Dassault Selects Honeywell’s JetWave High-Speed Connectivity Option for Falcon Fleet
Geneva, Switzerland
5/21/2017
Dassault Aviation has selected Honeywell’s JetWave Ka-band system as a high speed in-flight connectivity option for new Falcon Jet aircraft. Initial installations are already underway with first delivery to start in the summer. 

The option will allow JetWave Ka-band antennas to be installed on all in-production Falcon models, including the new Falcon 8X ultra-long range trijet, the Falcon 7X, 900LX and the Falcon 5X ultra widebody twin. JetWave will also be available as a retrofit on in-service Falcons and as an upgrade option on aircraft that are already equipped with other SATCOM solutions.

“Staying at the cutting edge of technology by offering seamless, consistent global connectivity is of primary importance to our customers,” said Eric Trappier, Chairman & CEO of Dassault Aviation. “Honeywell’s JetWave is the perfect tool to meet this requirement.”

The system includes a control unit, modem and router and a tail-mounted radome antenna that can connect business aircraft to Jet ConneX, the high speed connectivity service based on the Inmarsat Global Xpress Ka-band satellite network which offers data rates up to 15 Mbps. Global Xpress enables passengers to browse the internet, stream videos or videoconference anywhere in the world, over land or over water, as if they were in their office or at home.

Operators can sign up for Jet ConneX through their preferred service provider.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
