Aerkomm Inc. (OTCQX: AKOM) ("Aerkomm") today announced that through its wholly owned subsidiary, Aircom Pacific, Inc. (Aircom Pacific), it has begun developing a new and innovative Ka-band solution for the provision of broadband voice and high-speed internet access for passengers in Airbus ACJ319s, ACJ320s and ACJ321s – as well as Airbus' airline commercial aircraft equivalents.
Called Aerkomm K++, the solution will offer a broadband rate of 20 Megabits/sec experience per passenger. It combines Aircom Pacific equipment – based on a low-profile antenna – with a retrofit installation designed and implemented by Airbus to EASA and FAA certification standards, which will also be validated by China CAAC.
Aerkomm K++ will provide worldwide coverage including, specifically, within China for Chinese registered aircraft.
"Staying connected has become a necessity of private jet passengers and, in our increasingly connected and digital world, it is something which more and more of us need, and to which we all increasingly aspire," said Aircom Pacific's COO Louis Giordimaina.
"Aircom Pacific's new Aerkomm K++ promises a new and more attractive way to meet these needs, by providing broadband access to passengers, backed by Airbus standards and experience," he added.
