Honeywell to offer military SATCOM

2nd November 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Honeywell will work with Inmarsat to offer high-speed, high-bandwidth satellite communications capabilities for military use, the company announced on 31 October.

Together, Honeywell’s JetWave satellite communications hardware and Inmarsat’s Global Xpress 'SATCOM as a Service' in-flight broadband service will provide consistent, high-speed, high-bandwidth connectivity for military users, improving overall situational awareness and safety while allowing troops to communicate more effectively.  

Honeywell recently received Inmarsat's type approval for its JetWave aeronautical terminals, giving users access to the Global Xpress network. With this, users will be able communicate with ground forces, transmit mission-critical information, share data between manned and unmanned platforms and host real-time video briefings.

Peter Hadinger, president of Inmarsat's US government business unit, said: 'As the US government seeks to adopt an enterprise-level, integrated architecture to fulfill their requirements and enhance flexibility of operations worldwide, government users are taking advantage of our Global Xpress SATCOM as a Service, as well as accessing our wideband Mil-Ka leased capacity as part of their own independent network.

'We are pleased with the government interest and demand, driven by Global Xpress’ unique global mobility and reliability, seamless interoperability with military satellite resources, and cost-effectiveness.'
