SwiftJet uses Honeywell-built hardware that can be installed on a wide range of crewed and unmanned aircraft and is designed to deliver worldwide coverage to government users with maximum speeds of up to 2.6 Megabits per second.
“Inmarsat Government continues to provide services that are relevant to government customers and are designed for every aspect of government and military on-the-move missions,” said Susan Miller, CEO of Inmarsat Government.
Miller added that with the launch of SwiftJet, Inmarsat is broadening its narrowband capabilities to deliver faster L-band offerings to customers wherever and whenever they operate.
The addition of two Inmarsat 6 satellites to the ELERA network is expected to provide support to the SwiftJet service through the 2030s. These two satellites are set to enter service in 2023.
