FliteStream satcoms certified for Gulfstream GIV-SP
The Gulfstream GIV-SP has become the first aircraft to benefit from Astronics AeroSat's latest satcom connectivity solution, the FliteStream T-310, which delivers internet and IPTV from a single antenna.

Astronics AeroSat Corporation has certified its next generation FliteStream T-310 satcom connectivity solution for business aircraft, with an FAA supplemental type certificate and parts manufacturer approval for installation onto a Gulfstream GIV-SP business aircraft.

The FliteStream T-310 is currently offered in partnership with Satcom Direct (SD) as part of its SD Xperience end-to-end solution. The FliteStream T-310 satcom solution includes the next generation iDirect CX780 modem, providing compatibility with both Ku-band wide beam and HTS spot beam satellite networks.

Matthew Harrah, president of Astronics AeroSat, says: “We are excited to achieve an FAA STC and PMA for the new FliteStream T-310 product line. This new product variant will provide an improved business aviation connectivity experience to passengers, making an 'office-in-the-sky' dream a reality. We look forward to continuing and expanding our relationships with Satcom Direct and Intelsat. We expect the FliteStream T-310 will be an important part of the SD Xperience package now and in the future.”

Astronics AeroSat's FliteStream T-Series includes its patented Rexolite Lens technology, which is said to create the most efficient, reliable and highest performing satcom antenna system available. The FliteStream T-Series provides high speed internet and IPTV in a single antenna.
