AIRLINK® Antennas


High speed data & digital voice

Our AIRLINK® airborne antenna system provides in-flight telephone, fax, and data transmission using the INMARSAT system of geostationary satellites. AIRLINK® relays information around the Earth using high-gain antenna systems and flies on nearly every commercial airline in the world.
U.S. Government customers also use our AIRLINK® high-gain aeronautical system for reliable, secure, high-speed data and near-toll quality digitized voice communications. We delivered 13 SwiftBroadBand AIRLINK® SATCOM antenna systems to the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) through a contract with Airbus (formerly AusAero). The system provides a global SATCOM capability to the RAAF fleet of C-130J aircraft.
