Our History

The Carlisle Interconnect Technologies story goes back to 1940, when Henry Dudley Minich organized what was then known as Tensolite. At first Carlisle Interconnect Technologies consisted of a research laboratory employing 6 people in an old converted house at 7 Hudson Street in North Tarrytown, New York. While in the Hudson Street location, investigations into the properties and commercial possibilities of various plastics and synthetic fibers were carried out.

SATCOM Frequencies 101

Demands for increased satellite connectivity on aircraft continue to grow, with more and more passengers looking to surf the web, check email and watch their favorite show at 30,000 feet. Over the next few years we will see rapid growth in the way that content is distributed to an aircraft – and how passengers connect with the ground. 

ADS-B 101

The Federal Aviation Administration mandates that all aircraft be equipped with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) by the year 2020. But what is ADS-B? Simply put, it is a surveillance technology in which an aircraft determines its position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it, enabling the aircraft to be continuously tracked by air traffic control ground stations. ADS-B works where other radars won't - in remote areas or mountainous terrain. It can also be used to monitor traffic on airport taxiways and runways.
