Honeywell To Provide Satellite Communications To Embraer KC-390 Military Transport Aircraft
The antenna will provide the KC-390 with voice and data communications capabilities using the Inmarsat network to deliver advanced data link features for Communication Navigation Surveillance (CNS) and Air Traffic Management (ATM). By using the network, data can be sent and received “real time,” enabling a continuous stream of communications to help flight crews maximize operations both on the ground and in the air.
Honeywell has a long history of developing and delivering dual-use, civilian and military technologies — including satellite communications (SATCOM) and supporting avionics — to meet commercial, government and military customer requirements worldwide. As military operators move toward greater connectivity, SATCOM capabilities have become increasingly important to ensure effective and efficient field performance.
