It is designed to automatically switch between satellites and spot beams based on the Owner Requirements Table as defined in ARINC 781. These preferences would typically give first priority to voice and data safety services and second priority to SwiftBroadband services. The system is compliant with the latest industry standard for Inmarsat SATCOM capability for classic Aeronautical and SwiftBroadband operation.

Key elements of the Collins ARINC 781 SATCOM system include: the SDU-2200 satellite data unit (SDU); the SDU configuration module; and the external flange mounted power amplifier.
