Say What? Multilingual Communications Behind The Cockpit
Let's face it... business aviation is often as international a pursuit as it gets... so it makes sense that the equipment we use to aviate and communicate be as multilingual as the clientele that uses it.
The TrueNorth Stylus incorporates TrueNorth’s intuitive, one-button interface; HD Voice Quality for near broadcast-quality voice communications; wired and wireless configuration options; and personalization options that include custom materials to match the decor of the applicable cabin or aircraft interior.
Designed to match the footprint of TrueNorth’s previous-generation handsets, the Stylus is the first sleek, modern interpretation of an airborne handset design, and can be programmed to operate in any language, including those with dedicated character sets such as Chinese, Japanese, Arabic and Russian.
The Stylus handset’s capabilities are enabled in part by TrueNorth’s software-centric Simphone (pronounced ‘symphony’) OpenCabin telecommunications system, which brings reliability, operator control and communications capabilities to business aviation. Since previous airborne telecom systems were heavy, complex, expensive to install and operate, and prone to obsolescence, TrueNorth tells ANN that they have developed a solution that addressed all those concerns, with benefits that include robust performance; an unlimited lifespan; significant long-term cost savings; and the ability to easily add a wide variety of custom features.
