ViaSat Receives $12 Million Order From ARINC

"The small, lightweight, and extremely cost-effective avionics developed by ViaSat have been key to the success of SKYLink," said Robert B. Thompson, senior director, ARINC Business Aviation Systems. "We continue to see a very high level of customer satisfaction and an increasing demand for the product."
"Our in-flight broadband technology continues to advance rapidly," said Bill Sullivan, ViaSat managing director for Mobile Broadband Systems.
Earlier this month ARINC announced that SKYLink has been selected by Dassault Falcon Jet as the factory broadband communications option for the new Falcon 7X ultra-long-range corporate aircraft. The Falcon 7X is due for certification in 2007 and Dassault Falcon has already received more than 90 orders for delivery between 2007 and 2010.
ViaSat has locations in Carlsbad, CA, and Duluth, GA, along with its Comsat Laboratories division in Germantown, MD. Additional field offices are located in Boston, MA, Washington DC, Australia, China, India, Italy, and Spain.
