Tempus Applied Solutions Holdings Inc. (OTC: TMPS) subsidiary Tempus Applied Solutions LLC 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.
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 has also released configurations for its Gulfstream IV and Global Express clients, and is currently selecting its next installation platforms.
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 expects to provide STC kits and turnkey modification and installation services to a wide array of commercial and government business jet owners and operators.
Tempus provides design, engineering, systems integration and flight operations solutions that support critical aviation mission requirements for a variety of customers, including the United States Department of Defense, other US government agencies, foreign governments and select corporations and individuals in the private sector. It is headquartered in Williamsburg, Virginia.
