Collins Aerospace ARINCDirect ADConnect Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) application (app) turns personal cell phones into the aircraft's satellite phone. Instead of being limited by high-priced handsets installed on the aircraft, users can now simply use their iOS or Android-powered device. Since the app accesses contacts on their phone, they don't need to type any telephone numbers. Just select a name and call, anywhere in the world, using a smartphone.

ADConnect is compatible with all aircraft wireless avionics technologies, including systems utilizing Inmarsat L-band, Viasat Yonder Ku-band and Iridium satellite services. Unlike similar apps, each account is dynamically provisioned using a web-based configuration server that sets up accounts based on aircraft tail numbers. Rather than passengers surrendering their phone for hours of setup, they can simply log into the app and select the aircraft they are on – the phone is instantly configured and ready for use.
