Ka-band VSAT tail-mounted SATCOM antenna for in-flight connectivity introduced by TECOM

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., 12 March 2014. TECOM Industries Inc. in Thousands Oaks, Calif., is introducing the KaStream 5000 satellite communications (SATCOM) antenna for mounting in the tail of aircraft for airborne in-flight connectivity.

The Ka-band VSAT solution offers effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) in a small form factor to enable high data rates off the aircraft; two line replaceable units (LRUs), an antenna control unit (ACU), and 11.5-inch Ka band satellite tracking antenna assembly (STAA); multi-modem capability supporting different satellite and ground systems worldwide; and swappable Ku- or Ka-band antenna platforms.

The product is designed to be form and fit swappable with either Ka-band or Ku-band STAA. TECOM will introduce its new Ku-band VSAT tail mount SATCOM product and swappable STAA later this year.
