GENERAL INFORMATION

1.1

INTRODUCTION

This manual contains information relative to the physical, mechanical, and electrical installation of the Sky Connect Systems. Operating procedures are also included.

1.2

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

The Sky Connect series satellite communications device consists of a transceiver, an

L-band antenna, and a dialing/audio/data interface device. The remote mounted transceiver is the heart of the system, and contains the Iridium satellite LBT (L-Band

Transceiver). The LBT can be thought of as the “phone” in the satellite phone system and the modem in the data system, as it is the connection used to gain access to the Iridium network. The LBT allows the two way transfer of voice and data.

The LBT is the same in every transceiver of the Sky Connect System though different modules are added to define the function of the transceiver as a whole. Each Sky

Connect telephone system also has the ability for data transfer at rates up to 10

Kbps (with compression), allowing the user to interface a laptop for in-flight email capability. The Tracker system offers an optional internal 12 channel G.P.S. module.

Tracker uses the short burst data transfer portions of the Sky Connect suite, though it can be coupled with any of the phone systems. Any system can exist alone, or co-exist with another, and upgrades can be done to any system at any time without incurring additional cost penalties.

The Iridium system can only be occupied by one “call” at a time, whether it is voice, data, or Short Burst Data. These systems exist simultaneously, but can not be used simultaneously. Multiple transceivers and antennas are required for multiple channels of communication. For clarity, two users may be on separate handsets on the same call, but two users can not be on separate handsets on different calls without a second transceiver/antenna. Similarly, when a phone call is in progress,

Tracker will be unable to send SBD packets, though as soon as the line is clear, it will send its stored messages.

In order to send data the transceiver must have an active LBT sending SBD.

This is done from the activation form.

The transceiver must have an active SIM card.

The transceiver must have been configured for the aircraft type.

Helicopters may use collective or squat switches.

Airplanes may use squat switches.

The transceiver must have the report intervals set.

The aircraft must be outside and have a clear view of the sky.

The aircraft antenna system must be installed I.A.W. our instructions.

To display a complete flight, the aircraft must send Departure, Scheduled reports, and an Arrival message to define a complete flight. This is done

Sky Connect Tracker Capabilities Notes

2.10.1

The following is a recommendation and suggested options available to the user of the Sky Connect Tracker Series. We hope not to limit your imagination on how you can apply the rules of the system, only make some common suggestions.

Event Switch Use

Most important of the options that an end customer can take advantage of with the tracker is the eight (8) event switches. When one of the switches is closed or opened, and event report is sent to the ground server alerting the software to this action. Each event is defined either by the Sky Connect

Server ie Squat switch, or by the end user through the ground mapping software or the Tracker Configuration software.

Each switch input can be configured to one of the following types of inputs:

2.10.1.1

2.10.1.2

2.10.1.3

2.10.1.4

2.10.1.5

Toggle Switch - This type of switch selection in the tracker set up software will send an event report when the switch is closed (set) and when it is again opened.

Press Switch - this is a momentary action switch, and sends one event report per press.

Squat Switch - Has a specific purpose, to report that the aircraft has taken off

(open) or has landed (closed).

Dialer - used to dial one of the pre-programmed phone numbers if you are using the 6 or 11 position dialer panels. Use of the 11 position dialer takes up 4 of the 8 event switches and limits use for various other inputs.

Inhibit - This switch input will prevent the tracker from transmitting the position data.

The 11 position dialer 1616-052-0X will make use of 7 of the provided 8

2 - 3

allowing only one left for the squat switch input if desired.

1616-964-12

Date: 7/27/2011

Rev. 2.1

2.10.2

The predetermined functions of the switches on the 11 position dialer are:

2.10.2.1

2.10.2.2

2.10.2.3

2.10.2.4

2.10.3

2.10.3.1

2.10.3.2

2.10.3.3

2.10.3.4

Emergency - typically to declare and aircraft emergency.

Code - used mostly by EMS operators to declare a patient emergency.

Position - mark a position of interest to the pilot or crew.

Dialer - 4 event switches are used to dial the programmed numbers.

The MMU does not use any of the event switches so all 8 are available.

Suggested uses for the event switches would be:

Connect to an oil pressure switch to automatically send an event report when oil pressure is lost, to the ground.

Connect to a low rotor RPM warning when rotor speed is insufficient, to the ground.

Connect to an over temp/torque light to report this event to the ground.

Connect to a relay to let the ground know a circuit breaker has been pulled.

