Astronautics Corporation of America has launched its Federal Aviation Administration technical standard order-approved AeroSync Mission connectivity system as an aftermarket solution for all Part 27 and 29 helicopters.

AeroSync Mission provides helicopter operators an in-air and on-ground, Wi-Fi and cellular hotspot that supports a variety of use cases, including connecting air ambulance medical crews to hospital trauma teams, enabling mobile offices requiring internet connectivity, and providing in-flight entertainment.

Astronautics also supports AeroSync Mission operators with a subscription-based cellular data plan. The plan offers global connectivity in partnership with internet service providers in dozens of countries around the world, offering operators an easy and cost-effective means to get and stay connected while in the air. AeroSync wireless devices have also achieved regulatory certification for cellular and Wi-Fi operation for the majority of countries in the world.

“Why select Astronautics' AeroSync versus another connectivity solution?” asks Josh Berrian, Astronautics' senior product line manager for connected application solutions. "As a line-fit connectivity provider for major helicopter and fixed-wing original equipment manufacturers, our solution comes with a proven pedigree of deployment on multiple platforms, the highest level cybersecurity protection, proven cellular performance and radio certification regulatory compliance. Additionally, AeroSync Mission production is geared for long-term customer support, and we plan to enable our customers' connectivity needs for decades to come.”

AeroSync Mission's optional features include: video streaming, video storage, aircraft data collection and export, and engine data diagnostic services. Astronautics specialises in customising connectivity solutions to meet customer needs.
