Aerial Base Stations with Opportunistic Links for Unexpected & Temporary Events

ABSOLUTE is a highly ambitious and unique effort, investigating and validating a novel heterogeneous network architecture combining aerial, terrestrial and satellite communications links for broadband applications during large scale emergency recovery or temporary events. The main goal of ABSOLUTE is to design and validate a holistic and rapidly deployable mobile network to provide broadband services. This project has been successfully closed in 2015 and Nomor was one of the leading players in the prototype development.
