AeroMACS – Broadband for Aviation

A unique, specialized broadband standard for the Aviation Industry

A unique collaboration between the aviation community, WiMAX Forum and key players in the wireless industry has fostered the development of a standard to be used worldwide by airports and the aviation industry for surface/ground communications. AeroMACS (Aeronautical Mobile Airport Communications System), standardizes these communications networks to adhere to particular parameters, and has defined a certification process to ensure that the equipment meets safety and regulatory requirements. This wireless technology will be used for airport ground applications as well as for safety, surveillance and traffic control.

Telrad is proud to have the first-ever AeroMACS certified product. Our AeroMACS solutions offers high throughput, high-level authentication and encryption algorithms, low delay times, and can be customized for higher upload configuration, supporting upload-centric applications such as surveillance. AeroMACS operates in the protected aviation spectrum band from 5091 MHz to 5150 MHz.

Major strengths of AeroMACS are the flexibility, reliability, and scalability. It presents a significantly lower cost and less disruptive alternative to the cable loop technology used previously and has the capacity to support a wide range of air traffic applications providing connectivity for fixed and mobile assets across the airport area.
