STAY CONNECTED TO THE CLOUD
Continued from page 53

Of	course,	there	are	more	types	of	equipment	to	
consider	when	creating	a	good	"infotainment	system"	
than	off-aircraft	connectivity.	There	are	a	lot	of	options	for	
on-aircraft	communications	and	entertainment	today.	How	
about	in-cabin	Wi-Fi?	And	what	about	getting	power	to	all	
these	devices?	
There	is	an	evolving	list	of	players	developing	
products	for	large	and	small	turbine	and	piston	aircraft.	
From	streaming	to	plugging	in	your	own,	these	sampling	of	
products	highlight	what's	available	in	the	piston	and	light	
turbine	infotainment	market.	But	by	no	means	is	this	all	of	the	
available	equipment.
Gogo Business Aviation's ATG 2000
Gogo	Business	Aviation's	ATG	2000	unit	is	designed	
to	effectively	and	affordably	provide	Internet	and	voice	
connectivity	using	the	ground-based	cellular	telephone	
network.	"The	ATG	2000	is	essentially	a	new-generation	
product	that	offers	all	the	major	benefits	of	upper-end	systems	
at	a	much	lower	cost,"	Wade	said.	"When	connected	to	the	
Gogo	Biz	in-flight	Internet	service,	it	delivers	seamless	
coverage	across	the	continental	U.S.	and	portions	of	Alaska	
and	Canada."
According	to	Wade,	in	most	areas,	the	ATG	2000	would	
deliver	the	upper-end	of	3G	speeds	for	Internet	connectivity.	
"It	gives	you	a	very	satisfying	mobile	experience,"	he	said.	
"We've	also	structured	our	plans	to	make	connectivity	more	
affordable	for	these	smaller	aircraft,"	Wade	added.	"With	our	
pay-as-you	go	plan,	if	you	don't	use	the	data	option,	you	won't	
be	charged	for	it.	Voice	plans	start	at	under	$90	per	month."
Wade	explained	that	the	ATG	2000	system	includes	two	
small	LRU	units	and	a	pair	of	smaller,	6-inch	antennas	that	
mount	on	the	underside	of	the	aircraft.	"We	have	increased	the	
number	of	our	available	STCs	now,	which	makes	it	easier	and	
more	affordable	to	install	on	a	growing	number	of	aircraft,"	
he	said.	"Many	of	the	installations	can	now	be	done	as	field	
approvals.	The	barriers	to	getting	these	systems	installed	
continue	to	come	down."

The	AeroWave	100	has	been	created	to	be	one	of	the	
lowest-cost	satellite	systems	available	for	smaller	cabin	
aircraft.

"The	target	market	is	cabin-class	Cessnas	through	the	light	
jets	like	the	Citation	V,"	Zanino	explained.	"Because	this	
whole	market	is	based	on	price-point,	we've	brought	the	price	
down	to	basically	$20,000	for	our	equipment,	plus	installation,	
which	varies	by	the	aircraft	type."
BendixKing	also	recently	announced	a	special	pricing	
promotion	that	gets	AeroWave	owners	a	block	of	3,000	
minutes	(50	hours)	of	connection	time	for	a	flat	$1,999.	
"Delivering	real,	usable	Internet	connectivity	for	less	than	
$40	per	hour	completely	changes	the	market,"	Zanino	said.	
"Our	customers	asked	for	simplicity	and	affordability,	and	
we	delivered."
Zanino	also	noted	that	at	this	special	price	point,	the	data	
speeds	are	limited	to	104	kilobits	per	second.
"The	AeroWave	100	uses	the	Inmarsat	satellite	network,	
which	enables	coverage	throughout	three	primary	areas:	
North	and	South	America,	and	the	European	and	Asia/Pacific	
regions,"	Zanino	added.	"In	ideal	situations,	it	will	deliver	
speeds	up	to	200	Kbps.	But	for	the	most	part,	it's	closer	to	
150,	which	is	the	upper	end	of	3G	speeds."
Along	with	a	lower	price,	the	AeroWave	100	hardware	
is	smaller.	"It's	basically	one	LRU	box,	and	we've	built	the	
power	amplifier	into	the	antenna,	which	itself	is	just	slightly	
bigger	than	a	GPS	antenna,"	Zanino	said.	"The	LRU	has	a	
standard	RJ45	plug	the	owner	can	use	to	hook	up	a	standard	
Wi-Fi	router	or	walk-on	router	depending	on	how	the	owner	
wants	to	do	it."
Zanino	said	owners	can	use	an	FAA-certified	router,	or	if	
it's	a	private	Part	91	aircraft,	they	can	go	to	an	electronics	store	
and	by	a	COTS	router	and	use	it.

Flight Display Systems'
JetStreamer and JetJukebox
Flight	Display	Systems'	JetStreamer	and	JetJukebox	media	
streaming	devices	are	designed	for	owner/operators	who	want	
cabin-wide	entertainment	and	file-sharing	capabilities,	but	
don't	need	the	off-aircraft	connectivity	capabilities.
