C-Com and ViaSat to Jointly Develop New Ka-band Antenna System
[Via Satellite 05-27-2014] C-Com Satellite Systems has signed an agreement with ViaSat to develop a low profile, Ka-band mobile antenna system for the emerging communications-on-the-move market. C-Com will manufacture and sell this new product under the ViaSat license.
“We want to bring affordable high speed broadband connectivity over satellite to our land-based customers, much the same way commercial airlines are rolling it out for inflight broadband connection,” said Bilal Awada, CTO at C-Com.
The first pre-production in-motion antenna system units are expected to release in the fall of 2015.
