EASA Clears Iridium System

Iridium’s satellite communications systems, NxtLink ICS-220A and IRT-22120, have been granted a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the European Safety Agency (EASA). The systems are now clear for installation on 737-700/800/900/900ER aircraft. Certification is required for European operators to integrate Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified systems. NxtLink-220a and IRT-2120 are comprehensive communication systems that provide flight crews with a dedicated data link channel support.
