TSO approves Universal Avionics’ UniLink CMU

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has granted Technical Standard Order (TSO) approval for Universal Avionics’ third generation Airborne Datalink System, UniLink UL-800/801 Communications Management Unit (CMU).

Universal Avionics reports that delivery of UL-800/801 units has begun with Universal’s Manufacturing Division operating at full capacity to fulfill orders.

UniLink UL-800/801 Airborne Datalink features:

FANS 1/A+ Compliance

  • Controller Pilot Data Link Communications Capability (CPDLC)
  • Multiple Media Routing
  • Full ACARS/CMU Functionality
  • ADS-C Auto Position Reporting
  • Hi-Res Weather Graphics
  • Loadable Custom Database Capability
  • DO-178B Level C Compliant
  • CNS/ATM Provisioned, including EUROCONTROL’s Link 2000+ Programme
  • CV/FDR Data Recording Output
  • Internal VHF Datalink Radio (For UL-801 models)
  • SATCOM Interface Capability

Universal said the UniLink provides superior operations and control of digital communications between the pilot and Air Traffic Controller (ATC) in the exceedingly complex Communication, Navigation, and Surveillance (CNS) Air Traffic Management (ATM) environment. The UL-800/801 provides an opportunity to take full advantage of the safety and efficiency benefits that advanced datalink capabilities offer.

The UL-800/801 interfaces with Universal Avionics’ current FMS product line with either 4” or 5” Control Display Units. For increased versatility, UL-801 includes an internal VHF Data Radio (VDR). The UL-801’s internal VDR saves weight, space, and the installation of an external VDR. The UL-801 may transmit and receive data via VDR or SATCOM depending upon geographic location, reducing operational costs substantially.
