Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) refers to a constellation of satellites providing signals from space that transmit positioning and timing data to GNSS receivers. The receivers then use this data to determine position, altitude, time, and velocity. This performance can be improved by regional satellite-based augmentation systems (SBAS).
SBAS improves the accuracy and reliability of GPS information by correcting signal measurement errors and by providing information about the integrity of its signals. SBAS is essential for applications where accuracy and integrity are critical. SBAS is a key enabler of Performance Based Navigation (PBN) usage for Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) and Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (LPV).
Events related to aircraft missing over oceanic areas have led to several new requirements, amongst which is the introduction of a long-range Underwater Locator Device (ULD).
The ULD low frequency (8.8kHz) technology is used to increase the range at which aircraft submerged wreckage can be located.
It will be mounted on the aircraft structure free of sound absorbent materials and not in wing sections or empennage. The installation is in accordance with ARINC specification 667, which describes the removal, installation and maintenance aspects of an ULD installation.
Note that the ULD is not to be confused with the Underwater Locator Beacons (ULB) as installed on the CVR and FDRs. The ULD is complementary to the ULB and is mounted to the aircraft structure.
ICAO states that by January 1st 2018 aircrafts flying long range over water with a MTOW>27.000 kg must be equipped with an ULD. Long range over water is determined by the exceedance of the distance from a suitable emergency landing spot. The distance corresponds to 120 min at cruise speed or 400NM whichever is the lesser.
EASA states that by January 1st 2019 Passenger aircraft flying long range over water with a MTOW>27.000 kg and cargo aircraft with MTOW > 45.500kg must be equipped with an ULD. Long range over water is determined by a distance >180 NM from shore.
CARS 121 MOS 11.64 states that aircraft with a MTOW>27.000 kg carrying a life raft should have an ULD by December 2, 2023.
Other authorities have accepted similar rules.

LED Forward Navigation and Position Lights
Talon Aerospace LED Forward Navigation and Position Lights are designed to allow for plug and play replacement of the existing OEM LED and incandecsent lights fitted on A320, A330 and A340 series aircraft.
The LED Forward Navigation Lights are designed to remain on wing in excess of five years. During the first C Check after five years of operation the LED lights are removed to replace the LED board and gaskets for fresh service life.
The LED Forward Navigation Lights are fully repairable and come with a 5 year warranty.
Talon and Proponent
Proponent is the exclusive global distributor of all Talon Aerospace products. This relation provides customers
with the latest generation of LED lights.
Proponent is the new identity representing Kapco Global and Avio-Diepen as one united company, and the unique capabilities that the new organization brings to the aerospace market. With extensive experience in supporting the MRO, OEM and airline markets, our organization offers innovative inventory and supply chain management solutions to OEM and aftermarket customers.
Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) are becoming more and more commonly available in our daily life.
Recognized national health institutes in several countries currently advises these AED.
As a result of this, operators are requested by these health institutes to install this AED equipment on board of the aircraft.
Further AMC1 CAT.IDE.A.220 (b) (4) was issued with additional guidance, which is further detailed in FAQ n.19169, issued by EASA (https://www.easa.europa.eu/faq/19169)
Although the AED units are widely spread for civil use, DOA 160 certification for aerospace use is sometimes difficult to prove.
Fokker Services has successfully completed EMC verification testing on the Fokker 50 and Fokker 70/100 aircraft as well on a Embraer 170/190 and DeHavilland Dash-8 aircraft with the following commercially available model AED:
Philips Heartstart FRx 861304
Heartsine Samaritan PAD 350
With 350 engineers, 45 years of expertise and a large DOA scope, ECM Sky Services assists Airlines in their modification projects with cost effective turnkey solutions. From minor changes to complete VIP cabin design, ECM is a key partner as soon as expertise and reactivity are mandatory.
