President of FreeFlight Systems, Anthony Rios, Presents at Connected Aviation Intelligence Summit

As an industry leader radar altimetry and the 5G landscape, FreeFlight Systems’ President Anthony Rios, will be speaking at the Connected Aviation Intelligence Summit segment titled “5G C-Band: What’s the Long-Term Solution for the US Aviation Industry?” The FCC is auctioning more bandwidth for 5G and while most agree with this decision, as there is a demand for faster data services, there is also evidence that this could negatively impact aviation operations.

Studies have found that there could be interference issues potentially caused by the 5G C-band being adjacent to the frequencies radar altimeters operate on. As radar altimeter systems have widespread use in airliners, business jets, and general aviation aircraft, this is a significant operational concern. In this interactive session, Anthony Rios, along with other experts from within the industry discuss a long-term resolution that will allow 5G C-band wireless services and flight operations to safely co-exist.

This session will take place from 11:00 am to 11:45 am on Wednesday, June 1.
