To safely decrease de-icing turnaround times, dBD Communications has launched a multi-user de-icing pad wireless duplex solution.
The solution enables all de-icers and de-icing vehicle drivers to communicate wirelessly with one another around an aircraft, with a range of up to 150m (or 300m when extended with additional antennas).
- Allows all de-icing operatives to talk and listen at the same time
- Provides uninterrupted wireless communications around the aircraft
- Quickens de-icing and aircraft turnaround times
- Heightens situational awareness (with multiple headsets and mic options)
- Integrates with ramp and ATC radio communications
- The system can be easily moved from team to team
How it works
One de-icing machine holds a dBD Communications flight bag containing an Apollo system base unit that connects the wireless headsets of all de-icing operatives situated within de-icing buckets. This makes it easy to move the solution between different teams.
All de-icing operatives (in buckets) have two communication paths. They can talk openly to the other de-icing operatives and drivers on the pad or communicate with their driver on an individual link.
The de-icing vehicle drivers can also speak freely with the other de-icing operatives and drivers on the pad.
An integrated solution
The solution can also integrate with your ramp or ATC radio communications so that your de-icing operatives are aware of all pad activity.
Wireless Headset Options
There are different headset and microphone options depending on whether your operatives are in a closed or open space.
Open de-icing bucket – Fully blocked headsets (with mic on or mic off buttons)
Closed de-icing bucket/vehicle drivers – Single ear headsets or a speaker and microphone instead of a headset
All wireless headsets, whether fully blocked or single ear, enable excellent uninterrupted wireless communications around the aircraft.
You can even have two or more de-icing pad solutions working side-by-side without interference.
dBD Communications are also exhibiting at the Ground Handling International 23rd Annual Conference in Amsterdam 29th November – 1st December, stand E14 where they will be showcasing their latest innovations.
