Honeywell has completed initial flight and ground testing of its AIS-2000 multi-regional airborne satellite television system in the Middle East.

Honeywell assessed system performance by monitoring many non-subscription channels available on the Nilesat and Arabsat DBS satellites within the region. During testing, signal performance and video quality were recorded to verify coverage areas while gathering up-to-date channel information. Testing was completed using its Gulfstream IV-SP aircraft.


Additional regions throughout the world will be added to the Honeywell system capability as additional ground and flight testing takes place in the future.

The Honeywell system offers passengers and crew real-time television content throughout North America, Europe and the Middle East.
