Rockwell Collins has been appointed a value added reseller (VAR) for Inmarsat’s Global Xpress (GX) inflight connectivity solution for government aviation customers.

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

David Poltorak, Vice President, Business and Government Aviation Services for Rockwell Collins, said: “Government aircraft have specific requirements when it comes to high speed connectivity.

“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.”

Andy Start, President, Inmarsat Global Government, added: “Rockwell Collins understands the complexity of — and has decades of experience working with — government customers.

“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.”
