Airborne Wireless Network (OTCQB: ABWN) has provided an update and preliminary timeline on its “Proof of Concept Aircraft Flight-Test” for the development of its patented air-to-air communication system, the Infinitus Super Highway, the company said.
ABWN recently announced that it has been granted an experimental operating certificate by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to ground and flight-test its demonstration system which is scheduled to occur during the latter part of 2017.
The company, along with its strategic partners, are in the process of planning and organizing its Proof of Concept Aircraft Flight-Test. It intends to use two active jet aircraft to conduct test routes around Roswell, New Mexico.
ABWN 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.
Simi Valley, California-based Airborne Wireless Network, a developmental stage company, focuses on developing, marketing, and licensing a wholesale fully-meshed high-speed broadband airborne wireless network.
