Global Connectivity for Wireless Data Transfer
and Automated Aircraft Data Retrieval
Teledyne Controls' Wireless GroundLink® System (WGL) provides
aircraft operators with an immediate and secure solution to
connect the aircraft to the airline's back office and support
functions as diverse as Flight Data Monitoring, Training,
Maintenance and Operations.
Wireless and Automatic Data Transfer
With WGL, physical media handling and data loss is virtually
eliminated since the system uses wireless cellular technology to
fully automate the recording and transmission of aircraft data. The raw data recorded during
flight is compressed, encrypted and then securely transmitted via Internet directly to the airline's
or Teledyne's ground-based data center for processing and analysis. With the right data at their
fingertips, airlines can not only reduce operating risk and closely monitor safety, but they can also
yield additional benefits, such as fuel savings and lower maintenance costs.
Download on Demand from Remote Destinations
In addition to routine data transfer, the WGL system, with its new Download on Demand (DoD)
feature, enables airlines to remotely command flight data download whenever they need earlier
access to their data, regardless of airport destination, designated hub or gate. The DoD function
allows for timely retrieval of critical flight data from almost any airport worldwide so airlines can
respond to potential issues in record time.
Quick and Reliable Data Recovery
WGL is a proven solution that provides unprecedented data recovery rates close to 100% and
immediate access to flight data. Within 15 minutes after aircraft landing, flight data can be
processed, versus several days or weeks with manual data retrieval methods.
Data Distribution from Desktop to Aircraft
Even more, the WGL system can automate the wireless distribution of navigation databases and
Loadable Software Parts (LSPs) to the aircraft, when used with Teledyne's LoadStar® Server
Enterprise software and Teledyne's enhanced Airborne Data Loader (eADL). The WGL system is
highly connective and provides many benefits across an airline's operation by facilitating wireless
data transfer between the aircraft and the ground.
