Unique dual phased-array antenna
2Ku's aperture size is unparalleled in the IFC market. With 4x the surface area of conventional aero antennas, 2Ku delivers superior performance and double the spectral efficiency, delivering more bandwidth for less cost. When next-generation satellites come online, 2Ku's dual antenna – coupled with our next-generation modem – has the capacity to deliver peak speeds of 200+ Mbps to the aircraft.
Low profile radome
With its low profile radome, 2Ku offers 50% less equivalent weight penalty than conventional aero antennas, reducing drag and fuel burn, and generating significant savings for your airline.
With an open architecture that leverages current and future Ku satellites, including HTS and LEO satellites, Gogo 2Ku offers redundant and reliable coverage around the globe.

Bring 2Ku onboard
Here's what your aircraft need to bring 2Ku onboard:
Comprised of the hardware on the aircraft, the in-cabin network delivers connectivity to Wi-Fi enabled devices onboard.
The 2Ku antenna, which consists of two large aperture phased-array antennas, transmits data to and from the aircraft.
The MODMAN is the device used to host the next-generation modem, which converts the satellite data stream.
The KRFU converts frequencies from the modem to prepare for transmission to the satellite.
The KANDU provides power to the satellite antenna and uses aircraft navigational data to control its movement.