This has been used in the past on lease aircraft to allow the leaser to know when the pilot has made an attempt to disable the time reporting system, being the Sky Connect system itself.

Any event the operator would wish to know has occurred in flight, can be recorded to the ground by the use of a switch closure. The logic can be inverse by the use of a relay. More than one event can be grouped to one event switch by the use of diodes.

Example: the ground might want to know that an event has occurred that would require ground maintenance. You might not need to know that a specific event has occurred immediately, but that something has occurred. Connecting all the engine events to one input isolated by diodes would report such an event.

Note: Connection of aircraft “required systems” through the tracker (a nonessential system) will require FAA or other airworthiness approval. Engineering showing compliance with XX.1309 will have to be completed. Minor or major change/alteration determination is up to the installer.

Server Software Options

Sky Connect Server Software is capable of the following settings.

Sending an email when the unit has missed a report. This is determined in the software by looking at the report rate interval and making the determination that an interval has passed without a report from the transceiver. The system waits an additional 5 minutes, and if another report has not come through to the server, sends an email(s) to an individual or a table of addresses for missed report alarm, a.k.a. Overdue.

Sending an email for EVERY report the unit makes. Some operators use this to determine if the unit is tracking in lew of a software program.

Flight summary reports can be sent by email, with information on the distance, time and takeoff/landing locations. This email may be sent to one or many persons in a email table.

Mapping Software Options

There are many mapping programs designed for either a wide customer base, or designed for very specific operator use. These programs have their own manuals and should be consulted based on which program you choose.

INSTALLATION - GENERAL

PRIOR TO INSTALLATION

Perform a visual inspection of the equipment for evidence of damage incurred during shipment.

3.1

A DISCUSSION ON SIM CARDS

It is Sky Connect policy to ship all units with a deactivated SIM card. The unit is tested with a DEMO card before leaving our facility.

With that in mind, please be aware of the following paragraphs.

No testing can occur until a activated SIM card is installed in the transceiver or

CONFIG/SIM Module. The account has to be activated with an Iridium service provider. Systems are generally shipped with a SIM card installed, with the PIN code disabled, and the service deactivated. The customer is responsible for this activation as the customer receives the bills for the phone use. This process can take minutes, and should be done in advance of the installation/testing.

In the event that the customer provides a SIM card, or desires to provide the card it must be de-pinned, or the system will get blocked. Contact the manufacturer if you intend to change SIM cards. Sky Connect recommends against customer replacement of SIM cards as it affects unit serviceability.

Until the Iridium L-Band Transceiver has been registered on the network, there is very little you can do to test its operation. A de-pinned activated SIM is required before this can happen. The SIM card is the identity of the user, and thus must travel with the user. In this case, the user’s SIM card is installed in the Sky Connect transceiver.

This process should only need to be accomplished at initial installation. After user activation, the system will function. Should the unit need to be replaced, or transferred to another party, or in the event that a SIM card requires replacement, return unit to Sky Connect or a qualified avionics shop to have the SIM card replaced in order to keep the SIM card account matched with the user.

GENERAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

3.6.1 ANTENNA PLACEMENT

The Aero-Antenna AT2775 L-Band antenna should be placed as far as practical from other transmitting antenna. A minimum of 30 inches is recommended to other

L-Band transmitting antenna. The Iridium antenna is itself a transmitting antenna, and as such, an eighteen inch minimum spacing to G.P.S. antennae is recommended.

The Iridium antenna requires full view of the sky above. Shadowing and interference can occur when mounted near vertical stabilizers, and other structures inherent to aircraft. When used in conjunction with an internal G.P.S. for Tracker, a separate active Sensor S67-1575-39 G.P.S. antenna is supplied. See Figure 4 for antenna dimensions.

Note: Inmarsat systems (commonly referred to as Satcom) will greatly interfere with the performance of the Iridium antenna. This interference may appear to be intermittent with aircraft position as the Inmarsat transmitting antenna array is electrically steer able depending on azimuth to satellite. Inmarsat will disrupt Iridium communications whenever active. Inmarsat should be disabled when Iridium is in use, alternatively, filters are available for

Inmarsat systems which essentially act as an Iridium bandpass filter. Consult

Sky Connect for more information.

The antenna should be mounted in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and reference FAA AC43.13-2A. The antenna should be properly bonded to the aircraft ground plane to aid in eliminating unwanted interference. Surface preparation should include the use of Alodine 1001 or similar. The antennae listed above, as well as the Sensor S67-1575-109 Iridium antenna are all TSO’d and approved for mounting on pressurized vessels.

