TriaGnoSys provides the avionics hardware platform based on its AeroBTS+ for providing business and regional aviation with in-flight information updates on weather conditions and hazards.
The PLANET2 system implements the following main features:
During the descent phase, air pressure and temperature will be sampled at a faster rate and compiled in a descent profile observation report that will be sent through terrestrial networks just after landing.

Because of the successful laboratory and flight tests (on a light aircraft) performed in the first half of 2013, ESA has granted a Contract Change Notice, which includes development of a fully qualified and ETSO certified version of the TriaGnoSys avionics hardware. The new version of the hardware will be built and certified before end of 2013 (note that the specifications may be different from above; without built-in Iridium modem, with built-in LTE modem). For more details including specifications contact Dr. Axel Jahn (firstname.lastname@example.org)
