Los Angeles-based Teledyne Controls announced an agreement with satcom antenna maker EMS Technologies to design and integrate a high-speed data terminal for use with Teledyne’s MagnaStar telephone system. Under terms of the deal, EMS Technologies will supply MagnaStar customers with an aeronautical data pipeline designed to interface with Inmarsat Swift64 service. The result will be a system that provides 64 kbps of data for Internet surfing and e-mail, which could be used just about anywhere in the world. EMS Technologies also offers its terminal, called the ADT-1000, to owners of Aero-H satcom systems.
