ICG DataLink-100


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 format exchanges.

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.
