SkyTrac Systems has won a contract to supply Iridium satcom systems for one of Europe's largest medical evacuation helicopter fleets.

Under the contract, SkyTrac will equip up to 50 helicopters, belonging to the Deutsche Rettungsflugwacht (DRF) emergency service, with ISAT-100 Iridium terminals, which will be used for air-to-ground voice, data and flight tracking. The terminals will be integrated with the helicopters' Flight Management Systems.

Said Juergen Zoller, planning and control, DRF: "We employ satellite communications technology because it enhances our ability to deliver life-saving medical care in a timely fashion. We chose SkyTrac because of its ability to integrate its hardware with our existing onboard FMS."
