First SwiftBroadband Installation On Type
Duncan Aviation recently completed installation of the EMS
eNfusion HSD-400 SatCom in a Bombardier Challenger 601-3R. This
installation provides one of the first Challenger 601s to be
upgraded with true Inmarsat SwiftBroadband capability. The
installation allows passengers to use their personal Wi-Fi devices,
including notebook computers, BlackBerry devices, iPhones and other
popular data communication tools, in the cabin during flight.
This system utilizes Inmarsat's new SwiftBroadband system,
providing two separate channels for a high-speed airborne internet
connection. The installation included the EMS CNX-200 accelerator,
new EMS AMT-50 high gain antenna and EMS high-performance,
tail-mounted radome. As installed, passengers will experience data
transfer rates up to five times faster than most other systems,
giving them DSL-like speeds.
Duncan Aviation is an aircraft service provider, with 2,000
employees supporting the aviation needs of government and business
operators and other service providers. Services include major and
minor airframe inspections and maintenance, engine services, major
retrofits for cabin and cockpit systems in addition to full paint
and interior services and aircraft sales and acquisitions.
Complete service facilities are located in Lincoln, NE and
Battle Creek, MI.
