Over-Sat announced today the successful installation of inflight WIFI connectivity on Boeing 777 of an International airline. The solution, approved by EASA, is operating and provides on-board WIFI internet connection.
Over-Sat led the project as the prime contractor, responsible for all the aspects including the design, development, delivery of hardware and software, installation, testing, documentation and providing all the required regulatory approvals. EASA (the European Aviation Safety Agency) approved the installation and granted the STC (Supplement Type Certificate) and permit to fly documents.
“Leveraging extensive experience in Satellite Communications, Over-Sat is providing Mobile Broadband Communication solutions for the Airborne, Maritime and Defense markets,” said Lior Weinstein, co-Founder and CEO. “The inflight WIFI project was a complicated one that required an upgrade of the existing Satellite Communication system to support Broadband connectivity, in addition to the new Network Server, WIFI Access point, Control unit and Software. The project required lots of coordination, ground and flight testing, a huge amount of documentation and approvals, in accordance with the latest Aviation standards and regulation”.
Leveraging decades of experience, Over-Sat’s team provides turn-key solutions in the area of complex broadband communications and system integration. We take responsibility from the early design stages, through all the project stages, including the delivery, installation, commissioning, maintenance and support.
Servicing the Maritime, Governmental and Energy markets, Over-Sat solutions include complete Broadband Communications Networks (Satcom, LTE, Wireline etc.) and Command & Control connecting mobile and fixed sites at Sea, on Land and in the Air.
