Thuraya Takes Off with Inflight Connectivity

Oil & Gas Pipeline Monitoring

Aerial surveillance for pipeline safety and monitoring

A UAV monitoring pipelines in a remote area can transmit imagery back home from well beyond line-of-sight when equipped with Thuraya Aero. Simply connect the Aero system to an onboard camera and an internal processor to stream the imagery to headquarters for analysis; the camera can be remotely controlled and new commands can be transmitted to the navigation system.

The Thuraya Aero service, through its beyond line-of-sight duplex data offering, increases operational efficiency. High-powered cameras, zoom lenses, gas sensors and additional sensing technology collect ground information, which is channeled through the Aero network to our customers for analysis – all in a matter of minutes.

Scientific Projects

Effective communication for airborne science programs

In scientific projects and research work, being able to have an overall overview without disturbing or influencing the fragile fabric of the environment is of critical importance. It can likewise be helpful to see objects from different perspectives.

Thuraya Aero supports airborne missions for observing and mapping the land surface, biosphere, atmosphere and oceans. An onboard IP hub can be used to share satellite bandwidth for the sensor processor and PCs. Research crew can access multiple databases, transmit imagery and climate data over our communication system.

Special Operations

Adaptive aero communications network for off-the-record assignments

A second’s delay in communications could be costly to special operations units engaged in critical assignments for their governments. Thuraya’s highly secure, interoperable aero network opens up secure and uninterrupted voice, data and video connectivity for classified missions requiring secrecy and agility. Aero facilitates live monitoring for situational awareness, co-ordination and reconnaissance, enabling troops to “plan, move and communicate” continuously amongst themselves and with the command center.

Our airborne communication system, through its beyond line-of-sight duplex data offering, boosts mission success and helps save lives. With its built-in video codec, Aero enables transmission of live HD video back to the command center and allows flight personnel to receive last second instructions in real time.

Thuraya also supports quick integration and activation of onboard military communications solutions essential for intra-flight connectivity, critical command and control; management of local area networks, air-to-ground radios, base telephone systems, computer systems, tactical and fixed communications hardware, mobile radios, base pager equipment, postal and Base Information Transfer Systems services.


Accelerating live aerial broadcasts

To be the first to break a critical story, field teams should be able to connect to their newsrooms from practically anywhere, including the sky.

Live aerial transmission of HD video requires a stable, flexible airborne communication platform. Thuraya Aero fits the bill. Powered by L-band satellite technology, it guarantees steady and disruption-free service, unaffected by bad weather or altitude. Thuraya Aero enables broadcasters to aerially capture, optimize and relay footage of places where SNG trucks cannot reach.

The setup is simple: Thuraya's compact onboard satellite data unit SDU is connected to a hub, Wi-Fi transceiver, or directly to an onboard server. The small airborne antenna is fixed either on the top of the fuselage or on the tail. Aircraft, big and small, can enjoy the full benefit of IP connectivity at any altitude, without worrying about cost or bad weather interference.

This is particularly useful during live broadcasts when copious amounts of HD video data from multiple sources have to be compiled and transmitted.

Business Jet

Connected Cabins for Airborne Business Ease

VIPs can furnish their business jet with Aero for a superior office-in-the-sky experience. Aero’s compact hardware, easy installation features, support of multiple peripherals and asymmetric streaming capabilities make it an attractive and affordable option for busy businessmen who require fluid access to work while on the move.

Designed for seamless operation on low- to medium level flights and on both fixed- and rotary wing aircrafts, Aero is ideal for all kinds of business aviation jets and delivers uninterrupted coverage via Thuraya’s extensive L-band satellite network. Executives traveling around the world have secure phone, text, internet, email, VOIP, video conferencing, and video streaming access right from the comfort of their cabins. Their inflight experience is further optimized as they can use their own smartphones or laptops to check in with employees, negotiate business deals with partners or keep in touch with family and friends.

Environmental Protection

Protecting Environmental Resources

The conservation and monitoring of ecological resources are required to maintain healthy global habitats and are essential in protection from natural calamities and ecosystem imbalances. Aero is a superior airborne communication solution that helps safeguard our world from impending, widespread environmental disasters.

Aerial operations equipped with Aero can rely on smooth coverage via satellite connectivity for bi-directional voice and data exchange between multiple contacts across remote regions, over land and sea. Aero enables HD video streaming and supports applications for surveillance using advanced cameras and sensors that can be controlled remotely, allowing live imagery and data to be sent and received from many target points. These applications can aid environmental agencies, engineers and scientists to effectively conduct large-scale missions to monitor weather patterns, air pollution, forest areas and inland resources, species migration, and restoration activities. It can further lend communication ease in the prevention of floods, land erosion, wildfires, and illegal activities like poaching.
