After Company founder and President Ron Chapman broke industry ground in 1983 by inventing a new security technology system for aircraft, he had a vision. He would provide aircraft communications not only for security purposes, but also for passengers. In 1986 the ASI Group was established and so began the journey to give people connectivity in the sky. 

The ASI Group has a 30 year-old history of flying new communication technologies worldwide. As a Group, we have pioneered the development of the world's first aircraft security system to incorporate a Windows PC on a B737; the world's first certified Cabin Crew Satellite Data Link for Qantas; the global Interflora 'Flowers from the Sky' program, using the cabin terminal to deliver a value-added service; a digital destination advertising system on Air Europa and Hawaiian Airlines; a new generation aircraft electronic logbook application for Airone Italy; and the world's first Bluetooth access point to deliver inflight communications, a platform that now supports our unique business jet and airline programs. And this only scratches the surface of our lifetime of achievements. 

Our highly talented and experienced team are forward thinkers - creating solutions to problems now and in the future. We then bring to life these inventions. We revolutionise. And we get results.
