ANNAPOLIS, Md. (May 22, 2017) - Rockwell Collins will now bring high speed, secure worldwide KA-band connectivity to government aviation customers by expanding its Value Added Reseller (VAR) arrangement for Inmarsat’s Global Xpress (GX) service.

Rockwell Collins has already been providing GX and JX services to commercial and business aviation customers through previous VAR agreements.

“Government aircraft have specific requirements when it comes to high speed connectivity,” said David Poltorak, vice president, Business and Government Aviation Services for Rockwell Collins. “They need global access and proven reliability—and secure communications are critical. Combining GX with our current service offerings provides government customers with a portfolio of connectivity options and value added services that enable a full range of applications for command and control, flight deck and mission support services.”

“Rockwell Collins understands the complexity of—and has decades of experience working with—government customers,” said Andy Start, president, Inmarsat Global Government. “This experience makes Rockwell Collins an excellent partner for this revolutionary service. Working together, this service will enable us to meet the rapidly growing demand for high throughput connectivity for the mission-critical operations that government aviation customers require. Rockwell Collins is a key stakeholder in bringing the full portfolio of Inmarsat government aviation services to this critical market.”
