Gogo says it will bring its next generation ATG-4 air-to-ground connectivity technology to the business aviation market.

ATG-4 will be available for business aircraft via a new equipment package called ATG 8000. First shipments are expected in April 2015.

Particularly well-suited for large business aircraft in corporate shuttle configurations, Gogo says ATG 8000 will help passengers realise a significant increase in connectivity speed and capacity when compared with the company’s other Gogo Biz equipment packages – ATG 2000, ATG 4000 and ATG 5000.

Gogo’s ATG-4 is currently flying on more than 650 commercial aircraft.

ATG-4 technology employs three innovations: directional antennas on the aircraft, dual modems on the aircraft and EV-DO (Rev. B) technology on Gogo’s airborne and ground networks.

“ATG-4 has been very well received in the commercial aviation market and we’re pleased to make the same robust technology available to business aircraft,” said John Wade, Gogo Business Aviation’s executive vice president and general manager.

“We expect it to provide an excellent in-flight connectivity.”
