Cobham Aerospace Communications has announced a path to simplify ADS-B compliance for its RMS 555 radio system operators.
The technical standard order-certified RMS 555 radio management system is installed on nearly 500 U.S. Military T6-A trainer aircraft, and consists of the RMU-556 radio management unit, KDA-557 RMS data adaptor, and RMS-555 configuration module. It is also installed in rotorcraft and various international fixed-wing military trainer aircraft.
Cobham’s solution will update the RMS 555 system by modifying the software/firmware of the RMU-556 and KDA-557 units. This solution significantly reduces the cost and simplifies the aircraft modification to comply with ADS-B Out requirements by allowing the aircraft configuration and pilot interfaces to remain the same.
