A Boeing Business Jet parked at a Le Bourget FBO this week has recently completed 300 hours of testing of a SwiftBroadband-capable satellite communications system supplied by EMS Satcom.

The company’s eNfusion satcom system has been undergoing testing for several months in anticipation of the commercial start of Inmarsat SwiftBroadband service later this year. Testing of Internet link aboard the corporate BBJ, operated by Fortune 100 company, occurred on flights from the U.S. to Europe and the Caribbean, EMS said.

The eNfusion hardware in the BBJ includes a CNX cabin network router, AMT-50 high-gain antenna and HSD-400 high-speed data terminal. EMS Satcom has been offering demonstrations of SwiftBroadband in the BBJ to potential customers here this week.
