The AeroMobile system will be available from mid-2006 allowing flyers to use their own mobile phones and PDAs while aboard.

Axis, a specialist in the aerospace sector, will carry out design for manufacture, complex build, test and environmental screening of the product and work alongside ARINC’s design partner and local firm, TTP plc.

The AeroMobile CRFMU ensures that passengers’ phones do not interfere with ground-based cellular networks, while the overall AeroMobile system ensures that cell phones operate at minimum power levels thereby ensuring safe operation with respect to aircraft systems.
