EMS Reveals New High-Gain Broadband Antenna
[Satellite Today 10-06-08] EMS Satcom unveiled a new high-gain antenna, the AMT-700, EMS announced Oct. 6.
The AMT-700 is designed to maximize data throughput and system capacity of its Inmarsat SwiftBroadband connectivity. The tail-mounted antenna aims to provide higher gain than competing antennas of similar size and weight. The antenna is based on the EMS AMT-50 HGA, currently flying on more than 1,400 aircraft.
“This new antenna incorporates several new technological advances initially brought to market in our AMT-3800 phased-array product. By maximizing data throughput and system capacity, these advances are designed to get the most out of Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband service,” SES Vice President of Product Development John Broughton said in a statement.
EMS plans to release the antenna commercially in May.
