Aspire 400: Swiftbroadband for Cockpit and Cabin

The Honeywell Aspire 400 Satellite Communications System delivers high-speed voice and data communications for cockpits and cabins in a compact and lightweight package.

The L-band Aspire 400 system utilizes the robust, global Inmarsat I-4 satellite network providing connectivity to the aircraft via single or dual channel SwiftBroadband channels.

The system's 2-MCU Satellite Data Unit (SDU) transceiver unit contains two separate and independent SwiftBroadband channels for fully partitioned and segregated cockpit and cabin channels.

  • For the cockpit, the dedicated channel enables Safety Services over SwiftBroadband satisfying Future Air Navigation System (FANS) requirements.
  • Passengers are able to use the second SwiftBroadband channel for voice and data capabilities in the cabin.

The flexible system includes a variety of antenna options to suit the operators' needs, including:

  • Intermediate Gain Antenna: single- or multi-channel, Class 7, 330 kbps
  • Enhanced Low Gain Antenna: single-channel, Class 4, 200 kbps
  • Low Gain Antenna: single-channel, Class 15, 200 kbps
  • High-Gain Antenna: single- or multi-channel, Class 6, 432 kbps

Honeywell's High-Data Rate (HDR) software upgrade can add more data capability to the system, enabling data speeds of up to 650 Kbps.

Honeywell is a leader in providing connectivity hardware and services to the aerospace industry. With more than 100 years of innovation, Honeywell has a footprint on virtually every commercial, defense and space aircraft that enable more fuel-efficient, connected and safe operations. Aspire 150 and 350 exemplify how Honeywell Aerospace delivers the latest functionalities and technologies in today's connected world.