Antenna installations on pressurized vessels require FAA approved design and engineering data whenever a pressure vessel requires penetration due to connector/mounting holes. Approved designs can be obtained from aircraft manufacturers, STC data specific to the antenna, or DERs. Seal antenna in accordance with FAA AC43.13-2A.

3.6.2 ANTENNA CABLE

When routing antenna cable, avoid high current wiring, other transmitting antenna cables, and sharp bends. Antenna cable should be selected to obtain 3dB max loss at

1.6GHz. The installer is responsible for providing antenna cables. Use the following chart as an aid to determine the appropriate cable type for your required installed length. Follow industry practices when assembling the TNC connectors. RG-142 coax cable is recommended in installations up to 20 feet in length, alternative cable types are listed below.

Pre assembled cable lengths are available from EMTEQ, ECS, and PIC.

3.6.3 TRANSCEIVER STRUCTURAL MOUNTING

The Sky Connect Transceiver should be mounted in accordance with standard practices found in FAA Advisory Circular 43.13-2A. The Transceiver is approved for mounting outside the pressure vessel. See Figures 2 and 3 for unit and tray dimensions.

The structural mount consists of a mating tray, with a self-locking, vibration resistant, knurled thumbscrew system. The tray should be bolted to a suitable avionics shelf, using approved #6 hardware, until the tray was changed to Mod level

A, which requires #8 hardware. Please check the Mod Status on the tray prior to installation to assure you use the correct hardware.

Rev. 2.1

3.6.4 TRANSCEIVER ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION

Wiring must be done in accordance with FAA AC43.13-1B, or most current revision.

A crimp tool meeting Mil Spec M22520/2-01 and a positioner are required to ensure consistent, reliable crimp contact connections for the 62-pin D Subminiature connector. A 2 amp pull able Circuit Breaker is required for external protection of the Sky Connect Transceiver. All wiring is 18-22AWG, and should use Mil Spec

22759/16 or 27500/18 wire or wire deemed appropriate to the aircraft type by the governing aviation regulatory agency. See the appropriate following Sections for the schematics of your system for wiring examples.

See Table 1 above for recommendations of discreet switches to be installed when not installing a Sky Connect control head with internal switches.

Note: Sky Connect telephony systems are generally considered non-essential and should be treated as such when selecting the appropriate bus for power. The system should be placed behind a nonessential bus. However if the mission of the aircraft deems the Sky Connect System safety sensitive, the essential buss may be used. An electrical load analysis may be required when doing so.

TRACKER SYSTEM

INSTALLATION

NOTE:

All added features to the Tracker, such as Altitude Trigger, and Change of Flight Plan feature can increase the cost of operation of the tracker.

Check with your operations department prior to turning on features that may increase the cost of operation. Once the data is sent over the system, there will be a charge for the use of the data.

4.1

TRACKER SYSTEM COMPONENTS

4.1.1

4.1.2

TRANSCEIVER

The Tacker transceiver is identical to the unit in Section 3 in physical form.

The Tracker transceiver is not full telephony as the Executive, FlightDeck, and Classic. The dialing is done through software using the SOP Dialers or through the MMU when connected.

CONFIGURATION MODULE

The Configuration Module (ICM) part number 1616-905-01, if used should be installed within 8” to the 62 pin connector and secured to the harness. The configuration module stores settings external to the transceiver and also provides a female connector for easy connection to a PC via straight PC cable for system configuration. The purpose of the module is to alleviate the need to reprogram to an individual aircraft if units are shifted amongst the fleet.

Removal and replacement of the Sky Connect Transceiver with a different unit will keep the Users stored settings the same, though a tail number to serial number configuration mismatch will be logged as a security procedure via the iridium network. Theft for re-use of the Sky Connect Tracker is impractical, as not only do we know who you are, but exactly where you are!

Regardless, the configuration procedure only needs to occur once, or when a configuration module is replaced. An additional use for the configuration module would be to update all of the phone numbers in a fleets system. This becomes a time saving device allowing one module to program each aircraft, only necessitating the update of the individual tail numbers.

The male connector on the ICM connects via 6 wires to the 62 pin connector of the Tracker system. The female connector is the configuration port for both the ICM and the Tracker itself. If the configuration module is in place during programming, settings are saved to the transceiver and to the ICM. If

4 - 1

4.1.3

1616-964-12

Date: 7/27/2011

Rev. 2.1

the ICM is connected at startup, the configuration is read from the ICM. If it is not present at startup, the system uses its internal memory which is re-flashed by the ICM at startup when connected.

