Astronics AeroSat releases aircraft connectivity solution

Astronics AeroSat, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Astronics Corporation (NASDAQ:ATRO), has launched its latest aircraft antenna system, the FliteStream F-310, the company said.

Designed to provide the high performance needed for new spot beam satellite technology, the FliteStream F-310 delivers the highest bandwidth and fastest in-flight internet connectivity speeds in its class.

The new FliteStream F-310 provides Ku-band HTS connectivity with new technology that minimizes service interruptions when switching from spot beam to spot beam in flight. Designed to replace the current FliteStream F-210 product, the F-310 uses existing mounting provisions to eliminate any impact to aircraft installation designs and provides an easy path for OEMs to upgrade to the latest Ku-Band HTS networks.

Key features of the new FliteStream F-310 solution include seamless connectivity, Ku-band SATCOM antenna system, small size and light weight, and a three-piece LRU system.
