One could dream of seats with wireless built-in screens, connected to a server. Installation would take a few hours. Wiring weight would be saved. Management of content would be unlimited, and fully software controlled. Operating and equipment costs would be negligible. Well, today, your dream has come true. It’s AIR STREAMER. Even better, passengers can use their own devices, WIFI connected with their own browsers. Content will never overload the video cloud (5 to 50 TB if required). Full quality simultaneous streaming provides access for 500 passengers per aircraft.
Simple and cost-effective screens, built in each seat, can also join the IFE wireless network, saving wiring, weight, maintenance and costly management, compared to competing solutions.
Custom configurated content is multi-cultural and multilingual.
News is updated on the ground with 4G/5G land mobile networks, and by satellite in-flight, but without necessarily satellite connectivity to operate aloft.
At last Hamburg AIRCRAFT INTERIORS tradeshow, WIFI ANALYZER proved AIR STREAMER to be 200 times more performant in range and streaming capability than any other WIFI in the exhibition hall. (See details here below.)
Crew members all use iPAD, iPhone and other devices on duty in flight.
AIR SAT is your crew’s private mobile Satcom for voice calls, SMS texting, data, email or Twitter. Up to five terminals can be operated: this means one for the captain, one for the first officer and three in cabin. Password protects access to them only. One at a time can make a voice call. A mini telephone switch enable voice call transfers between them. All other data communication can occur simultaneously.
In case of unexpected medical problems in flight, cabin crew can go to the passenger on his seat, and call medical services on the ground to organise a remote diagnostic in voice. Call can be transferred to the captain, to evaluate the need of diversion.
Facing an unexpected technical problem with no existing prevention procedure, crew can directly discuss with operations.
In flight delay situations, crew can discuss solutions with the ground for important transit passengers upon arrival.
Old fashion hand held telephones are easy to replace with AIR SAT, so on board anyone can use their personal devices to make their calls.
On business aircrafts VIP passengers in cabin have access to the WIFI network to make their own calls.
In case of diversions, crew and passengers can discuss the different solutions with the ground.
AIR SAT enclosure has an IRIDIUM transceiver, a WIFI router, a power converter and a built in WIFI antennas.
On crew tablets, an airtime attractive program offers two and a half hours voice talking time and unlimited SMS messages, Tweets, Email up to 50 KB and data for 175 $ per month.
AIR SAT has an optional virtual wourld wide real time weather radar. Selecting your route, it picks up all radar images along and aside as well as all TAF and METARS of airports updated automatically with zoom in and out function.
AIR SAT is supplied with engineering modification procedures designed by a PART 21 organization. It includes installation and maintenance procedures, plus manuals with drawings. Part 145 organisation maintaining the aircraft is taking care for installation on the aircraft.
At Hamburg AIRCRAFT INTERIROS world tradeshow on April 2,to 5th, 2019, a WIFI analysis scanning all WIFI transmissions of all competing networks. It showed AIR STREAMER to outperform any competing network.
With -41 dB signal strength, AIR STREAMER came out better then the closest comptitor at only -72 dB.
Per dB difference, the capability in range doubles, as well as streaming capacity.
This means that AIR STREAMER is 200 times more performant.
AIR STREAMER was set to hit a WIFI simulator with the maximum simultaneous accesses of 88 it could handle at the same microsecond. AIR STREAMER showed a load of only 2,5% of its processor. This proved its capacity to stream to 500 passengers simultaneously.
A press release was performed after the show. Several editiors observing the analysis will publish reports soon in professional publications.
