Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Wednesday, 4 March 2015

Honeywell Aerospace has signed a memorandum of understanding with OneWeb under which Honeywell will provide aircraft equipment and airtime services to bring the benefits of OneWebs planned satellite constellation to business, commercial and military aircraft.

OneWeb is building a constellation of more than 600 satellites, which will provide approximately 10 terabits per second of high-speed Internet access to billions of people around the world, even in the most remote areas.

When launched, OneWebs constellation will be the largest telecommunications constellation in orbit, enabling more capacity with higher speed and lower latency than any satellite technology to date. The OneWeb satellite constellation is expected to be operational in approximately four years.

Under the agreement, Honeywell will provide business jet, commercial airline and military aviation customers with aircraft hardware and airtime services that could include weather, navigation and health monitoring of the aircraft via the OneWeb satellite constellation. In addition, Honeywell will work with OneWeb to explore in-orbit satellite equipment supply for the 600-plus satellite constellation.

At Honeywell, our goal is to expand inflight connectivity through ambitious technology innovation, said Carl Esposito, vice president, Marketing and Product Management, Honeywell Aerospace. By leveraging OneWebs satellite network, we can bring the benefits of connectivity to new customers, improving aircraft efficiency, safety, comfort and security.

Greg Wyler, chief executive officer, OneWeb Ltd, said, Our mission is to enable affordable Internet access for everyone. By partnering with Honeywell, we can bring the benefits of affordable, low-latency broadband to business, commercial and military aircraft. We look forward to working with Honeywell, which has unparalleled expertise in aerospace connectivity, as a key partner in advancing global connectivity.
