[Avionics Today 05-19-2015] Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation has selected ViaSat as the sole source Ku-band equipment supplier to outfit Gulfstream’s large cabin business jets with ViaSat Yonder high-speed Internet service. The ViaSat equipment is available on Gulfstream’s existing large cabin aircraft (G450, G550, G650) and new aircraft (G500, G600) either as a factory option, or as an aftermarket installation.

ViaSat will now directly provide the ViaSat Mobile Terminal 1500, which includes a Ku-band antenna, modem and antenna control unit, to enable the Yonder service on an extended line of Gulfstream large cabin jets. The new agreement builds on a previous third-party relationship, where ViaSat has provided global Ku-band In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) hardware to Gulfstream.
