Bombardier has selected the eNfusion AMT-3800 high-gain satcom antenna from Canada’s EMS Satcom as a factory option on the Global Express XRS and Global 5000. Installed atop the fuselage, the low-profile antenna provides access to Inmarsat’s Swift64 and SwiftBroadband high-speed data services in addition to worldwide voice calling.

The high-gain AMT-3800 antenna joins EMS Satcom’s AMT-50 tail-mount antenna, an option on Bombardier business jets since 1996. Designed to bring Internet connectivity and voice calling capability to smaller aircraft, the AMT-3800 antenna is a good fit for larger business jets in the category of the Global Express XRS, according to senior vice president and general manager Neil Mackay. He said passengers are becoming more interested in high-speed Internet access, particularly on long-range airplanes where they want–and often need–to be productive and connected in flight.
