Aspire 200: Special Missions – Delivering Connectivity When it Matters Most!
The Aspire 200 SwiftBroadband Satcom is Honeywell’s most economical connectivity solution offering high speed data capability. With Aspire 200 both cabin voice and data connectivity are delivered with a single-channel of SwiftBroadband service. Designed as a compact, lightweight Satcom solution, the Aspire 200’s high level of performance and two antenna options make it the ideal choice for smaller business, general aviation, helicopters and special operation aircraft
Recent STC’s achieved through our authorized channel partners mean that the Aspire 200 system is now available for King Air, Viking DHC6-400 Twin Otter and ProLine 21 equipped Hawker 800XP, 850XP and 900XP aircraft. The Aspire system also provides connectivity for helicopters as Honeywell’s technology allows signal transmission thru the rotor blades during flight, allowing data and video upload / download during a helicopter mission. Honeywell holds STCs for the AS350, B429, AW139 and UH-60 helicopters and is pursuing STCs on several other helicopter models. Many of these aircraft undertake special missions such as medical evacuation, maritime search and surveillance, reconnaissance, as well as air taxi services in remote areas. These operations often take pilots beyond the range of GPS mobile connectivity – and with vital data often required to complete a mission successfully, Aspire 200 offers a reliable and high speed connection when it matters most.
The satellite-based Aspire 200 works on the ground, below and above 10,000 feet, providing passengers and crew with a means to remain connected, vital in today’s ever-connected world. From the moment they board the aircraft until they disembark, Aspire ensures they remain connected, whether it’s with base command, local emergency services, the office – and even family or friends.
