Eclipse and EAD Aerospace, an Eclipse company, had a very busy, productive and fun three days in Hamburg, the busiest year ever for our team at this event !
The Eclipse/EAD Aerospace stand was in the IFEC Zone at Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX), which is focused on the passenger entertainment and connectivity experience. We had many fruitful dialogues with airline and business aviation industry players concerning how to benefit from onboard broadband connectivity, which is today a must-have for passengers today. Of primary interest from the EAD Aerospace team was the complexities of aircraft modification and the Eclipse team addressed the end user experience on the aircraft.
Aircraft Modification : EAD Aerospace highlighted the Satcom Universal Mounting Solution (SUMS), an STC and modkits specifically designed for the Honeywell JetWave fuselage mounted antenna which has already received multiple EASA STCs : A319, A320, A321, A330, A340, B777… and even more to come !
Passenger Experience : Aero+ Flexibility, a modular software exclusively developed by Eclipse, also received a lot of interest due to the ability to dynamically manage bandwidth for Ka/Ka-band satcom systems, process credit card payments for internet usage, ensure the security of the connection and optimize the IP bandwidth. Of particular interest during the dialogues was the ability to customize this tool to meet the functional and aesthetic requirements of each customer.
We are very grateful to our partners, customers, new prospects and visitors who joined us in Hamburg : we look forward to moving forward all of the productive dialogues that took place !
If you want to see us at EBACE 2018, stay connected : we will publish all the details related to our presence very soon.
