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.
Other authorities have accepted similar rules.

Fokker Services has joined forces with Navtech, Jepessen and Dynamicsource AB, leading providers of flight operations solutions, and developed an EFB solution for iPad® installation that may revolutionize the way we navigate our skies. Technology moves quickly, and at Fokker Services it is our policy to stay ahead of the game. We design and launch more than 300 aircraft modifications every year, believing that even an already functioning product can be improved on. In recent years Apple has captured the hearts of the consumer with their innovative thinking, whilst Navtech represent quality and credibility within the aviation industry. Combined with the history and experience at Fokker, the development of such an innovative yet simple solution felt like a natural progression. Service providers today are under a lot of pressure to meet growing demands. Products must be efficient, safe, cost effective, user and environmentally friendly; Our EFB installation is ticking all the boxes and is available for most aircraft types, including Airbus, Boeing, ATR, Bombardier Challenger & CRJ Family, Embraer, Fokker and others.
Over 1300 installations and upgrades have been ordered
Automatic Dependent Surveillance- Broadcast (ADS-B) is the replacement and augmentation of RADAR-based aircraft surveillance technology. With ADS-B, the surveillance of aircraft does no longer rely on RADAR ground stations, but on aircraft based GPS receivers. Aircraft equipped with ADS-B broadcast their precise position and velocity data, as well as altitude and supportive information automatically and with no pilot or external input to ATC or to other aircraft.
The 1st FAA Certified LED Anti-Collision Light for Commercial Aircraft
Dependability, Weight Savings and Inventory Reduction
The Talon Aerospace anti-collision centerline/fuselage strobe light is designed to replace all incandescent based centerline lights installed on Boeing, Airbus, McDonnell/Douglas, Embraer, Bombardier and other regional aircraft.
During retrofit the operator will purchase an install kit, which includes an adaptor and harness assembly. On airframes that have accessibility provisions inside the interior the upper centerline light allows removal from inside the cabin. The harness and adaptor will last the lifetime of the airframe.