CONFIGURATION/SIM MODULE

The Configuration/SIM Module (ICSM) part number 1616-905-02, has the same functionality as the Configuration Module but allows for the installation of the SIM card into the module instead of the transceiver. With this setup no card need be installed in the transceiver at all. This allows for the swapping of the unit, and the SIM card to remain with the aircraft. No changes to the aircraft’s phone number. A secondary advantage would be if the customer changed voice providers, the ICSM could be opened and the card installed, eliminating maintenance to the transceiver itself.

NOTE: While the 9 pin female connector on the ICM/ICSM is designed to be connected directly to a PC for programming, the PC should not be connected directly to the 9 or 25 pin female connector used to connect to the ICM/ICSM’s male connector. Only pins 2, 3, and 5 are used for configuration, the remainder of the pins are used internally and damage can be done to the Tracker and the PC if these lines are connected to a PC inadvertently. See wiring diagrams.

TRACKER SOP DIALER

There are two SOP Dialers, a six position and a eleven position. The six position is a very basic design with lighting for the switches but not for the panel. There is no NVIS version of this unit. The eleven position dialer has a back lit face plate and the dimming feature to the panel lights and the annunciators can be separate or together.

This unit is a computer controlled dialer and is very flexible in operation. It communicates with the transceiver over an RS-232 port. This unit can be programmed in the aircraft with new message sets. There are several versions of the MMU/II, but the basic operation of all of them are the same. See the operators manual for a complete description of features.

TRACKER-SOP STRUCTURAL MOUNTING

The Tracker SOP A has eliminated the use of the SatTalk 2 audio controller, and only the RT and the SOP Dialer or MMU need be considered for mounting.

If you are using the original version of the SOP system (P/N 1616-050-03/-04), the

Sat Talk 2 audio controller normally is installed using a flange mounting plate that is supplied and may be attached to the bottom of the audio controller using the existing screws that secure the bottom plate. Using the flange plate, the controller is mounted using four #6 screws in a 6.25” by 2.5” pattern. Alternatively, a bracket can be fashioned to strap the controller in place.

The SOP Dial pad is a Dzus mounted unit. The dimensions are 5.75" x 1.125" with an overall depth of 2.8”, and depth behind panel of 2.1".

The MMU is a Dzus mounted device. Dimensions are 5.75" x 1.9" with a depth behind the panel of 5.5"

4.3

TRACKER WIRING

Follow the installation drawing 1616-910-XX for the interconnection of the Tracker system into the aircraft. As always pay close attention to the notes that apply to that drawing. Wiring of the Tracker system is mission specific. Tracker can be entirely standalone, or tied to multiple aircraft systems. The Tracker system is designed to be extremely flexible with open architecture. Switched input options are limited only by the customer and the specific capabilities of the GIS software used for aircraft tracking.

The SatTalk 2 for the Tracker-SOP system requires approximately 80 ma at any voltage between 10 and 32 VDC and must be protected by an external fuse or circuit breaker. Tracker SOP “A” and MMU does not use the SatTalk 2.

Note: this applies to both the 6 and 11 position SOP

Dialers. These units need a lighting supply to make the annunciators turn on, so plan this part of the installation carefully. If you have a dimmer buss that does not supply full voltage when the dimmer is off, then a two stage dimmer will need to be designed to allow for Bright/Dim operation.

The SOP dialer should be powered through either a bright/dim switch, or through a rheostat. If not connecting the dialer to a dimmer buss, connect to 14/28 VDC through a circuit breaker. The dialer is entirely passive and can be dimmed through a range of 4-11VDC. If two or more dialers are to be installed, they may be wired in parallel with the addition of isolation diodes on the dialer lines, A1, A2, and A4. See wiring drawings for details.

The 11 Position Dialer has the annunciators dimmed from a separate source as the back lighting on the face plate. By default, they are wired separately, but can be connected together either externally or internally by adding a shorting bar across header J2.

J2 jumper

shown installed

The MMU S/N 001 to 100 lighting is controlled from the lighting buss, but the unit does not draw current from the buss. The control is used to “follow” the dimmer buss voltage and when this voltage gets within 20% of the low end of the scale, the unit will illuminate to full brightness for day light use. This is designed for aircraft that loose dimmer voltage when the dimmer is turned off. S/N 101 and later, due to a change in the display, the only dimming allowed is through the face plate knob and menu.

