Singapore Airlines selects Rockwell Collins satellite communications
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Rockwell Collins has been selected by Singapore Airlines to provide its SAT-2100 satellite communication system with a single HST-2110 high speed data transceiver for 58 Boeing 777 aircraft.
Under the terms of the agreement, Rockwell Collins will replace Singapore Airlines’ existing SATCOM system with its latest high speed data offering.
In addition to the retrofit program, Singapore Airlines is using the same system on forward fit Boeing 777. One of the primary uses of the SAT-2100 is to facilitate high speed data services to Singapore Airlines’ newly installed Electronic Flight Bag System.
“This agreement strengthens our growing relationship with Singapore Airlines, a technology leader in the airline industry,” said Jeff Standerski, vice president and general manager of Air Transport Systems for Rockwell Collins. “The SAT-2100 has achieved broad market adoption since being introduced just two years ago and will play an important role in providing Singapore Airlines with advanced real-time information and connectivity solutions.”
Rockwell Collins’ small, lightweight, reliable and economical SAT-2100 system provides multi-channel voice and data capabilities within a single 8 MCU package. When coupled with an HST 2110 high speed terminal, the SAT-2100 system enables Inmarsat’s Swift64 or SwiftBroadband service for broadband connectivity. The SAT-2100 has been certified on the Boeing 777 and 747-400, and has been selected for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
