Certification for satcom and radome systems from Astronics AeroSat

The FAA has certified Astronics AeroSat’s FliteStream F-310 satcom solution and ARINC 791-style AeroShield radome and adapter plate system.

“We are excited to announce the completion of our FAA STC covering the AeroShield low-drag radome and FliteStream F-Series systems on Boeing 737-800/900/900ER aircraft,” said Matt Harrah, president of Astronics AeroSat. “This initial certification enables Astronics to offer our global customer base a total wireless connectivity hardware solution that includes installation plus all structural, antenna and radome system components.”

“This FAA STC, along with the in-process European EASA STC and Chinese CAAC VSTC validations plus the near-term A320-family STC, will provide global opportunities for airline operators and passengers to experience the benefits of our FliteStream and AeroShield connectivity solutions,” said Harrah.

FliteStream F-310 works with Ku-band high throughput satellites, and is designed to optimize internet and data speeds with a single antenna. It can maintain low-angle satellite coverage while flying at higher latitudes. The three-piece LRU system includes the antenna, antenna controller and modem, plus a high-power transceiver. It is compliant with RTCA DO-160 and RTCA DO-178.

The AeroShield radome and adapter plate solution is a next-generation ARINC 791-style solution designed to offer optimal Ku-band performance combined with a low drag design. It also meets FAA and EASA requirements for bird strike safety.
