Meet the Future of IFEC

Get ready for unprecedented connection reliability from Astronics.

The new E-Series Electronically Steered Array satcom antenna will deliver ultra-reliable Ku- and Ku-HTS connectivity today and tomorrow from GEO, MEO, and LEO networks.


Reliability - Redefined

Realize reliable, seamless connectivity with the E-Series’ dual-beam capability, made possible from a single patent-pending phased array that supports the “make before break” requirement of future networks.

e-series-open

Solid-state technology improves cost and maintenance reliability for airlines, business aviation, military systems, and satellite network operators.

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, order yours with conformal mounting for an embedded array flush with your fuselage for zero drag.

e-series-profile  

Simultaneous transmit and receive from a single antenna array eliminates the need for bulky extra panels that drive up costly size and weight.

Unmatched Global Coverage

The E-Series' Ku-band GEO, MEO, and LEO satellite coverage means you operate seamlessly, globally, without settling for less. Our complete connectivity coverage translates to your satisfied passengers and crew.

Flexibility for Any Aircraft

From commercial transport to business jets to military aircraft, the E-Series is available in multiple sizes and configurations:

E-1000

Serves existing GEO constellations and is ready for LEO and MEO satellites for twin- and single-aisle commercial aircraft. 78” x 61” x 3.5”


E-600

A mid-size solution measuring 78” x 47” x 3.5”, intended to serve the same networks but targeted for single-aisle and business aviation aircraft



E-200

A small-size version, for LEO-only satellite networks. Ideal for turboprops up through twin-aisle commercial aircraft based on connectivity needs.


Custom Configuration – Work with us to create a configuration based on your application and customer requirements, including a conformal “flush” mounting integrated into the fuselage.
