SIMI VALLEY, Calif., May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Airborne Wireless Network (OTCQB: ABWN) today 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 HighwayTM. The Company recently announced that it has been granted an experimental operating certificate by the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”), file number 0378-EX-ST-2017X, to ground and flight-test its demonstration system which is scheduled to occur during the latter part of 2017.
Airborne Wireless Network, along with its strategic partners, are in the process of planning and organizing its Proof of Concept Aircraft Flight-Test. The Company intends to use two active jet aircraft to conduct test routes around Roswell, New Mexico. Airborne Wireless Network is coordinating closely with its strategic partners in planning and conducting the test.
Jason T. de Mos, Vice President of Business Development and Aviation Compliance, said, “The objective for this three-point aircraft testing is to validate, at micro scale, our ability to act as an airborne repeater or router to send and receive broadband signals from one aircraft to the next, creating a digital superhighway in the sky. We have recently announced receiving our experimental FCC license and will now be able to begin our test flight, bringing us one step closer to the development of our Infinitus Super HighwayTM. We look forward to collaborating with our strategic partners in completing this test and improving overall airborne communications.”
