Eclipse & EAD Aerospace deploy Inmarsat GX on Another Head of State aircraft

Airbus A319CJ equipped with a bespoke Wi-Fi communications solution including Satcom and network hardware and software, and airtime

Eclipse and EAD Aerospace have forged a partnership with AFI KLM E&M, a leading European MRO, to equip a Presidential A319CJ with an innovative Wi-Fi system.

This solution includes Honeywell JetWave ka SATCOM, cabin network hardware and software, airtime, and STCs with their associated Modkits.

This installation uses EAD’s Satcom Universal Mounting System (SUMS) Modkit, an antenna mounting system already deployed on A319/320/321, A330, A340, B777 and B747 aircraft.

The system enables key communications and entertainment capabilities including Voice over IP telephony, and streaming on-demand IPTV. In addition to the hardware, Eclipse is providing its Aero+ software suite which allows the customer to manage and monitor the onboard Inmarsat Ka GX network. Operators can configure aircraft communications zones, users and applications, and allocate, prioritize and optimize bandwidth. Additionally, the Aero+ suite offers a passenger credit card payment system, monitoring and security tools, SwiftBroadBand fallback functionality, and features a customizable management interface.

As one of the leading distributors of Inmarsat airtime services, Eclipse and EAD Aerospace are proud to have been instrumental in enabling the first customers to use the Inmarsat GX Aviation network and the next generation of inflight connectivity.
