Inmarsat and Honeywell Partner on U.S. Government Solutions
Inmarsat and Honeywell are teaming up to deliver a new set of solutions to the U.S. government, the two companies announced April 27. The solutions will be focused on fixed-wing and non-fixed wing aeronautical platforms operating worldwide, including in Arctic regions. The agreement extends the companies’ comsatcom services to U.S. defense customers.
Inmarsat and Honeywell will offer U.S. government users access to a suite of products and services across Inmarsat’s networks operating in L-band, as well as in the commercial and military Ka-bands. L-band frequencies are lower radio frequencies between the 1 and 2 GHz range employed for a variety of applications to include highly resilient mobility satellite communications. Ka-band radio frequencies in the 26 to 40 GHz range offer higher throughput for satellite communications and other applications.
“We are delighted to expand our partnership with Honeywell to deliver Inmarsat innovation and world-class aeronautical satellite communications services to government users worldwide. We are excited about the prospects that this new relationship will bring to this very dynamic and challenging market,” Susan Miller, chief executive officer, Inmarsat Government said in a statement.
The two companies are already working together in the In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) arena, so this collaboration is another partnership on the part of Inmarsat and Honeywell.
