HIGH-SPEED CONNECTIVITY FOR HELICOPTERS HAS ARRIVED
 
Robust satellite communications have traditionally been difficult to achieve in helicopters. The structural elements of the aircraft – namely the rotor blades – coupled with the noisy and vibration filled in-flight environment have limited the ability of helicopters to connect to new, high-bandwidth networks. In spite of these challenges, Honeywell has developed a solution with a scalable, lightweight and reliable system. Aspire 200, with its High-Data Rate (HDR) software package mitigates the impact of the rotorblades on the satellite signal to bring high-speed, high-bandwidth capabilities to helicopters around the world.
