In its 64kbps-per-channel form, Swift 64 provides ample bandwidth for flight planning, weather and chart updates.
Optional bonding of channels yields up to 256kbps and data compression allows for optimisation of channel usage by conveying larger amounts of data in the same timeframe.
Compatible with government-grade encryption and secure standards, including STU-IIIb and STE, Taclane, KIV-7 and Brent.
Delivered within the Inmarsat-3 regional beams.
Swift 64 offers ISDN and packet-data and is readily integrated with ground-based networks.
Standalone or simultaneous operation with Inmarsat Aero H, H+ and SwiftBroadband through the same high-gain antenna.
Cobham Swift 64 systems have been installed on a range of aircraft and helicopter platforms for transmission of video (typically security or economic surveillance).
Cobham offers a range of high-gain antennas to support Swift 64, both electronically (phased array) and mechanically steered, along with either single or dual-channel Swift 64 capability in a 3MCU Arinc600 package.
With one or two Swift 64 units (four Swift 64 channels) combined with a DLNA, HPA and high-gain antenna, this offers the user voice, ISDN and circuit switched data capability in multiples of 64kbps.
