Esterline CMC Electronics establishes program with Boeing for its enhanced SwiftBroadband antenna system on the B777

Esterline CMC Electronics (CMC) and Boeing have signed an agreement for CMC's multi-channel SwiftBroadband compliant CMA-2102SB Satellite Communications (Satcom) high gain antenna system to be available from the Boeing factory on the B777. The new-generation CMA-2102SB antenna supports Inmarsat Aero-H+, Swift64 and SwiftBroadband satellite communications services. The design of this top-mounted, low-profile antenna with exceptional bandwidth is based on CMC's field proven, proprietary technology and architecture used in its current industry leading CMA-2102 high gain antenna system.

CMC Electronics' CMA-2102SB high gain antenna system has received Inmarsat multi-channel SwiftBroadband approval and Transport Canada Appliance Type Approval. The CMA-2102SB is the only top-mount ARINC 741 antenna to have received such approval.

Bruce Bailey, CMC Electronics' Vice President, Commercial Aviation, noted: "We are delighted that we have established a program with Boeing for the B777 with our high-speed data compatible CMA-2102SB antenna."

The antenna's design enables seamless coverage, independent of aircraft direction over more than 90% of the specified Inmarsat hemisphere. CMC's technological evolution increases by an order of magnitude the communications capacity for air transport aircraft carrying a large number of passengers so they can stay connected.

CMC Electronics is the preferred supplier of Satcom antennas to the air transport and VIP business liner markets. The company has captured more than 75% of all Aero-H/H+ airline installations with its Satcom antennas. To date, CMC has delivered over 2,600 Inmarsat Satcom antenna systems to approximately 110 airline, OEM, military, corporate and VIP customers.
