It has a D-Sub-based multi-coax connector, two radiating elements, and matching networks to support 50-ohm cabling. Additional features include support for a range of WIFI bands, suitability for military and government aircraft, and compact form factor.

The second product is the IK-201 Multi-Band LTE Antenna. The wide-band (700 to 5200 MHz) small form factor 2×2 LTE and GNSS antenna device also fits in aircraft cabins and comes with two radiating elements and matching networks 50-ohm cabling support.

The final product is the AP-561 Micro-WAP (Wireless Access Point). This kit allows passengers and onboard aircraft equipment to communicate wirelessly, thanks to its Giga-Bit Ethernet Interface and an 802.11ac WiFi Radio with an integrated antenna. The system can send data using various protocols, providing aircraft operators greater flexibility.

These innovative products represent a leap forward in in-flight connectivity, providing passengers and crew with reliable communication and entertainment options throughout their journey.
