Airborne Wireless Network (OTC QB: ABWN) has announced that Marius de Mos, the company´s Vice President of Technical Affairs and Development, as inventor, has filed with the USTPO on July 25, 2017, a new non-provisional patent application, number 15/658,761, the company said.
The patent describes a “method of synchronizing laser-links between aircraft.” The company will be using this method as a roadmap to attempt to exponentially increase data transfer speeds for the company´s contemplated Infinitus Super Highway. Marius de Mos has agreed to assign the patent to the company for a symbolic USD 1.
The company intends to create a high-speed broadband airborne wireless network by linking commercial aircraft in flight. It is projected that each aircraft participating in the network will act as an airborne repeater or router, sending and receiving broadband signals from one aircraft to the next and creating a digital superhighway in the sky.
The company intends the network to be a high-speed broadband internet pipeline to improve coverage connectivity. The company does not intend to provide retail customer coverage to end users, but, instead, act as a wholesale carrier with target customers, such as internet service providers and telephone companies.
Currently, the world´s connectivity is achieved by use of undersea cables, ground based fiber and satellites. The company believes that the company´s airborne digital highway may be a solution to fill the world´s connectivity void. Once the network is developed and fully implemented, its uses may be limitless. The company´s network, once developed, should provide low cost, high-speed connectivity to rural areas, island nations, ships at sea, oil platforms, in addition to connectivity to commercial and private aircraft in flight.
