AIRLINK® SATCOM Antennas

Commercial and Government customers use our AIRLINK® aeronautical system antennas for reliable, secure, high-speed data and voice communications. Our AIRLINK antenna systems cover L-, X-, Ku- and Ka-Band spectrums.  The L-Band and X-Band systems provide in-flight connectivity, using a range of geostationary satellites.

Our new AIRLINK® Ku-100 and Ka-100 solutions bring the power of planar phased arrays to today’s SATCOM challenges. The planar phased array designs deliver low profile, high bandwidth capability to mobile platforms communicating with High Throughput Satellites (HTS) in Geosynchronous Equatorial Orbit (GEO). The terminals advanced electronic beam steering eliminates mechanical moving parts, enabling the next generation Low Earth Orbit/Medium Earth Orbit (LEO/MEO) constellations.

Stealth Antennas

For Communications and Navigation

When space and weight are at a premium and you need survivability combined with great RF performance, the answer is our fifth- generation low observable antenna. Integrated multifunction apertures and low radar cross section features are efficient and affordable while solving installation problems. Currently, we’re building the communications and navigation antenna suite for the F-35/Lightning II.

For next generation aircraft and weapons, we’re working on emerging system technology that’s more efficient, reduces size, and withstands higher temperatures.

Tactical Antennas

Ruggedized for Extreme Environments

Our tactical UHF SATCOM antenna systems and other advanced technologies support Satellite Communications (SATCOM) On-the-Move. These antennas are used as universal replacement antennas for air, sea and ground mobile communication when Line of Sight exchanges are impossible. Each of our UHF antennas is designed to perform in extreme environments and combine high efficiency with broad pattern coverage in a low-profile package.
