Honeywell upgrades connected aircraft offerings
Honeywell has introduced new software updates for its GoDirect™ Cabin Connectivity solution.
The company says that the new enhanced data traffic management tools give crew members better visibility of data usage, and could save operators up to $100,000 a year.
Operators are able manage and control on-board satellite connections and network connections from an online portal or cell phone application.
Honeywell says that the GoDirect Cabin Connectivity suite of services is the first system to be able to offer this on a per device basis.
“Passengers are increasingly demanding that they stay connected throughout their flight, but reliable, premium and affordable service has traditionally been hard to come by,” said John Peterson, senior director, Connectivity Services, Honeywell Aerospace. “We’re focused on helping business jet operators keep their passengers connected while also making it easy and cost effective for them.”
As part of the new offerings, Honeywell has also introduced a consulting service that aims to help customers make educated choices about connectivity. This includes software configuration and gives customers direct access to experienced Honeywell engineers.
