Panasonic Avionics (Panasonic) announced that Satcom Direct (SD) will be the first business aviation value added reseller (VAR) for Panasonic’s business aviation connectivity service. Panasonic’s open architecture network means they can scale their worldwide satellite network to meet growing bandwidth needs of this key market.

The company is already deploying high throughput satellite (HTS) service and is also designing extreme throughput satellite (XTS) capacity to ensure the best possible experience for this market. Leveraging Panasonic’s network, SD will be able to offer business aviation customers services such as VoIP calling with improved call quality, geofencing services with boundary notifications and alerts, and SD’s popular GlobalVT which allows customers to make calls and send text messages using their personal device, from any altitude. Business aviation customers will also have access to SD’s operations system, SD Pro.
