TrueNorth Avionics announced today that its Simphonē airborne connectivity system was selected for a Gulfstream G650 completion. The aircraft, delivering from Gulfstream Completions, will have a system that will enhance overall passenger communications.

“Like Gulfstream, we at TrueNorth are focused on delivering the best customer experience possible. We want to ensure that passengers and crew can be effective and efficient when they have to fly,” said Mark van Berkel, TrueNorth CEO. “This is an important project for us, and it is gratifying to work with Gulfstream to offer a world class communications solution for this G650 aircraft.”

Gulfstream tested the TrueNorth system extensively and certified its successful test achievements. Interfaces such as Health Trend and Monitoring Systems (HTMS), messaging via Iridium, and functionality with other Satcom systems had to be proven fit for aircraft usage. The TrueNorth Simphonē system will allow passengers to enjoy new voice options and quality, Fax capability, and dual Wi-Fi for maximum reliability.
