The Latitude SkyNode S200-012 is a robust Iridium based Satcom system that meets the requirements as a Long Range Communications System (LRCS) for Air Traffic Services (ATS) safety services communication. The system replaces the 2nd HF Radio for operators that require dual LRCS to meet operational requirements. The Latitude SkyNode SATVOICE system provides aircraft operators with uninterrupted worldwide coverage and clear voice communications that is not subject to radio fading and interference typical of HF systems; thereby improving operator safety and convenience.
