Access-in-Motion™ (AIM) refers to broadband connectivity among passengers in planes, trains, cruise ships, and so on. Travelers are increasingly disappointed by slow or expensive connectivity compared to what they experience from terrestrial mobile and Wi-Fi hotspots. The satellite systems that serve them suffer from limited capacity, high latency, and tend to be bulky and expensive. That’s why some AIM operators combine satellites with faster and less expensive terrestrial networks. Holographic Beam Forming™ (HBF) boosts the agility, range, capacity, spectral efficiency of the terrestrial network portion, while also reducing equipment C-SWaP (cost, size weight and power). HBF’s high-capacity, long range and interference-avoiding data links, combined with electronic speed beam switching — Directivity-on-Demand™ — mean fewer base stations along the shore for cruise ships, across the country for planes, and along tracks for trains. Moreover, AIM operators benefit from not only lower C-SWaP, but also the ability of that HBF equipment to conform to aerodynamic or curved surfaces.
