Gilat Satellite Networks announced that Honeywell has selected Gilat’s Taurus IFC modem for its JetWave satellite communication system.
The integration of Gilat’s aero-modem will enable Honeywell to offer its JetWave solution within territories as well as to roam in-and-out of territories where Gilat’s ground network is deployed.
The Honeywell-Gilat solution will first be deployed in China over China’s HTS Ka network for both domestic and flights going in-and-out of China, expanding later to additional regions around the globe.
Gilat’s Taurus aero modem has a global track record of providing passenger user experience. Gilat’s IFC solution operates the largest global IFC network with over 1,000 commercial aircraft installed with Gilat’s solution, said Ron Levin VP, Mobility and Global Accounts.
