Eclipse Technics, an Eclipse Company, offers innovative retrofit packages for the aviation industry and FAA and EASA certification through the supplemental type certificate (STC) process.

The company provides certifications for the modification and installation of aircraft avionics and connectivity systems. It also provides design, manufacturing and certification of satcom full modkits and systems installation kits. All of these are under EASA, PART21 DOA and POA Agreements.

SITA FOR AIRCRAFT worked with Eclipse Technics to develop the first EASA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) to install Inmarsat GX Aviation. This project certified GX to be brought onboard the Boeing 777 aircraft series.

The development of this first GX Aviation STC was an important step towards the broadband network’s commercial launch, allowing for the installation and activation of connectivity for SITA FOR AIRCRAFT’s Cabin Connectivity Services.

Eclipse Technics has also supported Inmarsat’s European Aviation Network (EAN) program, by supporting STCs for several key commercial aircraft platforms.

“Our cooperation with SITA FOR AIRCRAFT is a good example of how the Eclipse acquisition of Eclipse Technics allows our partners to benefit from Eclipse’s extensive background in satcom issues and Eclipse Technics’s Part 21 skills, to ensure all variables relating to a satcom installation are taken into account when delivering an STC.” – Marc Pinault, General Manager of Eclipse, owner of Eclipse Technics
