The ICG DataLink-100 (DL-100) is a multi-function data gateway device which provides Bi-directional messaging over the global Iridium satellite network via a Short Burst Data (SBD) modem. Built to aeronautical standards, the DL-100 can be used as a flight deck datalink communications system compliant with the ARINC 741 standard, to send and receive ATS and AOC data messages.
The DL-100 provides connections to aircraft DMU/CMU devices via conventional ARINC 429 circuits,
permitting the sending and receiving of traditional ACARS messages as well as
supporting the newer CPDLC and FANS1/A Messaging requirements. It can also be
used as a device to send and receive free text messages or can support other data
The Datalink-100 has an internal GPS option that can be used
to support asset tracking, automatic or event-driven position reporting or other
requirements where positioning information is required.
The DL-100 has multiple connection types (Ethernet, USB, Serial, etc.) that provide access for peripheral
devices and can be configured to be application specific.
With an internal GPS, the Datalink-100 can be a stand alone device that provides discrete input and user
definable event reporting. Other applications for the Datalink-100 are asset tracking or any application requiring periodic transmission of small data packets. The device is small, compact and light weight that can be installed on any size aircraft.
