A 5G release could affect aircraft safety and cause thousands of flight delays | Univision Technology News

Aircraft manufacturers for commercial aircraft Boeing and Airbus A warned about Tuesday Plans to implement new 5G wireless networks Starting next month, the interruption of the renewal a Danger to major airline systems.

Companies have expressed concern about 5G operating at frequencies close to the frequencies used by airlines such as radio altimeters. Interruption may occur, Pilots cannot rely on those tools to monitor altitude above ground near specific airports.

Thus, be warned of the possibility Blizzard and low visibility flight delays If the 5G wireless version is enabled.

“The 5G interruption will negatively affect the aircraft’s ability to operate safely,” executives said in a letter to Transport Secretary Pete Boutique, saying “this will have a major negative impact on the aviation industry.”

According to the agency Reuters, Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun and Airbus Americas CEO Jeffrey Nittal are scheduled to launch the new technology on January 5 through AT&T and Verizon Communications.

“Legal Concern”

Last year, the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics, or RTCA, a non-profit organization that studies aviation electronics systems, released a report. 5G interruption is a legitimate concern And potential security risk.

No radio altimeters can be trusted to perform their intended function The FAA said that in the event of an interruption in wireless broadband operations, restrictions would be imposed that would limit certain functions that require radio altimeter data when both aircraft and helicopters have 5G band.

“The whole northeast corridor will be down under perfect foggy conditions,” he said. “Another thing that worries me is the Northwest: Seattle, Portland, foggy areas.”

AT&T y Verizon Paid $ 23,000 million and $ 45,000 million At frequencies 3.7-3.98 GHz earlier this year.

But despite that, In November they delayed the launch of the wireless service by a month C-Band and, in an effort to break the deadlock, have been told to limit the amount of power emitted from the 5G towers to six months and to give controllers an opportunity to assess whether the new technology will cause problems for the aircraft.
