The plane had sent a series of warnings indicating that smoke had been detected on board through ACARS
The official said that when ACARS
is turned off, Swift continues on, adding that if Swift is configured to track engine data, that data will be streamed off the plane as it continues to be powered up along with the aircraft.
The new information opened the possibility that both ACARS
and the plane's transponders, which make the plane visible to civilian air traffic controllers, were turned off at about the same time.
Both Boeing and Rolls-Royce have told us they did not get any ACARS
transmission after 1.
Even as we look towards the introduction of a new aeronautical telecommunications network protocol for air traffic control data link and aircraft IP links for electronic flight bags, ACARS
is so embedded in aircraft that it is set to remain the communications backbone of aviation for another 15 to 20 years," said Philip Clinch, SITA vice president, Aircraft Communication Services.
Aviation technology solutions company AviIT has announced that the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, Etihad Airways, has awarded AviIT the contract to support all ACARS
services across its Airbus and Boeing aircraft fleet.
We are very pleased to add FlyteComm as a partner their services add complementary capabilities to our ACARS
service that we provide to the world airlines," said Jeannine Hendricks, Director of Business Development of ARINC.
The Rockwell Collins GLOBALink A350 MIAM service seamlessly converts ACARS
MIAM messages to any protocol, allowing interoperability with airline, aircraft and engine manufacturers ACARS
host and end-systems without requiring any modifications.
These systems are modular, tablet-based, and maximize aircraft in-flight data connectivity through satellite communications systems and ACARS
37 am, investigators believe someone switched off the ACARS
system, designed to transmit maintenance data back to the ground.
Then several minutes after takeoff, the ACARS
was turned off just before the jetliner hovered above the east shoreline of the Malaysian Peninsula.
The system allows voice and ACARS
operations beyond land-based VHF coverage.
