The UniLink provides superior operations and control of digital communications between the pilot and Air Traffic Controller (ATC) in the exceedingly complex Communication, Navigation, and Surveillance (CNS) Air Traffic Management (ATM) environment. The UL-800/801 provides an opportunity to take full advantage of the safety and efficiency benefits that advanced datalink capabilities offer.
The UL-800/801 interfaces with Universal Avionics’ current FMS product line with either 4” or 5” Control Display Units. For increased versatility, UL-801 includes an internal VHF Data Radio (VDR). The UL-801’s internal VDR saves weight, space, and the installation of an external VDR. The UL-801 may transmit and receive data via VDR or SATCOM depending upon geographic location, reducing operational costs substantially.
