JetWave High-Speed Satellite Communications Hardware Defense

Mission Critical Connectivity For Defense

Honeywell’s JetWave satellite communications system allows users to connect to the Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX), which brings KA-band satellite coverage across the Globe. The Inmarsat Global Express network offers the most extensive global coverage for military airborne operators, including over water, over non-traditional flight paths, and in remote areas, providing the warfighter with a constant command and control link.

For the unique environment of the military operator, JetWave and the Inmarsat Global Xpress network can enable a wide variety of mission-critical applications, such as real-time weather, video conferencing, large file transfer, encryption capabilities, in-flight briefings, ISR video, and secure communications.

And the system is scalable and configurable for the wide variety of military platforms, with antenna options available for large and small airframes. Regardless of the airframe or its mission, JetWave can provide assured, high-speed, high-bandwidth, and secure connectivity to warfighters when and where they need it.
