In-Flight Broadband is Breaking the Satcom Antenna Market into Two Pieces, according to Freesky Research


ARLINGTON, Va., October 22, 2007 – The satellite industry is eagerly anticipating the rapid growth of aviation broadband services. But as antenna manufacturers develop new products to meet the requirements of aeronautical data users, the market is quickly splintering into two factions - the chaotic and innovative Ku-band, and the deliberate and reliable L-band, according to a report to be released next week by Freesky Research.

“The Ku-band satcom antenna market continues to push new performance levels, creating sales opportunities for new antenna manufacturers, while the L-band market continues to march along to the slow and steady pace set by Inmarsat,” according to David Gross, author of the report. “L-band will continue to offer better coverage, while Ku-band will support higher downlink rates. However, with the advent of combined frequency antennas, fewer aircraft owners will be forced to choose between the two”.

The report “Aeronautical Satcom Antennas” includes forecasts of broadband antennas on board private jets and commercial airliners, as well as analyses of major suppliers and technologies. It will be available for purchase through the company’s secure shopping site at, and a table of contents will be available at
