Inmarsat has been the pioneer in providing Classic Aero services for more than 20 years through a range of proven, reliable satellite communication services for the aviation sector that supports a spectrum of functionality, coverage, equipment, installation and usage. Cobham has been a close partner in this journey and together we continue to innovate with new offerings like SwiftBroadband Safety, also enhanced to bring high speed safety services to the cockpit.
Cobham's Aero H+ systems, such as the AVIATOR 700D, provide packet data rates of up to 10.5 Kbps for ACARS, FANS and ATN communications, and up to 9.6 Kbps per channel for multi-channel voice. The service is provided through a high-gain antenna in the global beams of the I-3 and I-4 satellite constellations. Applications include passenger, operational, administrative and safety communications. Once the I-3 satellites are retired, Aero H+ will continue to be provided on the I-4 satellites.
