Final Report - B-VHF (Broadband VHF aeronautical communication system based on MC-CDMA)

Project ID: 502910
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


This is the final summary report of the B-VHF research project, which has been co-funded by the European Commission under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), has investigated a new approach to overcome the VHF spectrum bottleneck. The main focus of the B-VHF project was initially put on the feasibility analysis of a broadband VHF aeronautical communications system based on multi-carrier code-division multiple-access (MC-CDMA) technology.

The report initially covers the background on current VHF communication technology used in air transport and then states the project's objectives. It explains the innovations, system requirements and set up and also the experiments, validation tests and scenario-tests conducted. There is, finally, an assessment of the project's success and findings and recommendations for future research.
