Honeywell said Tuesday its MCS-7120 Satellite Communications System received European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) approval for the Dassault Falcon 7X. The announcement was made at this week's EBACE conference in Geneva, Switzerland. The MCS-7120 system provides cockpit and cabin connectivity via the Inmarsat SwiftBroadband or classic satellite network.

“Honeywell’s satellite communications technology integrates seamlessly with the Primus Epic-based avionics to provide the security and capability today’s businesses need to stay productive while in the air,” said Brian Sill, vice president of Business & General Aviation Aftermarket, Honeywell Aerospace. “Operators can add their satellite communications to the Honeywell Avionics Protection Program on the aircraft, providing a simple, one-stop service for extended warranty coverage.”

The Honeywell MCS-7120 Swift Broadband System combines a standalone satellite terminal (model HD-710) with a Cabin Communications Gateway System that includes an IP-PBX, network router and wireless access point (models CG-710 and CR-710). The MCS-7120 system provides integrated voice and high-speed data communications for cabin and cockpit applications over a wide range of services.
