Aviation Satellite Antenna Systems: Introduction
Air travel communication solutions, such as voice calls, Internet access, high speed data applications, audio and video conferencing, large file transfers, and VoIP services are facilitated by customizable aviation satellite antenna systems. Aviation satellite antenna systems comprise a Ground Earth Station (GES), a satellite, and an Aircraft Earth Station (AES). The AES portion of an aviation satellite antenna system has a satellite data unit, radio frequency unit, diplexer, high power amplifier, and a high gain antenna. In aviation satellite antenna systems, the high gain antenna functions with the help of its associated beam steering electronics, which accepts the steering commands directly from the satellite data unit. Thus, the need to integrate a separate antenna control unit in the aviation satellite antenna system is eliminated.
Aviation Satellite Antenna Systems: Market Drivers and Opportunity
Aviation satellite antenna systems provide voice and data services in aeronautical satellites, commonly known as SATCOM or satellite communication systems. This is the primary driver of the global aviation satellite antenna systems. These aviation satellite antenna systems offer safe and efficient air travel across the globe. The ever-rising demand for aviation satellite antenna systems from commercial and passenger air travel service providers drives the global aviation satellite antenna systems market. Also, the minimum operational performance standards set by Aeronautical Radio Incorporated (ARINC) and Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) demand the incorporation of efficient aviation satellite antenna systems.
Manufacturers use different design approaches to minimize the installation expenditure of aviation satellite antenna systems. Ideally, in order to minimize installation costs, an aviation satellite antenna system should enroll simplicity. An opportunity to integrate a single antenna-based aviation satellite antenna system featuring flexibility to decide where the related electronic control equipment can be placed would minimize the installation expenditure, while maintaining the overall efficiency of the aviation satellite antenna system.
