Honeywell's Aspire® 100 Satellite Communications System takes advantage of the modularity of the whole Aspire product line, with common wiring and interface.
As part of the Aspire family of products, the Aspire 100 provides multiple channels of voice and a low data rate channel over the global Iridium® satellite network. The system utilizes the low-gain Iridium antenna to offer in-flight connectivity, and is installed on the fuselage. The Aspire 100 system is ideal for small to mid-sized aircraft.
The Aspire 100 Satellite Communications System cabin services unit transceiver provides one or two channels of voice and circuit data via the Iridium satellite network.
As part of a complete Aspire system, with an integrated private branch exchange, the transceiver provides complete global telephony services to the cabin, and may also be integrated with other telephony and data systems onboard the aircraft. The transceiver is lightweight and has the same interface and wiring pin-out as its sister high-speed data unit, making it easy to move from Iridium to Inmarsat® when higher data-rate capabilities are required.
- Modular for installation flexibility and convenience
- Common wiring and interface make it easy to switch from Iridium to Inmarsat services
