Honeywell has completed initial flight and ground testing of its AIS-2000 multi-regional airborne satellite television system in the Middle East. During testing in a Gulfstream IV-SP, signal performance and video quality were recorded to verify coverage areas. Honeywell assessed system performance by monitoring non-subscription channels available on the Nilesat and Arabsat DBS satellites, according to the company.
Honeywell’s multi-regional satellite television systems offer passengers television content throughout North America, Europe and the Middle East. The modular cabinet-style design of the system allows buyers to add regions to the system easily, said the company. Honeywell offers service to support the AIS-2000, providing subscriptions, account management, billing and service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
