SD begins airborne validation of Plane Simple Ku-band tail mount antenna system

One year after announcing the launch of the Plane Simple Satcom Antenna Systems, Satcom Direct, the aviation solutions provider, has begun rigorous airborne testing of its advanced technology, purpose-built Ku-band tail mounted antenna system.

Inflight trials will also confirm the system’s integration with the SD ecosystem of hardware, software and supporting ground infrastructure. The antenna, which is now equipped on SD’s Gulfstream aircraft, will be stretched to the limits of its capabilities while providing empirical feedback about its functionality in an aerial environment.
