Managed Capacity for Aviation

For airline service providers serving North and South American airlines, the fully integrated JUPITER™ System mobility solution delivers the capacity density necessary to keep airplanes full of passengers connected with high speeds and reliable service from gate to gate. The aero connectivity solution combines Hughes JUPITER Ka-band High-Throughput Satellite (HTS) capacity with JUPITER System gateways and terminals as well as network management and operational support.

JUPITER System for Aeronautical Applications Anywhere in the World

In service across hundreds of commercial aircraft, the JUPITER System for aeronautical service enables high performing and efficient in-flight connectivity to support passenger, crew and equipment connectivity. Using Ka- and Ku-band satellite capacity, the JUPITER System delivers reliable in-flight connections with throughputs of up to 600 Mbps with our dual-modem Modman. This dual-band system enables operators to make use of the best available satellite capacity over each flight route—including Ku- and Ka-band fabrics worldwide. The system provides enough bandwidth to deliver connectivity to a commercial airplane full of bandwidth-hungry passengers.

Connectivity without the Gaps:
In-flight Roaming

Operational around the world, the JUPITER System supports roaming across JUPITER-driven implementations. Due to the vast reach of the system, any airline service provider operating a JUPITER System can provide gate-to-gate uninterrupted service for flights traveling from one part of the world to another. As the aircraft flies, the onboard JUPITER Modman automatically switches between beams and satellites. Multiple JUPITER systems deployed around the world have the capability of seamless roaming across airline service provider networks, subject to agreements among operators.
