each aircraft is a part of the peer-to-peer network.   . The development will be the maturing of the Airborne Internet to enable the full SATS (Small Aircraft Transportation System) vision. The Airborne Internet architecture is a client-server network system architecture. In the airborne internet architecture.

   Land-based lines are limited physically in how much data they can deliver because of the diameter of the cable or phone line. Networks using high-altitude aircraft will also have a cost advantage over satellites because the aircraft can be deployed easily -. there is no such physical limitation.they don't have to be launched into space . The airborne Internet won't be completely wireless . . In an airborne Internet. enabling a broader capacity.

The Proteus plane will carry the network hub for the HALO Network . Angel Technologies is planning an airborne Internet network. called High Altitude Long Operation (HALO). Fig.

which is what allows the plane to relay data signals from ground stations to your workplace and home computer.4 miles (15. The airborne-network hub consists of an antenna array and electronics for wireless communication.3 and 18. Proteus will fly at heights of 9.5 and 11.3 km) and cover an area up to 75 miles (120. At the heart of Angel's Proteus planes is the one-ton airborne-network hub.    . Each plane will fly for eight hours before the next plane takes off.7 km) in diameter.

. 40-60 mile diameter service area (1250 to 2800 square miles).  The HALO Aircraft would provide urban and rural coverage from a single platform to provide service to 100-750000 subscribers. Each spot beam from the payload antenna serves a single "cell" on the ground in a frequency-division multiplex fashion with 5 to 1 frequency reuse. four for subscriber units and the fifth for gateways to the public network and to high rate subscribers.

The HALO Network Architecture .

and through the HALO™ Gateway ("HG") equipment directly connected to distant metropolitan areas via leased trunks.  The payload of the HALO Aircraft becomes the hub of a star topology network for routing data packets between any two subscribers possessing premise equipment within the service coverage area. . each link connecting the payload to the subscriber. The links are wireless. broadband and line of sight. Information created outside service area is delivered to the subscriber's consumer premise equipment ("CPE") through business premise equipment ("BPE") operated by Internet Service Providers ("ISPs") or content providers within that region. A single hop with only two links is required.


The high look angle allows the sharing of this spectrum with ground-based wireless networks sine usually high gain. This value corresponds to subscribers at the perimeter of the service footprint. . narrow beams are used and antenna beams of the HALO and ground-based networks will be separated in angle far enough to ensure a high degree of signal isolation.  Angel assumes that “minimum look angle” is higher than 20degrees.

   . Airborne Internet has the potential to change the way aircraft receive and send data. Airborne Internet provides aircraft to aircraft communications in support of air traffic management. It seems that airborne internet could take off in the very near future. A. will provide an interconnected digital data network between aircraft and to/from the ground.I.
