The ViaSat Connected Aircraft Platform integrates your fleet with your IT infrastructure

The ViaSat Connected Aircraft Software Platform enables the connected aircraft. The Platform hosts onboard applications for cockpit and cabin.

It provides a comprehensive set of APIs to facilitate:

  • Data transfer on/off the aircraft.
  • Data channel management, routing data via satcom, 4G and physical media.
  • Application deployment across the fleet.
  • ARINC 717 and 429 databus access.
  • Integration adaptors for popular airline systems.
  • The Platform also allows mobile apps to exchange data securely. This is available for both iOS and Windows tablet devices. The Platform runs on all popular aircraft servers.

Our Connected Aircraft Platform helps airlines to develop and deploy mobile apps for passengers and crew in weeks instead of years. It allows the airline to quickly deliver service differentiation, operational efficiencies, better use of data, and new ancillary revenue opportunities.

The Unconnected Aircraft

Disparate systems use different ways to transfer data on and off the aircraft. These systems don’t communicate with each other and opportunities for data-driven decisions are lost. Data should travel fast, but the old ways of getting data on and off the aircraft just don’t make business sense any more. Problem solved by Arconics.
