Rehovot, Israel, May 22, 2024 – SatixFy Communications Ltd. (“SatixFy”) (NYSE American: SATX), a leader in next-generation satellite communication systems based on in-house-developed chipsets, announced a collaboration and the first order of its in-flight connectivity (IFC) terminals, Onyx, with SCOTTY Group Austria GmbH (“SCOTTY”), a leading manufacturer and integrator of communication solutions, including in-flight connectivity for aircraft.

The Onyx is an all-inclusive, high-performance satellite communications aero terminal designed for use on small to mid-sized aircraft, delivering superior in-flight connectivity. Characterized by its compact form factor, the Onyx features SatixFy’s cutting-edge digital beam-forming technology, along with multi-orbit connectivity capabilities.

SCOTTY placed an initial order for SatixFy’s Onyx terminal and associated product support. SCOTTY will integrate SatixFy’s IFC terminals into its communication solutions for aircraft that previously lacked connectivity due to limitations of terminal sizes, enabling high-end, reliable satellite communication for its customers.

The first system is expected to be installed on a business aircraft in the second half of 2024.

Nir Barkan, Acting Chief Executive Officer of SatixFy, expressed his enthusiasm about the recent collaboration with SCOTTY, stating, “This partnership with SCOTTY and the first order of our Aero terminal is a major milestone for SatixFy. It brings us a step closer to our vision of becoming the leading enabler of reliable satellite-based communications. By combining SCOTTY’s expertise and resources with our market leading satellite communications technology, we are very well positioned to meet the fast-growing market demand for exceptionally reliable, high-speed communication solutions for the aviation sector.”

Joachim Kalcher, Chief Executive Officer of SCOTTY, added that this partnership is a natural fit for a company specialized in critical communication solutions, “With our expertise in secure communication in remote and challenging environments, SCOTTY has found a perfect match in SatixFy. Together, we can provide a comprehensive solution to our customers in the aero market—whether for government, business jets, or commercial airlines. We can also offer our expertise in installing both antennas and indoor equipment for various applications including cabins, cockpits, UAVs, and any other future needs. We are looking forward to a very long and successful partnership with SatixFy and its products.”
