4G LTE for Leonardo Helicopters

4G-connectivity experience for helicopter passengers

Connectivity is a standard today. Discerning customers expect to stay connected independent from where they are. It must be easy accessible and with the same speed they enjoy in their home or office – even when they are in the air. With the new helicopter cabin 4G LTE connectivity solution from RUAG Aviation, customers benefit from levels of smartphone connectivity to rival those on the ground – at an affordable cost. Instant messaging, video calling, full social media interaction, live streaming and fast Internet searches are all at the fingertips for the duration of a flight.

Working with ground-based 4G LTE networks via a dedicated externally mounted aerial specially design for helicopters; the system interfaces with an on-board router to deliver seamless high-speed WIFI Internet connectivity during overland flights – even in remote and mountainous.

By keeping the technology straightforward and strong, RUAG Aviation has created an innovative solution that meets the most stringent of customer requirements while remaining extremely weight efficient. Traditionally, helicopter cabin interior connectivity has relied on expensive, bulky and cumbersome SATCOM systems. With the new 4G LTE solution from RUAG Aviation, you can experience connectivity with twice the speed and reliability – at a significantly lower operating cost.
