An airplane attendant remarks that the new satellite antenna that guarantees to connect and transfer data with moving objects like trains, vehicles, and planes is worth looking out for, especially in this era of technological surprises. The flight attendant has spent most of his time on flights stalling the Wi-Fi operation and got used to web pages breaking. He hopes that the new technology will have resolved the problem.
Streaming movies in transportation machines will be a spectacular concept that will help vehicles attain independence from cellular communications control if it succeeds.
The introduction of satellite antennas into cars is not a new concept. Sixteen years ago, scientists introduced the Kavah TracVision A5 to connect with DirectTV using antennas, but the technology was not plausible since the system wasn’t infusible into cars.
The phased array system that facilitates the communication between planes and control centers is better, but interference signals impede the proper access of communication and the internet while on planes. The solution to this problem of interferences lies in the inclusion of elements in the spaced elements which come with other problems like high prices and power usage, which produces heat in the plane’s system. The expunged heat reduces the reliability and the proper working of the antenna.
NXTCOMM is selling and advertising the antenna technology developed by scientists at the Georgia Tech Research Institute. The company is working on the phenomenon where they can retract the destructive interference that results from widely spacing the elements to form a constructive interference without inducing the other problems. The technology will also allow the antenna to align itself within the aircraft or the car to attract signals faster.
The new NXTCOMM antenna is more efficient in identifying the required signals and transmitting them to a transducer saving the customers the trouble their rivals are experiencing. The power consumed by this new technology reduces once the antenna is in action minimizing the heating up effect.
Various antennas offer different transmission frequencies, ranging from 300 MHz to 30 GHz depending on the altitude between the satellite and the moving device or machine. In this case, one NXTCOMM antenna can take care of the tv broadcast, satellite radio, and the GPS without mixing up the signals. This concept is possible because the antennas on Earth are one way where they send their data to the antennas directly.
In conclusion, technology is currently expensive, given it is the first time it is entering the market, and the early adopters will have to pay more for it. This move will facilitate the expansion of the facilities developing the technology to use the economies of scale to make it affordable to all the citizens.
