AP Avionx, of San Diego, was awarded purchase orders by Row 44, Inc. for production quantities of the Server Management Unit (SMU) and the Modem Data Unit (MDU) for Row 44’s in-flight satellite-based broadband system. AP Avionx, which was recently acquired by Kontron, said the orders will support widespread deployment of Row 44 services in 2011.

AP Avionx was initially selected by Row 44 in late 2006 to design and manufacture the subsystems. Successful completion of test phases and FAA airworthiness certification in early 2008 led to customer in-flight testing and deployment in 2009/2010.
