Greenwich AeroGroup will be also be demonstrating AirSatOne’s FlightStream AOC compression, acceleration and shared caching product with the LiveAero system.
The LiveAero system is powered by the Iridium OpenPort AeroSM broadband service, leveraging Iridium’s worldwide network of 66 orbiting satellites to allow users to stay connected via Wi-Fi to their Smartphone, tablet or laptop from takeoff to landing and pole-to-pole anywhere in the world. LiveAero provides optimized speeds of up to 300kbps and features three independent phone lines, enabling simultaneous voice and data connectivity. This unique satellite configuration and antenna design allows the signal to be received under the rotor of the helicopter, thus allowing signal connection throughout the rotorcraft flight.
“We are excited to partner with LiveTV Satellite Communications to bring this system to the rotorcraft and fixed wing marketplace,” said Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Greenwich AeroGroup Daniel Lafrance. “There is no other product in the industry like this one that allows you to operate your personal device from takeoff to landing anywhere in the world.”
Greenwich AeroGroup completed its first Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) on a Bombardier Challenger 601-3A/3R, 604 and 605 models in December 2012.
