Posted 28 February 2015 · Add Comment

Yahsat, the UAE-based multipurpose satellite provider, has successfully completed the factory acceptance test for a state-of-the-art airborne satellite communications system developed for its homeland security client, Advanced Integrated Systems (AIS).


The new system includes Ka-band phased-array airborne SATCOM antennae and a secure indoor communications suite.
AIS has granted approval of the system following a rigorous review process of the capabilities and reliability. This approval paves the way for Yahsat to fully equip AIS with the latest generation of low-profile airborne phased-array antennae, and the shipping of hardware to AIS’s system integration test facility is now underway. Aircraft fitted with the systems will now have the capability to communicate at a high data rate to support secure video, voice and data connectivity via the latest in satellite technology within the Yahsat satellite coverage footprint.
Abdulla Al Beloushi, CEO of AIS said: “The new phased-array antennae from Yahsat have met every requirement of the review and exceeded our expectations in a number of key areas. The new units provide superior aerodynamics, producing less drag on our aircraft, while also delivering superior communications capabilities.”
Ali Al Hashemi, General Manager of YahService, said: “At Yahsat, we strive to equip our customers with end-to-end satellite solutions that deliver the very latest in connectivity. The completion of the test with AIS exemplifies our commitment to bringing cutting-edge tools to our clients and constantly improving the speed and performance of our services.”
