KA-Band Antenna Serves E-4B Aircraft

By  | March 13, 2018 | Filed under: Float Switch, Level Sensors, Wireless Sensors

ThinKom Solutions has delivered its next-generation Ka-band aeronautical satellite antenna systems for the U.S. government’s E-4B National Airborne Operations Center aircraft. The company was competitively selected to supply its ThinAir Falcon-Ka2517 fuselage-mounted phased-array antenna systems for installation on the E-4B platforms under a modernization program to replace the aging less-efficient Ku-band ESA systems. Reportedly, the new satcom system will enable more reliable and more cost-efficient higher-bandwidth voice, data and video connectivity in a highly-survivable low-profile subsystem that can exploit both military and commercial satellite assets. Installations are now underway and the upgrades are expected to become operational by the third quarter of this year.

 

The ThinAir Ka-band fully integrated satcom suite provides high throughput and transponder bandwidth efficiency. It supports data rates up to 400 Mb/s forward link and 100 Mb/s return link. The phased-array antenna apertures are packaged in the industry’s lowest-profile radome, eliminating aerodynamic drag in flight. Additionally, the ThinAir Falcon-Ka2517 has achieved FAA RTCA/DO-160 qualifications, and ARSTRAT/WGS/DISA certifications for the E-4B platform are expected in Q3.
