Satellite technology developer SatixFy Communications will provide its Onyx in-flight connectivity (IFC) terminals to communication solutions integrator SCOTTY Group Austria GmbH under the terms of a new partnership agreement announced Wednesday.

SatixFy’s Onyx is an all-in-one, compact satellite communications aero terminal designed for use on small to mid-sized aircraft. The Onyx features SatixFy’s digital beam-forming technology, along with multi-orbit connectivity capabilities.

SCOTTY said the deal will enable them to equip aircraft that previously lacked connectivity due to limitations of terminal sizes, enabling high-end, reliable satellite communication for its customers. The company expects to install the first Onyx system on a business aircraft in the second half of 2024.

“SCOTTY has found a perfect match in SatixFy,” SCOTTY CEO Joachim Kalcher said in the announcement. “Together, we can provide a comprehensive solution to our customers in the aero market—whether for government, business jets, or commercial airlines. We can also offer our expertise in installing both antennas and indoor equipment for various applications including cabins, cockpits, UAVs, and any other future needs. We are looking forward to a very long and successful partnership with SatixFy and its products.”
