All major avionics suppliers are developing SwiftBroadband avionics Extension to ARINC 741 and 761 systems Smaller lighter ARINC 781 systems A choice of SwiftBroadband equipment All will have Aero safety services Weight/power for a two-channel installation (Including antenna and classic aero services) 110 lbs / 200 watts ARINC 781 single box SB avionics Major Manufacturers include: EMS Honeywell Rockwell Collins Thales Chelton

11 Network Infrastructure - Information Assurance
SwiftBroadband uses enhanced 3G security protocols defined by 3GPP ( SwiftBroadband uses: Kasumi algorithm for ciphering over the satellite link Integrity protection for signaling between the User Terminal and the Radio Access Network (RAN) Private key mutual authentication SIM card/PIN number physical authentication Satellite control protected by NSA Type 1 Caribou encryption Network Firewalls installed in the SAS/border gateways Link encryption may be applied across the DCN End-to-end encryption can be applied at the application layer transparent to the services

12 What Inmarsat brings to UAS/UAVs
Reliable service Real time, toll quality voice for remote pilots Worldwide connectivity Proven, trusted partner for DOD and NATO allies Relevant, flexible form factor for terminals Transition path to higher capacity Meeting requirements for highly reliable backup communications; real time voice communications and where range exceeds existing comms coverage

13 Next Generation MSS: Global Xpress
Inmarsat recently announced plans for fifth generation constellation to augment 4th generation L-band BGAN network I-5 is a strategic move into the Ka-band for next-generation Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) Boeing will build the satellites and partner in commercialization Key features of the new Global Xpress network include: Seamless, global coverage & end-to-end ground network Augments and compliments Inmarsat’s BGAN services System capacity and bandwidth step-changes for end users >25 Gbps = exponential improvement in system capacity ~ 50 Mbps in forward direction and ~5 Mbps in return direction to 60cm antenna Near term launch – CSI Q4 2013; global fleet Q4 2014
