Honeywell’s Satcom Systems to Connect Pilots In-Flight
Honeywell has introduced the Aspire 150 and Aspire 350 satellite communications systems to provide business jet, airline and helicopter operators with better connectivity choices. According to Honeywell, with Aspire 150 and 350, pilots can maintain up-to-date information throughout their flight path.
Both new Aspire systems are smaller than previous generations and have an embedded router, which helps reduce weight and boosts fuel savings. Operators can use the systems to access Iridium Certus services. Aspire 350 also supports global Future Air Navigation System (FANS) datalink for pilots to take advantage of preferred routing worldwide and satellite voice capabilities.
“These latest additions to the Aspire product line provide an easy upgrade for aircraft with or without previously installed satellite communications equipment, increasing both cockpit and cabin connectivity and enabling faster data speed,” said Warren Nechtman, vice president of Honeywell Connectivity Systems.
