Comlux puts Sidewinder connectivity on ACJ TwoTwenty
Sidewinder will be adapted to the ACJ TwoTwenty by unlocking access to multiple service providers, offering global coverage and services via multiple, redundant networks in LEO, MEO or GEO orbit.

Comlux is to integrate Stellar Blu's broadband, multi-network satcom connectivity platform, Sidewinder, into an ACJ TwoTwenty. Comlux'is the exclusive partner of Airbus on the ACJ TwoTwenty programme.

The integration of Sidewinder is set to redefine in-flight connectivity, offering passengers a unique blend of speed, resiliency and coverage while making them feel more at home during their flights. Leveraging Stellar Blu's technical expertise, Sidewinder will be adapted to the ACJ TwoTwenty by unlocking access to multiple service providers, offering global coverage and services via multiple, redundant networks in LEO, MEO or GEO orbit. Utilising this 'network of networks' approach, Sidewinder provides a resilient connection, supporting full HD streaming, video conferencing and collaborative computing via the resilient, broadband connection.

Integration will start immediately, with the aim of installing and certifying the system on an aircraft before the end of 2024.

Arnaud Martin, CEO of Comlux 2Twenty, says: "In addition to the already extraordinary cabin experience, this system will further position the ACJ TwoTwenty at the forefront of new technology. Our partnership with Stellar Blu will transform the way our passengers communicate and stay connected during their flights, enhancing their overall in-flight experience."

Tracy Trent, CEO of Stellar Blu, comments: "Cooperation with Comlux, a luxury brand and best in class completions provider, is a perfect fit for Stellar Blu. Together we represent innovation, cutting-edge technology and a customer-centric approach."
