Airborne Wireless Network (OTC QB: ABWN) has completed its proof of concept flight tests in Roswell, New Mexico, the company said.
The Proof of Concept flight tests were performed using two Boeing 767s and a temporary mobile mast system, emulating a ground station.
The company plans to provide the results of the flight tests once all of the data have been compiled from all participating partners.
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.
