This aerodynamically streamlined casing is for the Ku-Band antenna that can be chosen for factory installation during airplane assembly.
We increasingly live in a constantly connected world where people and business have come to expect and depend on easy access to high-bandwidth anywhere. More and more this expectation includes the in-flight airplane environment. We all want to stay in touch with friends, family, business associates, entertainment, and commerce while in flight.
Our airline customers are seeking to achieve new operational efficiencies from the integration provided by high-bandwidth connectivity between their ground and air operations. The Boeing 737 MAX is on the forefront of these technologies, with its ARINC 791 compatible provisions, installation, and activation for the Ku-band high bandwidth antenna.
