Honeywell Certified To Bring Wi-Fi To Helicopters 27 Oct, 17, Source: Honeywell
Honeywell was awarded a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) supplemental type certificate (STC) for the Aspire 200 satellite communications system on the Airbus Helicopters AS350 and Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk and have applied for an FAA STC for the Bell 429, while Transport Canada has certified the system on the Bell 429. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approvals for those helicopters are also underway. In addition, EASA recently approved the installation of the Aspire 200 system on the Leonardo AW139 helicopter.
Honeywell’s system provides reliable connectivity service for helicopters, enabling constant communication, even when in remote areas. The Aspire 200 system, combined with the SwiftBroadband High-Data Rate (HDR) software package, brings high-bandwidth connectivity to the helicopter cabin for the first time while allowing the pilot or operator to mitigate any signal connectivity issues.
“There has always been a need for in-flight connectivity on helicopters, particularly to support VIP, air ambulance, police and military ISR applications,” said Mark Goodman, product director, Honeywell Aerospace. “The small, lightweight Aspire 200 provides a robust, reliable link that works through helicopter rotors.”
To complement Aspire 200, Honeywell’s GoDirect Cabin Connectivity service includes access to a selection of GoDirect apps, such as GoDirect Satcom Toolkit and GoDirect Global Mobile Data, allowing improved productivity with real-time communications through access to emails, videoconferencing and higher-speed broadband transmission. In today’s helicopter environment, Honeywell’s satellite communication systems and services provide a one-stop connectivity shop for fleet owners and operators.

Our high data rate (HDR) upgrade is a software-only solution that can easily be installed in the factory or in the field, where installation takes about an hour. With no hardware change required, it’s the fastest and easiest way to improve SATCOM performance and provide operators, flight crews and passengers with the high-speed connectivity they need for voice and data communications – and even videoconferencing..
Communications Convergence Unit (CCU-200)
The Communications Convergence Unit (CCU-200) is a full-service multi-port router, Wi- Fi® Access Point (802.11 a/b/g) and full-featured PBX (digital and analogue) that supports VoIP, phone directory, call forwarding and three-way calling. The component provides network and telephony connectivity to multiple cabin users with Swift 64, SwiftBroadband systems and offers programmable, digital I/O.
Integrated High-power/Low-noise Amplifier Diplexer (IPLD)
The Integrated High-power/ Low-noise Amplifier Diplexer (IPLD) connects the HDU-200 to the externally mounted aircraft antenna. With an integrated higher-power amplifier, it provides optimal performance of the voice and data communication services over SwiftBroadband or Swift 64, even in adverse conditions. The unit’s integrated Type F diplexer ensures compliance with SwiftBroadband service requirements. The IPLD is rated for installation outside the pressure vessel.
High-speed Data Unit (HDU-200)
The Aspire HDU-200 Transceiver (HDU-200) offers one channel of SwiftBroadband service for simultaneous voice and data connectivity with the Inmarsat I-4 satellite network and fallback to Swift 64 with a high-gain antenna. HDU-200 is designed for flexible installation and can be mounted inside or outside the pressure vessel
AMT-1800 Intermediate-gain Antenna (IGA)
The AMT-1800 is the smallest available Class 7 ARINC781 intermediate-gain Inmarsat antenna that offers up to 332 kbps voice and data service as a part of the Aspire 200 IG communications system. The AMT-1800 IGA operates over the extended L-band frequency range to support operation with the new Inmarsat Alphasat satellite. The antenna’s phased array technology maintains gain at very low angles and meets stringent SwiftBroadband Passive Intermodulation (PIM)requirements.
AMT-700 High-gain Antenna (HGA)
The AMT-700 is a complete ARINC 781 high-gain antenna offering up to 432 kbps of voice and data services over the Inmarsat satellite network. Connected to the IPLD and installed on the empennage of an aircraft’s tail, the antenna’s technology and design (U.S. patent pending) result in the highest gain of any Inmarsat Mechanical High-gain Antenna — achieving greater than 13.5 dBic over the Inmarsat networks.
AMT-3800 High-gain Antenna (HGA)
The AMT-3800 is an ARINC 781 high-gain antenna offering up to 432 kbps of voice and data service over the Inmarsat satellite network. It is mounted on top of the fuselage and connects to the IPLD. The antenna’s phased array technology maintains gain at very low angles and meets stringent SwiftBroadband Passive Intermodulation (PIM) requirements
CNX®-250 Network Accelerator
The CNX-250 Cabin Gateway is a multi-port network router with a data accelerator module that acts as the communications hub for all aircraft data links. The appliance increases the number of network users, the strength of encryption and the speed (data acceleration) of a Satcom or ATG system.
The CNX-250 provides a single cabin network based on Ethernet that supports high-speed data and VoIP communications and is scalable to support future growth and system expansion.
