IN THE RACE TO PRODUCE LOW-DRAG
IN THE RACE TO PRODUCE LOW-DRAG, high-gain fuselage-mounted satcom antennas, Tecom Industries of Thousand Oaks, Calif., has an 18-lb. unit that's only 1.6 in. high, 12 in. wide and 28 in. long. The beam-steering unit is housed within the HGA-9000 antenna and delivers higher data-rate and lower angle coverage than existing Aero-H antennas, according to Tecom. The high-gain phased-array antenna is compatible with Inmarsat's Aero-H/H+ and Swift 64 services that provide cockpit and passenger voice, passenger fax, news and weather broadcasts and PC data.
