Dubai Airshow: Honeywell powering in-flight connectivity with JetWave

Posted 13 November 2017 · Add Comment

Honeywell says it aims to highlight what it means to be fully connected in the aviation industry by promoting its JetWave in-flight connectivity hardware.

JetWave enables both air transport and business aviation customers to access Inmarsat’s GX Aviation high-speed in-flight Wi-Fi broadband service – the business aviation package for GX Aviation is branded Jet ConneX.

Honeywell has two JetWave antenna systems available – a small tail-mount variant for business jets, and a larger fuselage-mounted antenna for commercial airliners and larger VVIP aircraft. When partnered with its JetWave terminal and other hardware they both offer passengers a multi-megabit internet experience close to what they are used to on the ground.

Business aviation platforms supported by JetWave and Jet ConneX, include Bombardier Global models; Dassault Falcon; Embraer Lineage 1000E (in early 2018); Gulfstream G650, G550, and soon the G450; and well as Boeing Business Jets and Airbus Corporate Jets.

Using Inmarsat’s advanced Ka-band satellite network, Jet ConneX currently offers data plans up to 15Mbps and global coverage up to about 82 degrees latitude.

Honeywell says the helicopter industry can also take advantage of higher-speed on-board Wi-Fi, video transmission and telemedicine capability using its Aspire 200 connected aircraft solution.

The Aspire 200 system, combined with Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband high-data rate (HDR) software package, brings high-bandwidth connectivity to the helicopter cabin without being adversely affected by the rotor.

Honeywell was recently awarded a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) supplemental type certificate (STC) for the Aspire 200 satellite communications system on the Airbus Helicopters AS350 and Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk, and has applied for an FAA STC for the Bell 429, while Transport Canada has certified the system on the Bell 429.

European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approvals for these helicopters are also under way. In addition, EASA recently approved the installation of the Aspire 200 system on the Leonardo AW139 helicopter.

Honeywell is also highlighting its GoDirect fuel efficiency software, GoDirect maintenance and service plans for aircraft and helicopters, retrofit, modification and upgrades for the cockpit and cabin, such as Honeywell’s Ovation select cabin management and Primus Elite integrated cockpit, and much more.
