ComDat Antenna Makes AEA Debut

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.
