Honeywell (Hall A, Stand 073) has announced that it will offer high-speed, high bandwidth satellite communication for military use.

Its Jetwave satellite communications hardware, together with Inmarsat’s Global Xpress ‘SATCOM as a Service’ inflight broadband, will provide unprecedented global connectivity in the modern battlefield, improving overall situational awareness and safety, while allowing troops to communicate more effectively.

“We envision a battlefield of the future that is not inhibited by spotty, slow and unreliable connectivity. We want to create a landscape of consistent and interconnected communication,” said Carey Smith, president Defense and Space, of Honeywell Aerospace.
