We do FANS-1/A+, we are the CPDLC experts.
Future Air Navigation System (FANS- 1/A+) is the product name given to a suite of software upgrades that support CPDLC, ADS-C, AFN and AOC communications over ACARS protocols. FANS-1 was originally developed by Boeing, while Airbus originally developed FANS-A. The two systems are functionally identical. Industry standardization efforts sought to refer to both packages simultaneously, hence the naming convention “FANS-1/A”. The “+” came about as a minor update to the industry standard, DO-258 to DO-258a, and is primarily due to the new message latency feature in CPDLC. All FANS 1/A or FANS-1/A+ messages can be sent over Inmarsat or Iridium satellite systems in addition to VHF (VDL Mode 0, Mode A, or Mode 2.).
Kobev International provides FANS 1/A+ training, testing, and certification support to business jet operators equipping with FANS 1/A+ avionics. Our clients benefit from a team who have been involved in FANS development from the start. We provide classroom training as well as hands-on training over the live satellite network from your FANS-equipped flight deck to our FANS Ground Station, simulating an Air Traffic Control facility. In this way, our clients are able to achieve a comfort level with FANS operations that is not possible from classroom training alone. We also offer the option to use our portable avionics station that also operates over the live satelite network in the event that your aircraft is not available at the time of the training. The FANS Ground Station can be used to verify FANS equipment interoperability (to RTCA DO-258A) and performance (to RTCA DO-306) in support of certification.
