Square Peg Communications Base Station Equipment Provides Air Interface for Aeronautical Safety Services Worldwide

July 9, 2013

Inmarsat has completed the worldwide deployment of a new generation of Classic Aero Ground Earth Stations (GESs) utilizing Channel Unit Subsystems and protocol software provided by Square Peg Communications Inc. under subcontract to SED Systems.

The Inmarsat Classic Aero system provides voice, data and safety communications services to end users via Aircraft Earth Stations (AESs) installed on airborne platforms and Ground Earth Stations (GESs) which provide the interface between the satellite and terrestrial networks. Classic Aero services are used by most of the world's airlines and corporate jet operators, as well as governments for VIP aircraft, coast guard and defence agencies.

The Channel Unit Subsystem (CUS) is an application of Square Peg’s Multi-Channel Platform (MCP) that provides up to 192 P/R/T or C-channels in a single 7U rack mount chassis. The modems implemented in the CUS are based on those in Square Peg’s Inmarsat Aeronautical Ground Data Unit (GDU), the “gold brick” reference used for type approval of AESs for operation on the Inmarsat network. The architecture of the MCP makes it ideal for applications requiring fault tolerance, high availability and fully compliant performance in a compact implementation.
