Riyadh, Saudi Arabia-based consultancy firm MAZ Aviation and satellite airtime provider Satcom1 (Booth 821) are joining forces to design a new, faster satcom system for the Airbus ACJ and Boeing BBJ. According to the partnership agreement, the system will be based on Ka- and Ku- band solutions and will offer greater bandwidth for airborne communications. Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband and its safety services features will be used for cockpit communications needs.
“We will develop a solution that accommodates the future bandwidth expectations,” said Karina Larsen, founder and vice president of partnerships for Satcom1.
“Today, connectivity is an integral part of our clients’ daily activities, and the availability of a reliable fast communication service is taken for granted,” said MAZ Group founder and chairman Mohammed Alzeer. “This partnership with Satcom1 will ensure that we will be able to deliver to our clients leading-edge satellite communications services that are fast, reliable and cost-effective, thus transforming communications in the skies and accommodating heavy data transmission.” MAZ Aviation is located at the GDC Technics booth (603).
