System Guide for the

Airbus A320/A330/A340 SATCOM
This Honeywell SATCOM System Guide is intended as a training aid to the operation of the MCS SATCOM System in the A320/A330/A340 aircraft. In no case will this guide be used as an authorized check list or procedural aid replacing FAA or other certifying authority--approved flight manuals or check lists. Contact the pilots at Honeywell Flight Technical Services at (602) 436--1446 with any aircrew--related questions, problems, or comments. Pilots using the avionics system described in this document are required to maintain lateral and vertical situational awareness at all times through the use of current and approved en route, sectional, and other navigational charts. The avionics system herein described is designed to provide pilots with a TSO C-129 (A1) navigation capability. However, pilots are advised to use all available flight-following techniques appropriate for the phase of flight, to insure that a valid mental picture of the desired route is maintained at all times.

The crew can preempt passenger calls to place higher priority calls or they can queue flight deck calls for future placement when a channel is available. The guide contains details sufficient to answer the majority of questions generated through system use. Pilot Overview This handbook describes the satellite communication (SATCOM) and the operation of the Honeywell/Racal Multi-Channel System (MCS) 6000 satellite communications equipment as installed on the A320/A330/A340 aircraft.

Voice capability is determined by the elevation of the four geostationary satellites above the horizon with relation to the aircraft location. An automatic handover is not initiated when voice calls or data transmissions are in progress. seat assignments. and baggage/parcel tracing. Channel availability is displayed on the MCDU channel status display page. Data service automatically resumes following a successful handover.

System Guide

The scratchpad is used to enter data and display system-generated messages:
D

Data Entry -- The pilot pushes the alphanumeric keys to enter them on the scratchpad. After a valid entry is made, the pilot pushes the appropriate line select key adjacent to the field in which data is to be entered. The system checks the scratchpad data for format and acceptability (out-of-range, entry not allowed into the field, etc.). If the data is correct, the system enters that data into the selected field on the display. If the data is incorrect, the system rejects the entry and issues a scratchpad message. Scratchpad Messages -- If, after trying to enter data as described above, the system determines that the entry does not conform to format or acceptability requirements, the system issues a scratchpad message that prompts the pilot for the correct data. The user can clear a scratchpad message by pushing the CLR (clear) key or by overwriting data into the scratchpad to replace the message. Message Text NOT ALLOWED Meaning This message is issued whenever the following occur: D An LS (line select) key is pushed adjacent to a blank field.

An attempt is made to revert an unprotected priority field back to a non--existent default value. An attempt is made to initiate a data loader action when no asterisk is displayed adjacent to the action prompt.

CHECK NETWORK ID

This message is issued whenever a phone number entry meets the format criteria before the optional network ID is entered, but it contains an invalid network ID. If an optional network ID is appended to a phone number entry, it must be preceded by a single slash “/”, followed by one of two numeric characters.
