Talon Air Maintenance Services, International Communications Group's Farmingdale, N.Y.-based lead dealer, has completed the first installation of an ICG SB-200 Sora Lite advanced Inmarsat high-speed data and voice satellite communications system on a Cessna Model 650 jet.

The stand-alone system replaced a Flitephone VI unit with a cabin wireless handset, a cockpit jet phone and RJ45 network 10 base T jacks to provide background IP service supporting 200 Kbps of Internet connectivity and voice communication to both the cabin and the cockpit. Cobham's SDU-7310 Satellite Data Unit, HLD-7260 combined high-power amplifier/low noise amplifier/diplexer and low-gain Inmarsat antenna completed the package.
