Cobham to provide Airbus production line with satellite antennas

Cobham has received an initial contract from Airbus to supply high gain satellite antennas (HGA) for use on single aisle and long range passenger jets. The antenna will be fitted to A320 family aircraft currently in production pending certification.  

The HGA-7001 will be used to enable long range communications with ATC on the flight deck. This antenna is able to support the latest Inmarsat services for cabin applications including internet, VPN, email and telephone. The high gain antenna complies with the top tier Inmarsat SwiftBroadband (SBB) inter-modulation suppression specification.  

Allan Cook, Cobham Chief Executive, said: "The selection of our high gain satellite antennas by Airbus, following a rigorous evaluation and selection process, is a further endorsement of our leading edge technology. It is the smallest in its class, reducing drag and fuel consumption and consolidates our position as the market leader for SATCOM antennas."
