EMS Aviation, a division of EMS Technologies of Ottawa, Canada, announced that its new eNfusion AMT-700 high-gain Antenna (HGA) is flying on a Bombardier Global Express and being installed on a Boeing Business Jet. This antenna supports multi-channel Inmarsat SwiftBroadband, classic Aero H/H+ and Swift64 services and is ready for sale and installation.

The AMT-700 HGA provides greater than 13.5 dB gain over its coverage region, more than any other antenna of this swept volume, according to EMS. “This tail-mounted antenna provides unsurpassed gain compared to competing antennas for Inmarsat-based systems,” said John Broughton, EMS Aviation vice president of product development. “It offers superior performance and improved delivery of Inmarsat services in a smaller, lighter form factor.”

Weighing just over four pounds, the antenna is the lightest of EMS Aviation’s Inmarsat-based line of antennas. It is on display at the EMS Aviation booth (No. 6829). The mechanically steered AMT-700 HGA is consistent with the Arinc 781 specification and optimized for installation on mid-size business jets such as the upcoming Embraer 450/500 or the Bombardier Challenger 300. It is also suitable for co-location with a Ku-band antenna on long-range business jets such as the GIV, on which there are plans to install it later this year. As a two-LRU solution, the HGA also provides installation flexibility.
