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.

Carlisle Interconnect Technologies, in a partnership with Saint Gobain Performance Plastics, now offers a complete ARINC 791 solution for Ka- and Ku-band SATCOM installations. The complete package contains everything required for either retrofit or forward fit installations on large jet aircraft. Installation fittings are adjustable to cover the complete range of aircraft frame spacing while providing discrete interface loads to the fuselage. The aerodynamic fairing follows the fuselage curvature without requiring a large installation doubler, sealants, or fasteners through the aircraft skin.
LED Sealed Beam Replacement Lamps from Talon
Get Light-Years ahead of your competition!
Talon Aerospace sealed beam replacement lamps are designed to allow for plug and play replacement of the existing sealed beam lamps fitted on an aircraft. Talon has 3 sizes available, with replacements for the Par 64 landing, Par 46 taxi and Par 36 logo, runway turn-off, engine and wing scan applications. The existing sealed beam lamps have a design life span between 25 and 300 hours while the Talon LED replacements are designed for 20,000 in service hours.
Light output is comparable to OEM lamps and the Par 64 landing light and Par 46 taxi light are designed to meet Mil Spec standard MIL-L-6503H. The LED replacements work with the existing transformers on the aircraft and are designed to minimize the overall LRU count within an operator inventory. The LED replacement lamps are designed with cool white LEDs to maximize light output but the Par 36 logo is also made available in warm white. Par 36 LED replacement lamps operate on both 13V and 26V AC, while the Par 46 and 64 operate on 26 VAC. All lamps can also operate on 28VDC, allowing for rotorcraft applications.
Talon LED sealed beam are designed at comparable weight to existing sealed beam lamps of equal size, allowing them to be used in existing fixtures. The current draw for the LED lamp is significantly lower compared to the existing units. Landing light Q4559X draws 650W while Talon LED replacement TAE0728-1 draws only 104W.
The LED replacement lamps are fully repairable and operator can replace individual components like the LED board, power supply and lens in case of failures, reducing cost of ownership.

Replace your current window blinds by the Element EDW.
Fully control and manage the outside elements entering the cabin through the aircraft windows.
Light entering aircraft cabins through windows is a welcome element – but only if it can be managed. Element EDWs provide the solution. Precise control over the amount of light and glare in the cabin. Passengers experience greater comfort by having the optimum level of daylight in the cabin.
Windows are the primary source of solar heat entering the cabin when the aircraft is on the ground. The cabin can be uncomfortably warm and passengers suffer. Element EDWs provide the following benefits:
Studies by NASA and others have demonstrated that windows are a primary source of noise entering an aircraft cabin from outside. Passengers experience psychological and physiological distress. Element EDWs have innovative transparent acoustic insulation films, providing a quieter cabin during the flight.
Jet Aviation Basel has developed a plug and play in-flight dishwasher (ADW) with a 3-5 minute wash cycle that requires just 3 liters of water. The user-friendly ADW is compatible with an eco-friendly soap that can be used to clean silver and aluminum dishes.
Available in different sizes to ensure the perfect fit for all galleys, including that of the B787, the ADW utilizes a quick connection system and features a customizable front design. It is qualified for taxi, take-off and landing with up to 20 kg of dishes stored inside the dishwasher.
