Meet the Future of IFEC Installation

A universal chassis reference platform built to integrate any Electronically Steered Array (ESA) satcom antenna

The new E-Series universal chassis has been designed to be adaptable to any manufactured ESA flat panel technology. The E-Series works in either Ka-band or Ku-band for GEO, MEO, and LEO network use.


A Universal Chassis Designed for You

The E-Series universal chassis core technology from Astronics solves the operational issues associated with ESA antenna technology including thermal management, lightning, bird strike, and environmental conditions.

A single fully sealed assembly provides ease of installation and maintenance across an extremely low profile design that is ARINC-792 compliant.

Low to No Profile

Forget the 8” radomes of the past and embrace the future of 3.5” or less. External mounts provide a maximum height of 3.5,” reducing drag and fuel burn. Or, design yours with conformal mounting for an embedded array flush with your fuselage for zero drag.

Flexibility for Any Aircraft

From commercial transport to business jets to military aircraft, the E-Series custom reference platform is designed to be scalable for multiple sizes and configurations. Work with us to create a configuration based on your application and customer requirements, including a conformal “flush” mounting integrated into the fuselage.

Custom Configuration

Our reference platform is scalable from widebody, twin-aisle aircraft looking for antenna solutions compatible with GEO, MEO, and LEO satellites to smaller antenna appertures focused on LEO constellations only.

F-Series

Global connectivity for optimum productivity and entertainment.

Astronics is the smart choice for aircraft InFlight Connectivity (IFC) solutions.  Astronics satellite communications (SATCOM) solutions are the only products available with patented "Rexolite® Lens" technology! This enables Astronics to create the most efficient, reliable, and highest performing SATCOM systems available. As an added benefit, Astronics products also works with any Ku-band satellite service provider of your choice for maximum flexibility.


Dependable. Scalable. Supportable.

The F-Series is ideal for large commercial air transport, VVIP,  head of state, & special mission aircraft.

Whether flying for business, leisure, or on a mission, passengers want to be online, connected, and/or entertained – just as they are in the office or at home. The F-Series provides the highest performing broadband data/Internet inflight connectivity solution that is faster and more reliable than ever before.

With Astronics SATCOM solutions, you will enjoy wireless broadband data connectivity, streaming video, Voice over IP (VoIP), and video conferencing staying connected, productive, and entertained.

F-310 Broadband Data System

The Astronics F-310 system sets the standard for next generation Ku-band broadband data/internet systems, with the most efficient Ku-band aircraft antenna available. The F-310 utilizes next-gen Ku-Band High Throughput Satellite (HTS) technology and continues to operate over existing Ku-band wide-beam satellites.

The F-310 provides passengers and crew highest bandwidth speeds in its class. No matter where you fly - over land or water in any region of the world - you can browse the Internet, send and receive emails and texts in real-time, use Voice-Over-IP (VoIP) telephony, access your VPN, conduct video conferencing, and watch IP (IPTV) television.

The easy-to-install system comes complete with antenna, antenna control & HTS MODEM unit (ACMU), high power transceiver (HPT), and radome.
