Global Eagle, Gilat demo live in-flight broadband via Telesat LEO

Tuesday 23 October 2018 | 15:18 CET | News
Gilat Satellite Networks announced its key role in what it calls the first-ever demonstration of an in-flight aircraft communicating at broadband speeds with a low earth orbit (LEO) satellite system. This industry milestone was achieved using Global Eagle's "Albatross One" test aircraft with Gilat's aero modem and Telesat's Phase 1 LEO satellite, launched earlier in 2018. The testing included a successful demonstration of connectivity and switchover between Telesat's geostationary orbit (GEO) and LEO satellites.