MMU and MMU II - P1 are wired identical with the exception listed above on the dimmer. MMU II also dims through a menu using the knob. MMU II P2 is identical to the connector on the PTA12-X00. Either a MMU or a PTA-12 can be removed and the correct dash number MMU II be installed in its place.

See paragraph below, for installations that use a MMU and a GPS that does not supply altitude data, the serializer may be input through the diagnostics port. This should be done using the 9 pin connector as on the drawings, so the serializer may be disconnected when time to connect a PC.

The best way to load a MSet into the MMU II is through the connector P/J19 as shown in the installation drawings. This is a pigtail that is to be provided to the customer so the MSet can be loaded without removing the MMU II from the aircraft. Please make sure this connector is provided in all the installations.

When using an external GPS receiver, in order for the Tracker to include aircraft altitude in the data that is sent to the ground, a Garmin GPS receiver (430/530/480, etc) must be used in order to get altitude data from the navigation RS-232 data stream.

For GPS receivers such as the KLN-90B, KLN-900, etc which DO NOT supply altitude in their serial stream, a source of serial altitude data in the Icarus (Garmin) format at 9,600 baud must be supplied to the Tracker. There are multiple sources available for serial altitude data in this format including certain Garmin transponders, encoders with a serial output, and the Icarus 3000U serializer. Please consult technical support for further details.

Annunciators (optional)

Annunciator #1 - This is the status light of the tracker. This light if connected will;

A.) Flash the version of the tracker software as a portion of the POST

(power on self test)

B.) Indicate the condition of the tracker. Steady light with a flicker on the report interval. Or flash an SOS pattern when the tracker is seeing a problem condition.

Annunciator #2 - This light will indicate by flashing, an incoming call or flash with the ring of an out going call. Once the call is picked up or answered, this output remains low (to ground) for the duration of the call. When the call is terminated, the output will go to a high.

Annunciator #3 - The Link light will indicate to the operator the condition of the satellite RF level being picked up by the transceiver. Any level of signal lower than 4 the light be illuminated. Phone calls can be made, but may be dropped at this level, tracking will not reliably occur.

Annunciator #4 - Lights to indicate a system failure. First flash the software version in sync with annunciator #1. Then illuminates until the system is registered on the Iridium network. Once registered, it extinguishes and only lights again if a system fault is detected.

MMU/MMU II Annunciators - The MMUs have their own annunciator that will illuminate a light for the following reasons;

Incoming Message - To provide a heads up indication to the pilot if the MMU is installed out of the scan view of the pilot, the “Incoming MSG” light will blink slowly for five seconds.

Incoming Call - As above the “Incoming Call” light will flash with the ring of the phone to allow the pilot to know there is an incoming call if the audio monitor switch is off.

POST INSTALLATION TESTING

No testing can occur until a valid SIM card is installed in a transceiver, the PIN code turned off, and the account has been activated with an Iridium service provider.

Systems are generally shipped with a SIM card installed, with the PIN code disabled, and the service inactive. The customer is responsible for this activation as the customer receives the bills for the phone use. This process can take some time, and should be done in advance of the installation/testing.

4.4.1 MMU II CONFIGURATION

4.4.1.1

Entering Installer Configuration mode is one CCW pushed-in detent of the rotary knob while pressing the ‘*’ key from either the Ready page, or from the initial MMU splash display page. The following parameters may be set in Configuration mode:

Config Version - Internal use, for informational purposes. This description is valid for Config Version 2.

4.4.1.2

WiFi Channel - Select the WiFi channel the MMU should use, or “No” to deselect WiFi. Note: to shutoff WiFi completely, you must select and save a value of “No” and then power-cycle the MMU. (only appears for MMUs with

WiFi capability)

NOTE: Wi-Fi usage on the aircraft in flight requires the aircraft to have a EMI test against interference from TPEDs (Transmitting Personal Electronic Devices).

This would be any device carried on to the aircraft that would emit 802.11 Wi-Fi signals. The MMU II itself transmits approx. 10mw of 802.11 signal. TPEDS can produce as much as 4 watts of 802.11 signal when searching for a hot spot. IF you are to use TPEDS, the EMI test must be complied with on your aircraft with your suit of avionics as installed.

4.4.2 MMU II Master vs. Slave Configuration

This configuration will allow two MMU IIs to be used connected to one transceiver.

