FLIGHTCELL DZMX OFFERS MULTI- PATH, MULTIMEDIA COMMUNICATIONS


Flightcell International Limited of New Zealand (www.flightcell. com) bills its compact Flightcell DZMx direct-entry communications unit as “the world’s only all-in-one solution for global voice, data, messaging, and flight tracking.” Flightcell might also want to promote the minuscule size of the DZMx. Measuring only 4.95” (125mm) wide by 2.18” (55 mm) high and 4.72” (120mm) deep, it can fit into the most cramped cockpit.


“THE FLIGHTCELL DZMX PLATFORM PROVIDES BOTH SATELLITE (IRIDIUM) AND CELLULAR TECHNOLOGY TO ENABLE VOICE, SATELLITE, CELLULAR BROADBAND DATA, AND TRACKING SOLUTIONS,” SAID MICHAEL EDDY, FLIGHTCELL’S MARKETING AND COMMUNICATIONS MANAGER. “THE DZMX HAS A FLEXIBLE ARCHITECTURE THAT ALLOWS FOR MORE THAN 40 UPGRADABLE CONFIGURATIONS AND IS TAILORED TO CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS. WE HAVE RECENTLY RELEASED BUILT-IN WIFI AND BLUETOOTH FOR THE DZMX TO SATISFY CUSTOMER DEMAND. WE HAVE ALSO DEVELOPED FILE TRANSFER VIA DROPBOX AND SECURE CELLULAR TRANSMISSION VIA VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORKS (VPN).”


When asked about trends in the helicopter communications space, Eddy says, “We see other companies following our lead and bringing cellular communications products to


also seeing a demand for onboard wireless connectivity and the benefits it provides. Customers want to connect their smart devices in-flight. They want to be able to use operational programs, send and receive email, send and receive text messages, and access the internet.


“An important requirement that we are now also able to satisfy is the ability to connect to onboard devices,” Eddy added. As an example, he cited the need for today’s air medical aircraft to receive patient data on their aerial PCs and tablets, as well as sending patient data from the aircraft’s medical monitoring equipment to the medical care facility they are flying to. “Our system can provide these data connections over cellular networks, while also providing medical crew initiated dial-up voice comms when needed,” said Eddy.


Looking ahead, Eddy expects advances in low Earth orbit (LEO) satellites to result in even-better communications services for helicopters. “We expect our customers to have access to higher data rates once Iridium NEXT is up and running,” he said. “This will expand the scope of what can now be achieved over the cellular network to a global level. At the same time, high data rates over satellite and 4K video over cellular networks are still limitations.”
