As a pioneer in the field of satellite communications systems dating back over 35 years and over 10 years of history providing aeronautical broadband solutions for commercial, government and private aircraft, Hughes brings extensive experience in the field of satellite-based aeronautical broadband solutions. Hughes’ first generation aeronautical broadband system is deployed on over 750 commercial aircraft operating around the world with airlines such as Southwest Airlines, Norwegian Air Shuttle, IcelandAir, and flydubai.

Hughes’ latest generation aeronautical solution is based on its award-winning JUPITER System. Designed to extract maximum capacity and efficiency from High-Throughput Satellites (HTS), such as Echostar® XIX, the JUPITER System is comprised of a highly advanced, high-performance and spectrally efficient aeronautical terminal, a robust and dense gateway architecture, designed for “lights-out” operation, and an advanced central network management system. As the cornerstone for HughesNet® broadband satellite Internet service (with over more than 1 million active users in North America), JUPITER is the system of choice by HTS operators across the globe.
