Honeywell receives certification for Satellite Communications System on Dassault Falcon 7X business Jet

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that the Honeywell MCS-7120 Satellite Communications System has been type certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on the Dassault Falcon 7X business jet.

The Honeywell MCS-7120 Satellite Communications System is an integrated communication system for both cabin and cockpit communications that provides fast, reliable, global connectivity via the Inmarsat SwiftBroadband or classic satellite network.

"Honeywell's satellite communications technology integrates seamlessly with the Primus Epic® based avionics to provide the security and capability today's businesses need to stay productive while in the air," said Brian Sill, vice president of Business & General Aviation Aftermarket, Honeywell Aerospace. "Operators can add their satellite communications to the Honeywell Avionics Protection Program on the aircraft, providing a simple, one-stop service for extended warranty coverage."

The Inmarsat Swift Broadband service is capable of providing five times more bandwidth per channel than the current on demand circuit mode Swift-64 (64Kbps) service, up to 432Kbps per channel. Integral data compression can increase throughput by up to 100 percent, depending on the data. In addition, the Swift Broadband is an "always on" Internet Protocol (IP) connection, resulting in significantly higher service reliability, availability and overall user experience.

The Honeywell MCS-7120 Swift Broadband System combines a standalone satellite terminal (model HD-710) with a Cabin Communications Gateway System that includes an IP-PBX, network router and wireless access point (models CG-710 and CR-710). The MCS-7120 system provides integrated voice and high-speed data communications for cabin and cockpit applications over a wide range of services.
