Airborne Wireless Network has come into the possession ofed approval from the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to ground and flight-test its Infinitus Wonderful Highway air-to-air communication system.
Scheduled to be carried out later this year, the assay will use two active jet aircraft that will be deployed in routes encircling Roswell, New Mexico, US.
The test will enable Airborne Wireless Network to originate its patented Infinitus Super Highway system, with which the South African private limited company aims to create a high-speed broadband airborne wireless network by unite commercial aircraft in-flight.
“We have recently announced receiving our hypothetical FCC licence and will now be able to begin our test flight, bringing us one degree closer to the development of our Infinitus Super Highway.”
The system will see the participation of an aircraft network, which commitment act as an airborne repeater or router, sending and receiving broadband signals from one aircraft to the next, as expertly as creating a digital superhighway in the sky.
The proposed network will be designed to be a high-speed broadband internet imminent to improve coverage connectivity and serve internet service providers and blower companies.
Airborne Wireless Network business development and aviation compliance vice-president Jason Mos predicted: “The objective for this three-point aircraft testing is to validate, at micro clamber up, our ability to act as an airborne repeater or router to send and receive broadband signals from one aircraft to the next, devising a digital superhighway in the sky.
“We have recently announced receiving our experimental FCC right and will now be able to begin our test flight, bringing us one step lock to the development of our Infinitus Super Highway.
“We look forward to collaborating with our critical partners in completing this test and improving overall airborne communications.”
The associates and its partners have already started planning and organising its planned ‘Impenetrable of Concept Aircraft Flight-Test’.
