EMS Technologies will provide its rugged data storage for up to 1,000 aircraft deploying systems by LiveTV LLC. EMS will provide its ToughDisk 3500 SATA Rugged Hard Disk (TD3500 SATA) assemblies that will be integrated into LiveTV’s Content Server and System Controller (CSSC), a television video server, and the Connectivity Aircraft Server (CAS).  The CAS is used with LiveTV’s Kiteline connectivity product, which allows airlines to provide passengers with free in-flight email and messaging. The TD3500 SATA assembly includes a TD3500 SATA hard drive and isolation kit. The isolation kit provides vibration isolation of the hard drive, making for easier installation in the servers. The company has already shipped 100 assemblies to LiveTV and will begin making deliveries under the purchase agreement in May 2009.
