1 1 EMS Aviation Keeping Your World Connected WAEA SFW on Connectivity March 2010 Gary Hebb VP Innovation and Strategy EMS Technologies

2 2 Office, Manufacturing / Research & Development Headquarters Introducing: EMS Aviation Adelaide, Australia Takoma Park, MD Norcross, GA Ottawa, Canada Moorestown, NJ Tewkesbury, UK EMS SATCOM +EMS Formation +EMS Sky Connect ============== =EMS Aviation

3 3 The Network is Ready Internet Corporate Network Personal Devices Antennas Satellites Transceivers Servers Access points Firewall Air to Ground Gatelink

4 4 Short Burst Data Low Speed Data High Speed Data Broadband Data Safety Services Live TV Video Servers Wi-Fi

5 5 Gary in 2003 Conjuring up product roadmap

6 6 Cinema quality wireless seatback video distribution Ka-band antennas Looking forward from 2010

7 7 Do we need it? What data rates do we need? Is it possible? HD wireless video distribution

8 8 Current IFE systems: 500 lbs of Cable

9 9 Largest Contiguous Frequency Allocation in History Sets Blogosphere Atwitter 7 GHz of Spectrum

10 10 To Do:Find out about all the other countries 60 GHz Unlicensed Band

11 11 60 GHz Technology L band 1 to 2 GHz S band 2 to 4 GHz C band 4 to 8 GHz X band 8 to 12 GHz Ku band 12 to 18 GHz K band 18 to 26.5 GHz Ka band 26.5 to 40 GHz Q band 30 to 50 GHz U band 40 to 60 GHz V band 50 to 75 GHz E band 60 to 90 GHz Compared to WiFi –200 times as much spectrum –50 times the capacity SiBEAM –4 GBps, uncompressed HDMI SiBEAM makes smallest phased array antenna, ever Pasted from

12 12 SiBeam 60 GHz Technology

13 13 Wireless Uncompressed HD Video in Your Living Room

14 14 FCC Regulations

15 15 I dont want to discourage you, but …. Emerging standards probably not scalable to 100s of seats. Complete blockage by human bodies, drink carts Power Consumption (Gigabit data rates)

16 16 Ka-band Much Lower Cost per Bit than Ku or L Spot beam coverage More spectrum Less complex antenna (than Ku) No polarization steering required More difficult steering problem Can be resolved

17 17 Only Regional Coverage at Ka-band Need Ku to cover the oceans? Its hard enough to pay for one broadband antenna. Regional Ka-band competes with Air-to-Ground tough competition!

18 18 Ka-band Rain Fades Example: Telesat

19 19 Garys Long Term Outlook Wireless HD video distribution at 60 GHz can probably be made to work, but will keep folks like me busy for a long time. The technical problems at Ka- band can be solved, and can make passenger communications much more affordable. They are definitely worth solving if a global Ka network is built.
