Honeywell¡¯s Next Generation of JetWave to Bring Unmatched Connectivity Speeds to Business Aviation

Oct 31,2022

Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON) is developing the next generation of its JetWave satellite communications system to lower the cost of inflight, high-speed broadband connectivity while also significantly increasing connection speeds. Targeted for certification in 2023, the next generation of JetWave will feature multinetwork, multiconstellation capability, as well as speeds up to 100 megabits per second.

¡°JetWave is the gold standard of cabin connectivity in business aviation, and we¡¯re about to raise the bar even higher,¡± said Steve Hadden, vice president, Services & Connectivity, Honeywell Aerospace. ¡°Our next generation of JetWave will unlock a wider Ka frequency and utilize the next generation of very-high throughput satellites. Additionally, new service plans will make this connectivity more affordable than it¡¯s ever been.¡±
JetWave allows passengers to quickly download large files, videoconference with colleagues or livestream a favorite show or sporting event ¨C even on transoceanic flights. The next-generation JetWave offering will expand on those capabilities and initially enter into service with Inmarsat¡¯s global JetConneX Ka-band service. This will enable previously announced JX Evolution plans, which offer increased speeds and capacity. In 2024, the service options enabled by the next-generation JetWave are planned to expand to other Ka-band networks via Honeywell¡¯s satellite network partners. This will bring a new level of flexibility and choice for business aviation operators.

There are more than 3,000 JetWave systems being utilized globally for in-flight connectivity. Commercial incentives for current JetWave customers who wish to upgrade will be offered closer to the product¡¯s availability in 2023.

Under this background, 4th Annual Connected Aircraft China Congress will take place in Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province on November 25th and 26th 2022. Participants of the forum include domestic and foreign aircraft OEMs, airlines, telecom operators, satellite communication and ATG solution providers, system integrators, aircraft retrofitting, aviation digitalization and other industry experts and enterprise representatives will come to the forum to discuss hot topics in the industry, play the advantages of all parties, and jointly contribute to the development of intelligent civil aviation.
