  • ST 3120 Worldwide Satcom for MagnaStar
  •   Aircell is expanding its Iridium-based airborne telecommunication product line with the new ST 3120 Satcom for MagnaStar® airborne telephone systems. Aircell's third Iridium Satcom, the ST 3120 transceiver accesses the 66-satellite Iridium constellation for voice and data telecommunications. MagnaStar operators gain seamless dual-channel worldwide Satcom service.

    The two Iridium channels can be used independently or simultaneously. Yes, you can simultaneously use onboard transceivers for other networks - adding new capacity or capability to a MagnaStar system. Interfacing with the MagnaStar C-750 or C-2000 units, the ST 3120 uses the aircraft's existing handsets and cabin communication system. Through February 27, 2004, you can also get a free gift with your ST 3120 order.

  • Network Optimized & Coverage Expands
  •   We've been busy adding new sites and improving performance. In 2003 Aircell activated its 134th site. "The site hands off to all of the Nebraska sites, as well as all of the Kansas sites," said Wes Burnett, Managing Director of Network Engineering and Operations, "giving us the states of Nebraska and Kansas, along with Iowa and Illinois, with contiguous coverage." In fact, above 18,000 feet, continental U.S. cellular coverage is now 95%.

    Over the past 18-24 months, Aircell has made major network improvements. These include 19 new sites, 22 new site handoffs, 120 site upgrades, and plenty of new antennas for improved high-altitude coverage and quality. Since we're talking numbers, did you know that Iridium uses 66 satellites for our "pole to pole" global coverage? Iridium has 14 spare satellites in orbit to ensure continued worldwide service through at least 2014.

  • A New Spin On Helicopter Communications
  •   An Aircell ST 3100 system provides enhanced communications capability for helicopters - anywhere, at any altitude, and for any mission. The first ST 3100 installation was in a Bell 430. Since then, the system has become standard equipment in the Sikorsky S-92 Helibus Civil Transport, as well as an option for the Sikorsky S-76. Another recent installation was in an Agusta A109. In a recent interview with Centennial Aviation & Business Journal, Bill Peltola, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, noted that Aircell has already "established some strong relationships with the corporate helicopter community."

    Helicopter operators appreciate how Aircell's new worldwide Satcom system meets their unique needs. Since most helicopter pilots wear headsets, you may want an external dial capability. To fill that need, Aircell developed a POTS (Plain Old Telephone System) interface for the ST 3100. This lets you use an external dialer, such as the NAT PTA12. The NAT dialer not only provides dialing capability, you get increased headset audio volume, helpful in a noisy helicopter. So see us March 15-17 in Las Vegas at Heli-Expo 2004.
