Air Satellite Communication - ORBIT CS

Airborne Satellite Communications

Commercial, government, and defense organizations are leveraging advancements in satellite technology to deliver fast and cost-effective broadband communications services to aircraft operating at very high speeds and high altitudes.

These organizations require stabilized satellite communications solutions with the bandwidth, capacity and high performance to deliver voice, video, and high-speed data services to and from flying platforms anywhere around the globe.

Beyond throughput and coverage, these systems must be highly flexible to meet the operational and maintenance requirements of fixed wing or rotary wing aircraft. This calls for compact, lightweight and easy to install systems that are also easy to maintain throughout their lifecycle.
