Astronautics to Provide Connectivity Solution for Airbus Helicopters
Monday, June 19, 2017

Forward-fit communications system for multiple Airbus Helicopter platforms will enable complete digital connectivity

Le BOURGET, France, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PARIS AIR SHOW -- Astronautics Corporation of America announced that it will provide its newest connectivity platform, the Astronautics Air Ground Communications System (AGCS), to Airbus Helicopters as a connectivity solution for the original equipment manufacturer's production helicopters. Airbus Helicopters is the largest supplier of turbine helicopters to the rotorcraft market.

The Astronautics AGCS system consists of an airborne server, wireless communications module, remote media device, and ground server software creating a complete air-to-ground, modular data transmission system. The system is expected to qualify by the end of 2018.

Airbus Helicopter operators will benefit in many ways from the AGCS, including: 1) secure protection of critical avionics from non-authorized access through implementation of a modern cybersecurity framework; 2) wireless access to operational and maintenance data in flight and on the ground; 3) capability to send and receive data through a variety of communication channels; and 4) the ability to store and retrieve hundreds of hours of operational data within the system.

"The Astronautics AGCS will provide Airbus Helicopters a connectivity solution designed specifically for helicopters with the latest certification regulations [Data Security CRI]," said Astronautics President Chad Cundiff. "Helicopter operators will realize enhanced operational and safety benefits through real-time data access. Plus, the AGCS' modular design and upgradeability will ensure the system can rapidly evolve to provide operators the latest, state-of-the-art digital innovation."
