When it comes to installation, Intelsat can handle as much or as little of the process as you prefer. Our dedicated technical crews can manage your airline’s equipment and system installations, minimizing aircraft downtime across your fleet. Additionally, our linefit programs with Boeing and Airbus are moving forward, which means future new aircraft can be equipped with our technology upon delivery.

Technical Services

We can help you certify our system hardware from telecommunications agencies in countries where an airline’s aircraft are registered or based to ensure ability to ensure RF regulatory compliance. With regulatory approvals for more than 200 countries and more Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) than any other connectivity provider, we can help you obtain, license for re-use, or amend a Supplemental Type Certificate for Intelsat Inflight Systems usage.

We can support your installation several ways with tools, training, onsite install, and engineering services. We provide multiple tools that streamline installation such as the ability to provision, receive and update to the latest approved software and understand trend data for your connectivity enabled fleet. We can also help train and certify your airline or third-party installers on system installation. For complex installs, prototypes and custom IFEC integrations, we can also provide on-site assistance.

Intelsat can provide maintenance tools for you to sustain your equipped fleet – including our 2ku diagnostic tool and file sharing portal. We can also train/certify your airline technical operations and third-party partners on Onboard System maintenance and provide a diagnostic tooling kit. Our Aircraft Maintenance Control Center (AMCC) aids with troubleshooting, diagnostic support, and maintenance upkeep.
