Starling Communications’ MiniMiJet Ku-band low-profile top- mounted satcom antenna on display at Booth No. 1279 uses a patent-pending coherent multi-panel antenna geometry to achieve the gain of a larger conventional shape with a small (16-inch) footprint. The steerable stabilized array has a nominal transmission rate of up to 384 kbps and reception between 3 and 5 mbps.

Starling’s MiniMiJet requires only one cable connection into the aircraft, with all electronics and RF housed inside the antenna itself. The Israeli company plans to make it available for business jets from small to the largest in next year’s third quarter.
