EMS Aviation, a division of EMS Technologies of Ottawa, Canada, announced that its new eNfusion AMT-700 high-gain Antenna (HGA) is flying on a Bombardier Global Express and being installed on a Boeing Business Jet. This antenna supports multi-channel Inmarsat SwiftBroadband, classic Aero H/H+ and Swift64 services and is ready for sale and installation.
Satellite communications system supplier Cobham (Hall 2 Stand E83) has secured a contract to supply high-gain antennas for use on single-aisle and long-range Airbus airliners. The antennas first will be fitted to in-production A320-family airplanes pending certification of the configuration. Cobham’s HGA-7001 antenna will be used for long-range communication between pilots and ATC. The antenna supports Inmarsat SwiftBroadband services.
Satellite communications specialist EMS Satcom (Stand No. 113) has introduced its new eNfusion AMT-700 high-gain antenna (HGA). The new tail-mounted antenna promises higher gain than competing antennas of similar size and weight.
The Canadian company designed the antenna with Inmarsat’s new SwiftBroadband high-speed Internet service in mind. EMS’s existing AMT-50 HGA antenna is already flying on more than 1,400 aircraft.
EMS Satcom last month introduced the latest and lightest in its line of eNfusion high-gain antennas for airborne satellite communications, the AMT-700, weighing in at less than five pounds. The antenna features higher gain, lower power consumption and
EMS Satcom on Monday rolled out the latest and lightest in its line of eNfusion high-gain antennas (HGA) for airborne satellite communications, the AMT-700, weighing less than five pounds. The antenna features higher gain (greater than 13.5dB), lower power consumption and a smaller installation footprint than its AMT-50 predecessor.
Chelton Satcom last month announced the signing of supplier contracts to provide high-speed-data equipment as customer options for the Embraer Legacy and Gulfstream G450/550.
Nobody knows for sure who first coined the term “office in the sky,” but whoever it was, he or she must feel a certain level of vindication that this over-promise of a marketing slogan has at last blossomed into something approaching reality.
A compact satellite communications high-gain antenna system developed by CMC Electronics (Booth No. 1014) will be brought to market in the middle of the year. Dubbed SatLite, the latest generation antenna supports Inmarsat Aero-H/H+, Swift64 and SwiftBroadband satellite communications services and has been optimized for use in business jets and regional airliners.

With all the recent talk about airline passengers surfing the Web from the comfort of their seats (and perhaps at some point in the future even being permitted to place cellphone calls in flight), broadband satellite communication services for the aeronautical market appear positioned for significant growth. But there’s another positive side note to the story, and it directly affects many business aircraft operators.
