This paper describes the steering and mount systems of Airborne Satellite Antenna (ASA) as a most important and sensitive part of both Aeronautical Mobile Satellite Communication (AMSA) and Aeronautical Mobile Satellite Broadcasting (AMSB) systems. In general, most of ASA solutions are small and easy to install onboard aircraft such as Low Gain Antenna (LGA). However, in particular, some of ASA systems are quite complex, relatively large and heavy, especially airborne High Gain Antenna (HGA) for Aircraft Earth Stations (AES), such as Inmarsat-H, High Speed Data (HSD), Swift64, SwiftBroadband and Digital Video Broadcasting-Return Channel via Satellite (DVB-RCS) antennas, so they need sophisticated steering and mounting systems. Over the past decade are developed the steering ASA broadband system, which main components are reduced considerably in both physical size and weight. These reductions are presented in this research that brings greater Effective Isotropic Radiated Power (EIRP) from satellite transponders coupled with GaAs-FET technology at the front end the satellite receiver. In this paper are also introduced existing types of mechanical, electrical, combined and other mount systems of ASA steering system. The ASA has to be always pointed towards the satellite in spite of aircraft motions. At this point, the mount airborne satellite system as one of the main requirements in designing the mobile satellite antenna systems from the technical and rational viewpoints is discussed.
