Comant Showcases The 2680 Series
Radios are obviously key for flight
but they don't do a world of good if their antenna are subpar.
Perhaps this is why the folks at Comat are so excited about their
latest line of antenna. The company, part of the Chelton Group,
showcased its ComDat 2680 Series, which made is new for 2004. Comat
officials tell ANN this heavy duty, multi-system antenna is ideal
for high performance turbine and larger twin engine aircraft.
ComDat stands for Communications/Data, and represents a new
series of antennas made exclusively by Comant. These antennas
acquire data for some of the newest aviation systems being offered,
such as Orbcomm, Iridium, WSI, XM Satellite Radio, as well as GPS
and VHF. Company reps pointed out that ComDat antennas combine many
of these new antenna requirements into one, reducing the number of
antennas an aircraft requires in order to utilize services such as
Orbcomm or GPS.
Comant has worked
closely with Avidyne in the development of these models, which only
have two connectors. Comant also developed a wide-band VHF antenna
that operates over the VHF/Orbcomm frequencies and Avidyne
developed a specialized switch that allows VHF communications when
required, and Orbcomm transmit/receive when activated.
Comant has also developed a 40dB amplifier that will work with
Chelton Flight Systems, Trimble, and FreeFlight units. It’s
available as a stand-alone 405 Series or in combination with VHF
and/or Orbcomm. The company also developed a 17dB amplifier for
Garmin, and a FIS antenna for Honeywell’s KDR510.
