In 2007 ASIP Tech, Inc., licensed ASIQ Pty. Ltd. to commercialise a new inflight connectivity concept (originally known as Safecell), to establish an alternative course of connectivity in the global aerospace industry. Several years of R&D and flight testing led to the creation of BizjetMobile for corporate jets, and fflya for airlines. The core technology uses Bluetooth to connect multiple clients in a closed-network to facilitate data optimization and cost control.
The first BizjetMobile product was launched in 2014, and by the end of 2015 over forty installations had been completed globally. ASIQ had successfully delivered to AS-IP Tech, Inc. a full commercialised global program. By the start of 2016 the core technology had been flight-proven and was ready for the first iteration of an airline platform.
ASIP is driving this development of an exciting new inflight connectivity solution that will revolutionize how connectivity leads to revenue in the airline world.
