircraft

The US Federal Aviation Administration has given approval to Gulfstream Aerospace to install the next-generation Satcom Direct Router (SDR) for cabin communications on Gulfstream G550 and G450 aircraft. The SDR is designed to offer 3G cellular connectivity worldwide and supports mobile applications for onboard cabin services, including a moving map and flight tracker, command and control of satellite links, and real-time connection status reporting. The solution is said to provide advanced technology in data compression and acceleration. It interfaces with ViaSat's Ku-band and Honeywell's SwiftBroadband systems, and with future connectivity systems, including Ka-band. Weighing less than 10lb, the equipment can be installed inside the cabin or avionics bay. It will be available as standard on new G550 and G450 aircraft, and as a retrofit for in-service G550s and G450s.
