Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 6 May 2011

ARINC has launched two new remote ground stations (RGS) in Langkawi and Miri, Malaysia, to enhance aviation data link communications services in the country.

The deployment is in line with ARINCs plan to expand GLOBALink SM/VHF coverage in Asia Pacific, and brings the total of ARINC remote ground stations in Malaysia to seven, including current installations in Kuala Lumpur, Kuching, Kota Kinabalu and Penang.

The new deployments were accomplished in collaboration with Telekom Malaysia, and will provide enhanced inflight data transfer and communications between airline operations and aircraft flight decks, enabling greater efficiency and on-time performance.

ARINC also plans to deploy three more RGS in the country later this year.

The GLOBALink expansion program in Malaysia is a significant move for us in providing seamless data link communications in the region, said Jim L. Martin, Managing Director, ARINC Asia Pacific. During this project it has been our pleasure to work with Telekom Malaysia, who were instrumental in getting the new ground stations operational.

Mohamed Faisal Naina Mohamed, General Manager, Defence, Security, Aviation and Maritime Sector, Telekom Malaysia Berhad, added, In Telekom Malaysia, our department focuses on the Malaysian aviation industry; especially on specialized technologies for Air Traffic Services. The synergy from our strategic partnership with ARINC as a network provider coupled with our strength in Engineering Logistic Support (ELS) will benefit the industry in this region.

ARINC GLOBALink enables air crews to exchange information with ground crews and airline host systems anywhere in the world without the limitations and interruptions of voice radio. Data link improves flight deck processes and increases efficiency with clear, accurate, and unambiguous messages delivered directly to the crew, via either a cockpit display or a printer.

Because data link also stores messages, flight crews can review and verify all operational instructions for enhanced safety. Compared with voice communications, data link improves flight deck processes and increases efficiency.