The function here, since the RS485 has not yet been implemented, would be to allow two MMU IIs to connect and carry on a phone conversation as in a party line situation. The Slave will not be able to indicate signal strength as that is a function of the RS232 control line and not implemented as part of this feature... yet.

Full operation of the MMU II in a master slave relationship will require implementation of the RS485 control bus. This is not yet released and when it is all slaves will function as the master does in an installation.

To configure two MMU IIs to communicate over POTS line with one transceiver, follow the below procedure.

Perform the following configuration and testing with reference to the MMU II

DO NOT SKIP CONFIGURING THE TRACKER.

Tracker Setup using the MMU II as a setup device.

If you are installing a MMU II in the system, the MMU II maybe used as a terminal to allow Tracker Setup without a PC connected to the transceiver. Follow the procedures below to use the MMU II for this purpose.

4.7

TRACKER TESTING

In order to fully test Tracker, you will need access to a PC running Sky Connect

Tracker-Map, or an approved GIS display system. In the event that this is not available to you, contact Sky Connect Technical Support where we can remotely aid in your testing. Refer to Appendix A for additional troubleshooting advice.

The installer can verify the proper wiring of every onboard component with a combination of the Tracker Setup program and the “all in one” annunciator light.

The installer can be assured that their portion of the job is acceptable if the onboard unit consistently indicates that it is sending and completing messages.

6 or 11 position dialer - this is indicated by a fast pulse as messages are sent at programmed intervals, followed by a solid green indication.) It is the customer’s responsibility to choose the manner in which they display their “tracked” aircraft, not the installers.

MMU - this is indicted when the “READY” page is displayed with the current signal strength.

Note: Only one Iridium source can occupy the network at one time. If a Sky

Connect voice option is installed and in use, the Tracker will store and send position reports when the line is free. Configurations will exist to give

Tracker priority, thus discontinuing an in-progress call.

Using ground power, turn on the Aircraft master, avionics master, or what ever is required to fully power all elements of the installed Sky Connect components. If a

G.P.S. is interfaced, it must be operating and have acquired satellites. The aircraft must have an unimpeded view of the sky. Operating next to a hangar can cause occasional brief signal interruption of both G.P.S. and Iridium functions. If using an

Rev. 2.1

internal G.P.S., allow the unit to run for up to 15 minutes on the initial startup to allow the internal G.P.S. to acquire almanac data. Allow one minute for the system to register on the iridium network.

Within this registration time, Tracker will generate a start up message which will be sent via the Iridium network to our switching network, and then to the mapping system. At this time, (approximately 24 seconds after the message was generated) a data block will be available to your Tracking Provider. With some software systems there may be a delay up to 1 ½ minutes before the aircraft is seen on your GIS.

Giving the G.P.S. a destination waypoint, and if possible some speed, will send additional parameters to the mapping system for display, including Destination,

Speed, Altitude, Flight Plan, etc.

IMPORTANT - Using the TRACKER SETUP program, you can test most of the features of the installation with the exception of the full network test. Any contact closures that were installed for use with Tracker can be tested at this time as well. No messages will be sent while the Tracker Setup program is connected and running. Messages will resume, roughly one minute after the

Tracker Setup program is terminated.

From the main page, you can verify the G.P.S. position, speed, and altitude. The units

IMEI # and G.P.S. input type are displayed when known. The Iridium Signal strength

(0-5) and Modem status are displayed and updated in real time.

From the Switch configuration page you can select the type and rate of each switch input, but you can also test to verify the input. The Setup program samples the incoming switches every ten seconds to see if they are active. The switch status will display as on if a ground is applied to the corresponding pin, and off if the line is floating.

Each closure will also generate a specific event at the PC running the mapping system software. The program must have an “assignment” for the event triggers to accomplish their task. The assignment for contact closure #2, for example, can be assigned on the mapping system PC terminal to annunciate “Mission Aborted.” The important element here is that the contact closure number is accurate to the specific switch being tested. Purposes for these switches are defined by the end user. For more clarity on this programming, refer to the mapping system operation manual.

Should you desire to use our Tech Support for these tests, you will need to have available the Transceiver Serial Number, IMEI#, aircraft flight ID, and installed options/configuration. With power applied, Tracker will continue to generate

Note: Programmed interval directly affects customer billing.

Consult with end user regarding all available configuration options before accomplishing.

