In preparation for the launch of Inmarsat SwiftBroadband data service early next year, Rockwell Collins has introduced two new data-ready satcom terminals, the HST-2110 and HST-2120. According to the manufacturer, the HST-2110 will support one channel of SwiftBroadband and the HST-2120 will support two. SwiftBroadband will provide Internet access in flight at data rates of 432 kilobytes per second per satcom channel. The data terminals are companion products to Collins’s SAT-6100 and SAT-906 satcom systems.
