FlightStream SA. Satcom system compression and control

Aircraft Satcom Filtering, Firewall and Network Security - AirSatOne

Global firewall and compression management for SwiftBroadband.

Flightstream™ SA offers a full set of web filtering, compression, management, and consumption tracking features.

To reduce data usage and free up bandwidth, aircraft operators can choose different levels of compression, block high content web sites, limit downloaded file sizes and block automatic updates. Changes can be made through our customer portal at any time to a single aircraft, the entire fleet or a group of aircraft in the fleet - anywhere in the world. Flightstream™ SA does not require hardware or software to be installed on the aircraft or personal devices and allows flight departments to keep their highly mobile networks under control.

Charter operators can bill back data usage using our online portal where the aircraft operator can view individual trips, aircraft or fleet data consumption. Our Data Manage Live application can provide passengers with a pop-up display on their personal devices showing real-time data usage and cost to avoid billing surprises.

Flightstream™ SA is deployed globally - an important feature for aircraft operating around the world. Being deployed globally is important for efficient data handling to reduce time, distance travelled and to reduce latency and hops. Milliseconds add up for each data packet sent and received, a shorter distance means less hops and faster data. Our backbone and its efficiency matter to the passengers on your aircraft.
