Fly-by-Wireless & Less Wire Revolution for Aircraft and Spacecraft Vehicles, UAV’s & SHM :
The 5th CANEUS Fly-by-Wireless Workshop - FBW12 will focus on advancing the End-User driven International Public-Private Consortia projects
During the FBW 2011 Workshop, end-users identified and proposed eight (8) fly-by-wireless project concepts for advancing to system / product demonstration level. Now, the task is to select those concepts for the collaborative project development step that will be supported by the complete supply chain, can succeed in securing the financing, and have strong business case.
“To create a world class, state-of-the-art wireless testing and research facility that will benefit the Aerospace industry worldwide for applications ranging from SHM, Aviation RF Communication Spectrum, Wireless Simulators, Wireless Engine and possibly UAV applications”
