SDR™
More than a router—it’s the connectivity platform for the future

The Satcom Direct Router (SDR) manages all of the mission communication systems onboard your aircraft. The SDR is always working to keep you connected on the ground or in the air, anywhere in the world.


Intelligent traffic control allows simultaneous use of current and future government and commercial satellite services. It automatically selects the best network for your connection and optimizes QoS while reducing bandwidth costs. It compresses and caches data providing maximum bandwidth for the transmission of information. When the aircraft is on the ground, it switches from a satellite network to 3G service so that you’re always connected in the most efficient way. It is certified to rugged avionics standards to withstand harsh military environments.


The SDR enhances our Ku-nnect aero ku-band connection service for a seamless Office in the Sky™ experience. It is also the perfect companion for L-band, Ka-band and X-band communications services from our satellite network providers.


Use your smartphone, your number

The Satcom Direct Router is the gateway to using your own smartphone in-flight, with your own number and caller ID via GlobalVT®. The SDR provides real-time connection and their usage. You can even monitor your flight path duration through its integrated flight tracker.
