Solve 5G Interference to Aircraft Radar Altimeters with Simulation
At the beginning of 2022, new 5G C-band cellular services were initiated across the U.S., sparking concern that signals from the 5G radio units could interfere with aircraft and rotorcraft radar altimeters. The question of the radio frequency (RF) coexistence of these systems was raised by the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) in early January, leading cellular service providers to delay using the new cellular band.
This webinar will show how modeling and simulation provide a powerful capability to explore any radar altimeter, on any aircraft, at any airport runway, against any C-band 5G service towers within a given radius.
What you will learn
- Why modeling and simulation provide a powerful capability to explore any radar altimeter, on any aircraft, at any airport runway, against any C-band 5G service towers
- Simulation can execute computer-based validation without requiring flight time or impacting airport operations
- Various scenarios involving dynamics of flight emergencies or situations not safely flown in real-life test flights
- Why simulation is a cost-effective and repeatable way to test and validate combinations of radar altimeters, host aircraft, C-Band 5G base station combinations and parameters, and airport locations
