Aero I from Stratos

Aero I is designed to meet the needs of short to medium-haul aircraft operators, and used for communications in narrow-bodied commercial, business and government aircraft.

With simultaneous, two-way digital voice and fax, specific capabilities include digital voice at 4.8 kbps, fax at 2.4 kbps, real-time data at 2.4 kbps and cockpit data at up to 1.2 kbps.

Aero I uses relatively smaller, less-expensive satellite communications equipment and antennas. Aero I voice, fax and data services operate in the Inmarsat spot beams, while packet data transmissions use global beams.

Aero I is compliant with International Civil Aviation Organization/Standards and Recommended Practices (ICAO/SARPS).
