The connected aircraft is changing how airlines operate.
The industry is continuously deploying intelligent aircraft that generate
significantly more performance data. As this volume of data increases, it’s
necessary to seamlessly unite the flow of data between the aircraft, the airline
and ground applications.
GlobalConnectSM, Collins connected aircraft solution, simplifies this
transition. A set of managed services unlocks the value of the connected aircraft
using a full range of nose to tail solutions. It offers an easy to use, turnkey
platform for ground tools, value-added applications and messaging/media
GlobalConnect is the only offering that can handle multiple datalinks
including legacy SATCOM, as well as new Internet Protocol links such as
broadband satellite, Wi-Fi and cellular. With new connectivity options comes the
ability to provide a more robust pilot experience, including in-flight access to
real-time data from the ground. GlobalConnect also streamlines operations by
automating the acquisition of safety and performance data from the aircraft.
