Installation Expected In 40+ U.S. Government Aircraft
TrueNorth Avionics has been
selected to supply its Simphone¯ (pronounced 'Symphony')
airborne telephone for the U.S. government VIP transport fleet, as
defined by the U.S. Air Force's TARS (terrestrial aeronautical
radiotelephone system) program. Simphone¯, the executive-class
system that features menu-driven handsets and TrueNorth's ClearCall
technology for superior voice quality, will be used both on new
aircraft and as a replacement for existing MagnaStar phones.
With its all-digital PBX, two built-in channels of worldwide
Iridium Satcom, 'future-proof' modular architecture, dual CEPT-E1
network interfaces, self-programming personalized handsets,
personalized screens and ringtones, and a unique configuration
module, the Simphone¯ system gives government passengers an
unprecedented degree of custom capability and cost-effective
The TARS program addresses cabin communications on more than 40
VIP transport aircraft. A new C-37B aircraft will receive the
initial system installation.
"We're pleased that the U.S. government, with arguably the
world's most significant VIP fleet, has chosen Simphone¯ for
their communications needs," said Mark van Berkel, TrueNorth's CEO.
"And we look forward to providing their passengers with the same
executive-quality communications capability and support that our
business aviation customers currently receive," he added.
