EAD Aerospace's SUMS hosts Honeywell's JetWave satellite antenna process to hook up the Inmarsat World wide Xpress (GX) constellation, giving significant-bandwidth Ka-band connectivity. The package produced by EAD Aerospace consists of the adapter plate, the skirt, the electrical harness and the structural reinforcements.
EAD Aerospace indicated that it experienced obtained a certain STC from EASA in file time to be able to launch the installation of the SUMS radar package on the Triple Seven of Qatar Airways. It specifies that its process ARINC 791 is notably straightforward to set up, with minimal essential modifications in the fuselage. The Qatari corporation also installs its rams through the routine maintenance visits of its 777, ie with no obtaining immobilized the plane past the now prepared times. The products are also geared up with servers and Wi-Fi obtain points, with associated cables.

The A350 have been geared up with Line-in shape, the forty three Boeing 777 passengers so far the only kinds involved by this modification (Qatar Airways need to also obtain ten 777-300ER new). The activation of GX on the first plane of Qatar Airways is envisioned just before the close of the 12 months.
The Val de Marne corporation has been doing work on its SUMS package because 2014. The Aviation Journal experienced and identified the existence of this Satcom antenna mount compatible with Honeywell's JetWave antenna on the celebration of the 2016 version of Plane Interiors in Hamburg (see article: EAD Aerospace offers its JetWave compatible radar ).
EAD Aerospace is now hoping to get the ssame on A340 and 747 before long after obtaining obtained the STC to set up its SUMS radar kits on the Airbus one-aisle (2016) and on the A330 and 777 (2017).
