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.

employees supporting the aviation needs of government and business
operators and other service providers. Services include major and
