Blue Sky Network's SkyLink 7100 aviation solution has completed DO-160G qualification testing and can now be installed on crewed aircraft. Additionally, the SkyLink single-channel Iridium antenna has received FAA TSO C159d approval. This dual-mode communications solution leverages next-generation Iridium satellite service and local 4G/LTE networks, providing aviation customers with continuous pole-to-pole coverage.

To attain DO-160G qualification, the system passed rigorous environmental conditions and test procedures for airborne avionics equipment, including electrical, mechanical and weather-related tests.

"We are incredibly proud to have met these high industry standards," says vice president of business development Jason Hicks. "SkyLink is now the first certified Iridium Certus 100 airborne solution offering mid-band satellite data and high-definition voice."

SkyLink 7100 offers best-in-class performance for fixed wing, rotorcraft and the burgeoning uncrewed aircraft (UAS) industry. This system also unlocks new capabilities for infrastructure monitoring, cargo delivery, aerial firefighting, EMS, airline information, government and crew/passenger communications.

SkyLink 7100 is one of four unique products in Blue Sky Network's SkyLink suite of solutions offered across land, sea, air and IoT markets.
