A technical seminar on air borne internet A technical seminar on air borne internet Presentation Transcript

  • A Technical Seminar On Airborne Internet Submitted by K.Rajendra Prasad 10B41A1244 Information technology
  • CONTENTS • Introduction • Need for airborne internet • Halo network • Implementation Systems • Future Enhancements • Conclusion
  • INTRODUCTION • Airborne Internet is a private, secure, reliable peer-to-peer aircraft communications network • It is useful in providing the information about weather, surrounding airspace environment and for aircraft-to-aircraft communications.
  • The Need for Airborne Internet • Airborne Internet is seen as the perfect answer to the demand for fast, reliable access to the Internet as well as quick and easy file 'sharing.’ • Conventional telephone lines, for example, are capable of transmitting only 56,000 bits (56k) per second under ideal conditions
  • WHAT IS HALO NETWORK • The High Altitude Long Operation Network is a broadband wireless metropolitan area network, with a star topology. • The HALO network will be located in the atmosphere, at an altitude miles above terrestrial wireless, but hundreds to thousands of miles below satellite networks.
  • IMPLEMENTATION SYSTEMS Three companies Focused on the development of airborne internet 1. Angel technology 2. Sky station blimp 3. NASA sub space plans
  • ANGEL TECHNOLOGIES • The centerpiece of this network is the Proteus plane, which will carry wireless networking equipment into the air. • The Proteus plane will carry the network hub for the HALO Network
  • The heart of Angel's Proteus plane is the one-ton airborne-network hub Network hub consists of an antenna array and electronics for wireless communication An 18-foot dish underneath the plane is responsible for reflecting high-speed data signals from a ground station to your computer
  • SKY STATION BLIMP • Sky Station International is counting on its blimps, in the race to deliver high-speed Internet access from high altitudes and calls them as lighter-than-air platforms, and plans to station these airships , one over each city. • Each station would fly at an altitude of 13 miles (21 km) and provide wireless service to an area of approximately 7,500 square miles (19,000 square km).
  • Each blimp will be equipped with a telecommunications payload to provide wireless broadband connections.
  • NASA SUB SPACE PLANS • NASA's Sub-space Plans NASA is also playing a role in a potential airborne Internet system being developed by AeroVironment • The Helios aircraft will be equipped with telecommunications equipment and stay airborne for six months straight. • The Helios prototype is constructed out of materials such as carbon fiber, graphite epoxy, Kevlar and Styrofoam, covered with a thin, transparent skin.
  • WORKING OF AI • There will be ground-based components to any type of airborne Internet network. • The consumers will have to install an antenna on their home or business in order to receive signals from the network hub overhead. • Airborne-Internet systems will require that an antenna be attached to the side of your house or work place.
  • Continue… • satellite internet access • The airborne Internet won't be completely wireless. • satellite systems are about 10 times faster than a normal modem.
  • Installation of antenna
  • ROADMAP OF FUTURE ACTIVITIES • We intend to continue applying the methodology defined above to develop Airborne Internet alternatives, • analyze the advantages and disadvantages of each alternative and arrive at a recommendation. • A separate security assessment will be produced
  • CONCLUSION Thus this airborne internet technology has a wide range of utilities in the field of aviation services like Aircraft monitoring and air traffic management, weather information etc.. And also provides an opportunity to access the internet at very high altitudes that is, in the aeroplanes and other conventional services
