An Iridium satellite phone and docking station can provide a very flexible communications system for your helicopter or private jet fleet. The built in capabilities allow voice calls, SMS messaging, emailing and file transfers, and automated GPS position tracking. With a docking station, the phone can be securely mounted in the flight deck while easily deployable for use outside of the aircraft. The docking station can also be easily integrated with your flight deck communications. A PotsDOCK will allow you to connect a standard telephone handset for passenger use. OCENS also provides TSO approved antennas and cabling. See the component descriptions below for more details and please contact OCENS with your specific application needs.
