High-Bandwidth Aeronautical Telecommunication Options

Autor(en): K.-D. Büchter, A. Sizmann
Zusammenfassung: People expect being able to go online everywhere and at any time, and airlines are addressing the strong demand for mobile connectivity by equipping fleets of airliners with SATCOM antennas, which is currently the only solution for quasi-global broadband internet access. Still, bandwidth is an expensive commodity, limiting passenger acceptance. Therefore, in this paper, complementary options for broadband aeronautical communication are explored, with the prospect of unlocking additional capacities in high-capacity airborne networks. For highest bandwidth transmission through clear atmosphere, laser-links can be used, whereas RF-technologies in the GHz-range are required for adverse weather conditions. For highest availability, microwave frequencies are required, whereas more exotic frequencies in the millimeter-wave regime show potential for long-range stratospheric communication with limited cloud penetration capability.
