Integration experiments of the Aerial LTE Platform

During this spring, the team from THALES and HELIKITES together with the suppport of BAPCO conducted initial integration tests of the ABSOLUTE LTE sub-systems on board the Aerial Helikite platform. The experiments took place in the UK at the HELIKITES premises. a few pictures of the integration tests are shown below.

The integration trials of the overall ABSOLUTE system in preparation for the final ABSOLUTE public demonstration event took place at the Mattsies airport premises close to Munich, during early July. The details of the trials will be posted soon. Also coming up shortly is the details of the final ABSOLUTE demo event.
