Singapore Technologies Engineering (ST Engineering) and modem and antenna company SatixFy have established a new joint venture targeting the high growth in-flight connectivity market.
The new subsidiary, Jet-Talk, is based in the UK. It has been established with a share capital of just over $20 million.
JetTalk will develop a cutting-edge satellite antenna system for the delivery of enhanced in-flight connectivity for the commercial aviation sector.
The new system will use digital beamforming technology based on SatixFy UK’s chip technology to enable simultaneous communications with multiple satellites at higher performance as well as lower power and cost as existing solutions.
This is expected to allow airline operators to deliver improved in-flight connectivity and reduce capital expenditure.
