Telesat appears finally ready to deliver its LightSpeed LEO constellation. But is it too little, too late?
Looking to bring one of the most popular sports in the world on board? Airlines now have a second option for delivering extensive Formula 1 content on their inflight entertainment systems, thanks to a distribution agreement with Anuvu.
Satellite failures are rare. But when they happen the impact can be massive. Astranis and Anuvu aim to avoid that, while working to understand problems on Arcturus, the first microGEO satellite to orbit.
No one likes to admit it, but every now and then a deal signed to deliver services for an airline turns sour. But those failures are also typically managed privately, and with minimal sniping between parties. When that veil of propriety is pierced, however, things get interesting in a hurry.
The next generation of Inmarsat satellites will be significantly smaller than today’s GEO hardware. The company announced plans to launch a trio of microGEO satellites, developed by SWISSto12, by 2026 to bolster its L-band network.
Norwegian has renewed and extended its inflight internet partnership with Anuvu. Under the deal the carrier will upgrade currently installed IFC hardware to its Dedicated Space™ technology.
Should the Viasat/Inmarsat merger eventually close, the company may need to send a thank you present to the Starlink team at SpaceX. After four months of additional review, the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) issued a provisional approval to the combination, and the upstart LEO operator is cited as a major factor in the determination.
What does it take to manage communications with some of the smallest GEO satellites in orbit? How about some really, really big parabolic antennas. When Anuvu’s first MicroGEO satellites come online later this year they’ll communicate via new 9 meter gateway antennas, managed by Telesat.
AirAsia selected the AirFi wireless platform to boost inflight retail sales and entertainment options on board. The carrier has long offered a digital on-board experience across parts of its fleet. Plus, a few other airline customers coming online.
Inflight internet provider Anuvu wants to boost Ka-band connectivity. The company’s Dual-Panel Ka-Band Inflight Connectivity Antenna System (DPSAA) solution launches at APEX EXPO this week, offering increased capacity to the aircraft, especially at higher latitudes, thanks to an extra aperture under the radome.
