EMS Aviation Introduces Aspire™ Portable AirMail

ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EMS Aviation, a division of mobile connectivity leader EMS Technologies, Inc., today introduced the Aspire Portable AirMail System. The product, the latest addition to the Aspire family of user-friendly communications products, is a device which operators carry on their aircraft with them. It is easily connected to an existing Iridium® antenna for near-instant access to e-mail through personal smartphones.

“This new portable system is designed to take advantage of low-bandwidth devices, such as BlackBerry®s and iPhones®”

Weighing just three pounds, the system is used specifically for sending and receiving text e-mail in-flight, to help operators and passengers fly like they live. The Portable AirMail unit is not permanently installed on the aircraft, but can be carried on as required and connected to the aircraft’s existing Iridium antenna. Once the system is connected, up to four passengers can send and receive e-mail. And because permanent installation is not required, an operator can effortlessly carry the device from airplane to airplane, retaining connectivity on each flight, providing the pilot-in-command approves its use.

“This new portable system is designed to take advantage of low-bandwidth devices, such as BlackBerry®s and iPhones®,” says John Jarrell, vice president and general manager of EMS Aviation. “With an Iridium antenna, any operator can begin using the system immediately, and in today’s connected world, Portable AirMail offers a cost-effective in-flight e-mail only solution. Its portability makes it ideal for Iridium antenna-equipped fixed-wing or helicopter operators who want to experience in-flight e-mail without having to modify their aircraft.”

The system will be available in the second quarter this year.
