Supplemental Type Certificate issued to Tempus Applied Solutions for non-federated FANS/ADS-B [Solution AA]
Tempus Applied Solutions LLC, a Tempus Jets sister company, has been awarded FAA approval, in the form of a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC), for Tempus’ initial FANS 1/A and ADS-B compliance solution [(Tempus Applied Solutions’ “Solution AA”)].
Although initially conformed on a Gulfstream III aircraft, Tempus’ solution has received an “Approved Model List”, or AML, STC, which means that it can be applied to any business and commercial aircraft. The modification includes the installation of a non-federated (standalone) UNS-1FW FMS; as well as a new UNS ACARS UL-801 Unilink; UNS CVR-120R digital Cockpit Voice Recorder (CVR); ICG/Rockwell-Collins ICS-220A Satcom; and TDR-94D Rockwell-Collins transponders. Tempus Applied Solutions has also released configurations for its Gulfstream IV and Global Express clients, and is currently selecting its next installation platforms.
“We are very enthusiastic about the recent award of the FANS/ADS-B STC by the FAA; it will be an extremely affordable and robust solution for a large number of aircraft types,” said Scott Terry, Tempus Applied Solutions CEO. “Our engineering team and our OEM partners, Universal and Rockwell Collins, have created exactly what the market is looking for in terms of an economical means of compliance”.
FANS and ADS-B compliance will be mandated in most parts of the world by 2020. While some newer aircraft are delivered from the OEM with compliant systems, many older, large-cabin business jets will require extensive upgrades in order to comply with FANS/ADS-B mandates. Tempus Applied Solutions expects to provide STC kits and turnkey modification and installation services to a wide array of commercial and government business jet owners and operators.
