Orbit Communication Systems has successfully demonstrated the Orbit AirTRx30 business aviation terminal over Viasat’s advanced Global Xpress satellites. A series of recent tests have validated the next generation system’s remarkable ability to provide reliable and consistent high-speed connectivity, which highlights its ability to deliver a transformative onboard experience in the business aviation sector.


The AirTRx30 distinguishes itself with a compact design of two-line replaceable units, boasting a 12-inch antenna that weighs less than 22 pounds, and features the lowest power consumption in its class. Its parabolic shape design ensures optimal performance without compromise across all elevation angels down to the horizon as well as dual polarization capability to support the next generation of Viasat's GX satellites. The AirTRx-30's MODMAN provides full installation flexibility as it supports both pressurized and unpressurized vessels, making it the ideal solution for business aviation, where space and efficiency are vital.
