Rockwell Collins said last month that it has completed the purchase of the SkyLink broadband terminal product line from Arinc for its relaunched eXchange data offering. Collins will sell and support the product line to large business jet operators and OEMs, while Arinc will continue to provide SkyLink Ku-band satellite services. The Cedar Rapids, Iowa avionics maker switched to the SkyLink network after the original eXchange satellite link, Connexion by Boeing, was terminated due to low demand from airlines. SkyLink services are available over North America, the North Atlantic and Europe.
