Cobham Aerospace Communications has announced a path to simplify ADS-B compliance for their RMS 555 radio system operators.
The TSO-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.
