The future of Satellite-Based Communications and Surveillance

Session Overview

A new allocation to AMS(R)S (aeronautical mobile-satellite (route) service) in the aeronautical VHF band (117.975 – 137 MHz) has been approved after a 4 year cycle of intense work at the ITU.
With this new attribution, Startical can make use of the aeronautical band from space so its satellite constellation can offer VHF communications services (voice and data) and surveillance in oceanic and remote areas without any modification in existing avionic. This will be a huge benefit for the aeronautical community, increasing safety, efficiency and allowing the use of new optimal and more ecological routes.
