Phasor, the pioneering developer of aeronautical electronically steered antenna (ESA) systems, will present at the annual Global Connected Aircraft (GCA) Summit in Arlington, Virginia to be held from 7-9 June. The subject of connectivity is critical for airlines and business jet owners as they strive to meet rising connectivity demands of passengers, and the emergence of inflight telematics requirements. The GCA Summit will welcome players from the aviation world, as well as satellite operators, integrators, technology vendors, in-flight entertainment companies and component manufacturers, ready to discuss the latest trends and developments that will enable the mass adoption of broadband connectivity across the commercial aviation sector.
“The rise of mobility devices like smartphones, tablets and laptops, and the advent of new High Throughput Satellite (HTS) systems, have acted as catalysts for the transformation of the satellite communications and mobility markets”, said David Helfgott, CEO, Phasor. “However, the key to unlocking this potential lies in the access technology. We are excited to be given this opportunity to showcase our unique approach”.
Existing wideband aviation antenna solutions are parabolic dish-based, heavy, bulky and non-aero-dynamic. They can also be very maintenance-intensive, prone to failure due to their mechanical steering systems, and difficult and costly to repair.
At the event this week, Phasor will present its enterprise grade, very low profile, conformal, electronically steered antenna (ESA) with characteristics that both meet and exceed the requirements of commercial airlines and business jet operators. This breakthrough technology will transform inflight communications, enabling wider adoption of broadband connectivity to more kinds of aircraft, and offering service providers and airlines the benefits of greater functionality, reliability and scalability.
