Aerospace technologies company, Astronics Corporation, has announced that it has joined the Seamless Air Alliance as an ‘Adopter Member’. The Seamless Air Alliance is a consortium of companies that is focused on the development and promotion of aircraft connectivity standards with the aim of optimizing the user experience for passengers and creating standards that ensure continuous connectivity from gate-to-gate anywhere in the world. A further aim is to reduce the hurdles associated with the acquisition, installation and operation of inflight connectivity systems.
“With next-generation satellite technologies coming on board, it is important to look across network technologies to optimize the on-board connectivity architecture for providing the most appropriate system configurations for airlines’ business models, said Matt Harrah, president of Astronics AeroSat, a division of Astronics Corporation. “Astronics looks forward to collaborating with the other Seamless Air Alliance members to develop new connectivity standards that will improve the passenger experience.”
