Mobility and Bandwidth - Airborne Use Case


Published on

At Milsatcom Middle East, Koen Willems gave a presentation about airborne mobility, and related satellite communication challenges. How do you achieve HD video in harsh conditions? How do you maintain availability in all times?

In an ISR BLOS customer case Koen Willems explains how technology can help to overcome these throughput and availability challenges.

  3. 3. XXFACING THE REALITY OF BLOS AIRBORNE MOBILITY• Typical SD Video• MPEG-2: 3-6 Mbps• MPEG-4: 1-2 Mbps• HVEC: 512 kbps• Typical HD Video• MPEG-2: 31-42Mbps• MPEG-4: 10-20Mbps• HVEC: 5-10 Mbps
  4. 4. Newtec Proprietary – UnrestrictedISR BLOSCUSTOMER CASEREQUIREMENTS• Small Airframe with high data demands• 10-20 Mbps from plane to ground• 2 Mbps from ground to back to plane• Certification requirements (testing & operational usage)• Multiple aircraft support• Form Factor• Network Design• Support on multiple satellites• User Interface fit for non-satellite expert operators
