With the advent of 5G technology, airlines and airports are looking for options to provide greater safety in air traffic.
We know that 5G technology has been the talk of the town in recent months, because of how it affects the signal in the vicinity of airports during unfavorable weather conditions.
That is why the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has taken into consideration talking with telecommunications companies to take measures for safety.
One of the main points to be addressed is the replacement of radio altimeters that may be affected by interference from the 5G C-band signal.
The altimeter is the one that provides data on the height of an aircraft above the ground, this data is essential for landings, especially in unfavorable weather conditions.
Due to the function of the altimeter, the concern of airlines is increasing day by day. Since in the past months 5G technology caused interruptions in some U.S. airports.
Another point in the debate will be the inclusion of antenna filters to minimize interference. In addition, with this adaptation, the most vulnerable aircraft will be studied to make the appropriate adaptations.
This is undoubtedly a major step towards mitigating interference and ensuring flight safety worldwide.
