Mobile Satellite Communications

Latitude is pleased to be working with Inmarsat developing high bandwidth applications and solutions for aircraft owners and fleet operators who require Internet-in-the-sky functionality, both for flight deck communications and flight data reporting and for robust business communications for passengers and payload connected to workplaces, colleagues, and families on the ground.

Inmarsat has been at the forefront of mobile satellite services for over thirty years. Inmarsat owns and operates eleven satellites in geo-stationary orbit 35,000 km above the Earth, controlled from Inmarsat’s UK headquarters via ground stations located around the globe. With deployment of the Inmarsat-5 Global Xpress network, Inmarsat will be able to offer customers mobile broadband speeds of 50Mbps to terminals as small as 60cm, and speeds of up to 10Mbps to terminals as small as 20cm.

SwiftBroadband – Flexible IP Connectivity Available Today

Inmarsat SwiftBroadband is designed to meet the demand for bandwidth across all areas of aviation. It delivers high-quality voice and data communications through a single antenna to the whole aircraft, servicing cockpit, cabin, and operational applications. Inmarsat SwiftBroadband 200 offers the same high-quality service to small to medium-sized aircraft, through a cost-effective, lighter, and smaller antenna. SwiftBroadband allows simultaneous users concurrent access to demanding applications. Data rates can be increased further by using compression and multiple data channels. SwiftBroadband supports a choice of contended services and data-streaming IP services as well as circuit-switched applications for backward compatibility.
