Looking to combine the best-in-class antenna performance with an electronically steered solution for multi-constellation support? ThinKom may soon have a new “Plus” option available. During SatShow 2023 in Washington, DC this week the company teased out two new offerings, the ThinAir Ku2525 Plus and the Ka2517 Plus. Each takes the rotating platter hardware ThinKom is known for and adds an additional ESA panel in the mix.
If you are a Ku-band GEO user and you want to add either either a OneWeb or a Starlink capability, then our approach is to host a very small Starlink and or OneWeb-approved ESA.– Bill Milroy, Chairman & CTO, ThinKom

When can we expect more details on the ThinAir Plus program from ThinKom? Milroy says they’re “encouraging our partners to give permission to talk more explicitly before AIX [in June] and hopefully that will happen. If it were up to us, we would be talking about it more now.”
