Airborne Connectivity System

The Airborne Connectivity System (ACS) provides the ability to exchange data between ground and aircraft in flight via LTE (4G) network with up to 4 simultaneous data connections. With its encryption software, the ACS encompasses a high level of cyber security and can be used for video and audio streaming. The ACS can serve as stand-alone airborne Wireless Access Point (WAP) or as LTE gateway.


Secure Zones
The ACS Ethernet ports support each, public, private and secure zones to provide a high level of cyber security.
