Honeywell’s new Satellite System provides High-Speed Connectivity at a Low Cost

honeywell logoHoneywell is providing business jet, airline and helicopter operators with better connectivity choices thanks to the introduction of the Aspire 150 and Aspire 350 satellite communications systems.

With Aspire 150 and 350, pilots can maintain up-to-date information throughout their flight path, and operators can use this Connected Aircraft technology to experience global, seamless high-speed connectivity in a small, lightweight solution.

The Aspire 150 and 350 systems are simple to install, minimizing upgrade costs and aircraft downtime. Both new Aspire systems are also smaller than previous generations and have an embedded router, which helps reduce weight and boosts fuel savings.

The newest Aspire systems will provide Iridium Certus services, Iridium's next-generation communications platform, on the new Iridium NEXT network. One of the largest technology upgrades ever completed in space, Iridium NEXT will complete its launch in 2018, replacing the existing Iridium network to meet the growing demand for global mobile communications. By using Iridium Certus services, operators can reduce costs by up to 30 percent compared with legacy satellite communications offerings. Aspire 350 also supports global Future Air Navigation System (FANS) datalink for pilots to take advantage of preferred routing worldwide, and satellite voice capabilities.

High-Speed Connectivity for Any Aircraft

The Aspire 150 provides affordable, fast, reliable connectivity. The system offers operators:

The Aspire 350 offers operators all the technical features of the Aspire 150 along with:

Both Aspire 150 and Aspire 350 can operate as standalone products to provide high-speed cabin connectivity to smaller aircraft that cannot be equipped with a larger satcom system. The flexibility of the Aspire products also allows for side-by-side operation with another cabin connectivity solution, providing cockpit safety services and backup cabin connectivity.
