Viasat military-grade airborne SATCOM antenna achieves FAA certification, completes Air Force C-17 MACC testing

2018-07-31
The Viasat Global Mobile Antenna 5560-101 military-grade, Ku-/Ka-band, multi-network, multi-mode satellite communications antenna has demonstrated it can provide in-flight broadband connectivity to enable advanced situational awareness, en-route mission planning, and other applications that demand high forward and return link capacity. FAA DO-160G certification enables the antenna to be installed on select manned and unmanned military aircraft, while passing AFMC C-17 MACC tests demonstrates the antenna's ability to become certified for Air Force and FMS C-17 aircraft.
