Ka-band option for faster Dassault jet connections


May 21, 2017 – Honeywell’s high-speed Ka-band wi-fi system is now an option for new Dassault Falcon business jets, as well as retrofit. The company’s JetWave antennas and hardware enable Inmarsat’s high-speed Jet ConneX service, which is fast enough to facilitate video streaming, music and movie downloads, and access to private company networks.

JetWave is available as an option for installation aboard new Falcon 900LX, Falcon 7X, Falcon 8X and Falcon 5X business jets with initial deliveries in mid-2017. For existing Dassault customers, the JetWave hardware is available for installation on the Falcon 7X and Falcon 900 Series aircraft.

“We believe that the future of business aviation lies in global connectivity. Demand from our customers and operators for reliable, high-speed, global wi-fi is growing exponentially,” said Olivier Villa, executive vice president, civil aircraft, Dassault Aviation.
