RUAG Aviation, Satcom1 and EMTEQ jointly offer increased bandwidth and connectivity aboard the Dassault Falcon 7X

Emmen, Switzerland, 20 May 2014. RUAG Aviation, Satcom1 and EMTEQ are together providing a fully EASA-approved add-on solution for existing connectivity installations on all Dassault Falcon 7X aircraft.

Based on Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband High Gain Antenna service, this effective solution is capable of streaming data services of up to 432 kbps. The system secures innovative and flexible WiFi management through Router by eConnectTM, wirelessly streams media to monitors or personal devices using Wireless IFE by eConnect™, and ensures a comfortable cabin environment with Cabin Control by eConnect™. Complementing this, Satcom1’s AvioIP software suite and state-of-the-art airtime and technical solution delivers high-level expertise and 24/7 support.

This new upgrade provides full office functionality in the sky. Passengers can utilise the satcom system at its full capacity to receive and send data at enhanced speeds, thanks to the installation of Satcom1’s AvioIP software suite on EMTEQ’s Router by eConnectTM, which delivers features such as data acceleration & compression. Other features include Audio Video on Demand (AVOD), Virtual Private Network (VPN), user profile management, and the seamless in-flight use of personal electronic devices including iPads and smartphones.

With its proven reliability, RUAG Aviation will install all necessary hardware for this upgrade, as well as issue the necessary approvals during the aircraft’s next downtime.

“This is a cutting-edge solution that exactly fulfils the requirements of our customers. Our joint satcom system enhances customers’ in-flight experience and work efficiency with minimal capital investment and installation downtime,” says Michael Sattler, Senior Vice President Business Aviation at RUAG Aviation. “Customers benefit from advanced in-flight connectivity and AVOD on their Dassault Falcon 7X that are maintained by RUAG Aviation in Switzerland.”
