Simphone Data Link Unit & DLU-vox

DLU-vox

Introducing DLU-vox, a FANS-1/A and ADSC-C voice and data link unit.
DLU-vox is a dedicated, purpose-built communications system for the flight deck. It builds on the success of TrueNorth’s DLU—business aviation’s most popular data-only Iridium-based FANS-1/A solution—providing data link services, and adding a channel of safety services voice.

Fly Preferred oceanic routes with ease
The flight deck is a busy place. Flying preferred oceanic routes means getting to the destination faster and flying safer. DLU-vox lets you connect to global air traffic control (ATC) using CPDLC and safety services voice to make communicating from the flight deck easier and safer.

Manage your workload, fly safer
Like all FANS-1/A systems, DLU-vox uses text-based communication with ATC to reduce communications errors, simplifying pilot to controller communications, and increasing efficiency in congested air space. Automatic positioning reports reduce the requirement for active listening, trimming your workload, while the channel of enhanced safety services voice contributes to safer flight operations with clearer audio quality than HF radio.

Perfect Pairing
FANS-1/A capabilities offer essential operational and business benefits as business and commercial jet traffic continue to increase over the world’s oceanic regions. Pairing DLU-vox with Satcom Direct (SD) services like FlightDeck Freedom enables operators to monitor cabin and flight deck communications and y more efficiently.
