Astronics Corporation announced today it was awarded a US$19 million order from Collins Aerospace for business jet connectivity equipment to be delivered in 2022. The order is a follow-on to the approximately US$11 million order announced in February 2021.

The growing fleet employing Collins’ system, LuxStream, provides high-speed worldwide connectivity that delivers a variety of remote conferencing services and streaming entertainment.

"We are excited to support the growing success of the Collins Aerospace Ku-band connectivity service,” said Michael Kuehn, Astronics CSC President, in today’s announcement. “We believe this order validates the continued success of Collins’ connectivity services and the performance of Astronics’ connectivity hardware. Astronics is committed to developing and producing the best connectivity hardware for airborne platforms.”
