Airborne Base Station Communication Systems

Project Description

This project is fundamentally characterising and optimizing information gathering, dissemination, and communication capacities of airborne base stations to enable low latency communications in rural and remote areas. New technologies such as precision farming, safe remote equipment operation in mining, and wide area surveillance and security, require low latency communications that are an order of magnitude beyond what is currently available from satellite links. The expected outcome will be radically new base station deployment and flight path planning, and data transmission technologies. These will unlock new application technologies by enabling secure wide-spread communications coverage, delivering economic benefits to remote Australia.
