Aeronautical and Maritime Communications Eco-system

#aeronautical #maritime #satellite #communications #aircraft



In this webinar, we will provide a general overview of aeronautical and maritime broadband satellite communications. We will go through different satellite constellations that are commercially available and discuss each constellation's benefits and limitations.

This webinar will discuss different operation altitudes for the satellite constellation and coverage areas that major satellite operators deploy for their daily activities. We plan to cover high-level information on aircraft and boat characteristics and how their mobility features must be compensated in the satellite communications environment.

We will also go over the design process and reflect on some recent R & D activities in this field. System constellations with terminals used at popular sites are reviewed. We will look at the integrated system design methodology and provide an overview of the market trends and challenges in the satellite communication mobility field.

Finally, different scenarios of in-flight entertainment and maritime satellite operations will be presented with a focus on network architecture and protocols commonly used for antenna terminals.