OPERATION

4.8.1

TRACKER

The Sky Connect Tracker system consists of the transceiver and L-band antenna, as well as an additional module in the transceiver. The Tracker can be added to any system but works autonomously of them. The Tracker can utilize a feed from most panel mounted G.P.S. systems, or its own internal

G.P.S. (when equipped with separate active G.P.S. antenna). This feed of aviation data provides Tracker with aircraft flight parameters such as latitude, longitude, speed, direction, altitude, and flight plan information if available.

The Tracker utilizes Short Burst Messaging over the Iridium network to send this flight information packet to ground terminals for the monitoring of fleet aircraft. Regular reporting intervals of twelve seconds to greater than 30 minutes can be set for the triggering of a flight information packet. Three separate rates can be selected based on flight status.

In addition to interval reporting, changes in flight parameters, proximity to waypoint, or “events” can trigger reports. Events can be triggered by contact closures, such as a squat switch, or an emergency button. DC level inputs may require external diode protection. While no external switching or annunciation is required for the Tracker system to operate, it can contain up to eight external event switches, and four status annunciators. It is recommended that at least one annunciator be installed in a suitable location which would provide verification of a completed message transaction. This annunciator would alert the user to the system status and a reception (or lack thereof) of the flight information packet at the Iridium Gateway.

Examples of Event Switch usage would be;

Engine Oil Pressure

Low Rotor RPM

Engine Out

Engine Fire

Engine Chip

Gear Box Chip

Any of the above that will trigger a switch closeure, a ground to turn on a lamp, can be used to trigger an event report from the Tracker. Relays may be used to isolate “required” systems from “non required” or simply diodes.

The options and variation here are far too complex and vary to cover all of them in a STC project. This type of interface will have to be approved by your local airworthiness authority, and NOT from this manual as it is only intended to be offered as a guide as to how to use these features.

TRACKER SOP A

Tracker SOP A is a new version of the original Tracker SOP but without the need for the SatTalk II audio controller component. The audio operations of the SatTalk 2 are now included in the Tracker SOP “A” transceiver. This brings the operational characteristics of the Tracker SOP “A” model to the same as any remote mounted Comm transceiver. This unit can be operated with or without an audio panel, and needs no external amplification of the phone audio.

Most audio panels only support ½ duplex, or push-to-talk communications.

For obvious reasons, this is somewhat limiting for phone conversations. The reason Full Duplex audio panels are recommended for proper operation is to retain the full transmission capabilities of your on board communications transceivers. In a full duplex system, Comm 3 is devoted to the Satellite phone, while Comm 1 and 2 are the VHF Transceivers. When a call is initiated, Comm 3 is selected and communications happen as they would on a phone; without the need to push-to-talk. Meanwhile, the pilot is still able to monitor his on board radios, and if necessary, key the Mic to allow conversations on the VHF Transceiver.

In a half duplex audio panel, keying on any transceiver line will cause the muting of all other sources of incoming audio. Safety of flight can be compromised in this fashion by muting an incoming call from ATC while holding down the key to communicate on the phone.

It is strongly recommended that a Full Duplex audio panel such as the PS

Engineering PMA7000B or NAT AMS50 be used when interfacing the SatTalk

II (or the SOP Model “A”) as a transceiver.

SOP DIALER

With both SOP Dialer panels it is recommended that if you do not have a dimmer circuit that maintains voltage with the dimmer off, that you connect the lights to a two stage dimmer circuit.

MMU/II

See the MMU/II Operator’s Manual for a detail description of the MMU/II.

The MMU/II communicates with the transceiver over an RS-232 port. This is a three wire port. The MMU/II is fully user configurable and offers a great deal of flexibility to the system.

The MMU/II was designed to replace our legacy SOP Dialer to enhance the functions offered to the SOP System.

The MMU/II can store a great number of phone numbers with an alpha identifier to better detail who you are dialing.

The MMU/II provides a user interface to an external Iridium transceiver, allowing a user to control voice calls and send & receive text SBD messages.

The MMU contains a 2-line, 16 character alphanumeric display and a rotary knob with a pushbutton action. External I/O includes an RS232 port.

The MMU/II is loaded with a “Message Set”, which is saved in Flash memory.

The Message Set contains configuration data, the names and phone number choices for voice dialing, and the complete set of text messages that can be selected by the user for transmission to the ground. The Message Set may be loaded on the ground via the MMU’s RS232 port.

1616-964-12

Rev. 2.1

The MMU/II communicates with the map application via binary SBD messages. Mobile Terminated (“MT”) messages are sent from the ground to the MMU, and Mobile Originated (“MO”) messages are sent from the MMU to the ground. These messages are sent to and from the Map.

