FCC Grants Airborne Wireless Experimental License
Friday, May 05, 2017 | Comments

Airborne Wireless Network was granted an experimental operating certificate by the FCC. The FCC's approval will allow the company to ground test and flight test its demonstration system, in the development of the Infinitus Super Highway, the company's patented air-to-air communications system.

The FCC's approval allows Airborne Wireless to conduct testing on the ground and over its intended flight test operating area near Roswell, New Mexico. As part of the tests, the company will use two Boeing testbed aircraft and pass broadband data between each aircraft inflight and a ground station through an air-to-air and air-to-ground meshed network link.

“We believe our technology has the potential to become an important opportunity for improving and creating a global pipeline that takes connectivity beyond current limitations,” said Jason T. de Mos, vice president of business development and aviation compliance. "We are very much looking forward to the test demonstration and bringing this new, highly innovative communications network system to market."
