Transceiver Unit, advanced digitial handset, and a low-gain, top-mounted
ARINC 761 blade antenna. AIRSAT 1 weights 15 lbs and can be installed on
aircraft of virtually any type.

with rich telephony features including voice mail, call forwarding
and other telephone calling features are included as standard in the
Iridium subscriber package.
SatTalk II Aircraft Satellite Telephone System
The SatTalk II Aircraft Satellite Telephone System developed by ICARUS
Instruments provides you with clear telephone communications and Internet
access in your aircraft cockpit and cabin. It works at any altitude anywhere
in the world. Provides reliable data connections, no dead zones, no altitude
restrictions and no eavesdropping with Iridium's all digital satellite
technology. All calls, voice or data, go from the aircraft's Iridium antenna
through one or more Iridium low-earth-orbit satellites. Iridium-to-Iridium
calls are sent directly to their destination. All other calls are routed to
an Iridium gateway, which then routes voice and dial-up data calls over the
public switched telephone network, while direct internet data calls are
routed to the Internet over dedicated connections.
Flight crewmembers can use their aviation headset to place and receive
voice calls while simultaneously monitoring ATC communications. ATC
communications automatically override an in-progress Iridium call, placing
the Iridium call on hold until the ATC communications are complete.
Passengers in quiet cabins may use a lightweight headset with boom
microphone or telephone handset. Incoming calls will ring in the aviation
headset and in the cabin-mounted headset or handset. The phone can also be
set to auto-answer after a set number of rings. Dial-Up data calls and
Direct Internet data calls can also be placed from an attached computer.
- The system is portable and can be easily moved
between applications. (This excludes the antenna which is permanently
- The unit serves as an accessory to the Motorola
Model Series 9505 Telephone allowing the Telephone to be easily removed

with no modifications required to the headset or the aircraft
- A cable with headphone and microphone plug is supplied to allow an