Phone numbers and messages are created for the MMU/II by using a Sky

Connect program called MSETgen (MMU) or Mset Manager (MMU II). This program will create a message set of phone numbers and canned messages to be loaded into the MMU with its companion program called MMULoad (MMU only). MMULoad uses the RS-232 port to update the internal software as well as load new message sets into the MMU. MMU II uses the Mset Manager to load the MSet.

The MMU/II does not contain the switches found on the legacy SOP Dialer, but those switches are offered by part number for parties interested in installing them as an option. With MMU/II, the switches are wired to the

Transceiver.

The MMU/II supports driving two annunciators to indicate when a call is coming in and when a message is incoming.

Send flight plan information using the G.P.S. data as To/From reference. FP data will contain; TO/FROM waypoints, ETA, Number of PAX, and Fuel on

Board in Pounds.

The MMU will control the volume of the LBT through its serial port. The

MMU has a signal strength indicator in its display.

MMU to self test. MSet version, and the internal MMU software version will be displayed.

If you never get past the MMU starting page, check the wiring between the

MMU and the transceiver to make sure it is wired correctly, and that the wires are not open or shorted.

Next the MMU will communicate with the transceiver, and display the software version of the transceiver, and the Iridium component internal to the transceiver, should be Trkr 4.X and ISOX00X. This indicates that the MMU and the transceiver can communicate.

Next the MMU displays “waiting system registation”, at this point the transceiver is attempting to register with the Iridium satellites, checking signal strength, and activation of that SIM card.

If you never get past this message, the transceiver is not registering with the satellites, this could be a wiring problem between the CSM module if installed, or a problem with antenna or antenna coax. All coax connections should be checked, and the coax itself should be tested for continuity, open and if possible a TDR for the integrity of the coax.

Next the MMU should indicate “Ready” and display the signal strength.

Refer to the MMU and MMU II Operators Manual or the Pilot’s Guide for further operation instructions.

APPENDIX A Troubleshooting

TROUBLESHOOTING THE SKY CONNECT SYSTEMS

Description of Problem

TRACKER SYSTEMS

Tracker System light flashes software rev, shortly thereafter the light goes solid and remains solid.

There are no transmissions and the light never winks even when it’s sending interval has been passed.

Table 12

Possible Causes

Verify that you are not currently connected to the Tracker Setup Program, or the diagnostic port.

If a separate Data connector (9 wire for PC calls) has been installed, check shielding of the cable. You may need to install an

Icarus Instruments data feed through connector.

After running the Tracker Setup software the boxes in the window do not populate.

Contact Technical Support.

Make sure that you waited the full 2 minutes to allow the transceiver to complete the power on test before starting the Tracker Setup software.

Make sure you have a true 9 pin serial port connection, and that you are not using a

USB adapter.

Call tech support.

Rev. 2.1

Description of Problem

Tracker system light pulses, and goes solid, but winks off every five seconds. It continues to pulse, then goes solid followed by the wink off without any pause

(constantly trying to transmit).

Possible Causes

No communication is being made with the

Iridium Network.

Verify Signal Strength using Tracker Setup

Program.

Verify unit is outside, clear of obstructions

(hangars).

Verify customers service plan is fully activated with Service provider.

Verify that Inmarsat system, if on aircraft is deactivated or properly filtered.

Verify cable length and type is appropriate to achieve not more than 3dB loss at 1.6

GHz.

Check antenna placement on aircraft to be free of obstructions or shadowing.

Verify SIM Card PIN is deactivated. SIM comes de-pinned from factory, but a change in SIM card in the field can cause problems.

Check all antenna connections and cable.

Contact the Factory.

Rev. 2.1

Description of Problem

MMU display never reaches the “READY” page

Possible Causes

The initial power on test of the MMU and hand shaking with the transceiver should follow the below sequence.

2.

3.

1.

4.

The MMU should indicate software version and MSet version

MMU will display a “MMU

Starting”message.

After a pause, the MMU should display the Tracker Transceiver software and the software in the

LBT. This would be at least V4.7, and ISO6004.

MMU should display “Ready” and the signal strength.

If you don’t see the MMU version the MMU has failed. If you do not see the transceiver version, the communication between the

MMU and the transceiver has failed.

Check wiring between the MMU and

Transceiver in the later case.

If you never see the Ready Page, the unit has not registered on the Iridium network.

Check SIM card activation, antenna and antenna coax.
