SIMI VALLEY, California, August 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Airborne Wireless Network (OTCQB: ABWN), a Nevada corporation (the "Company") is pleased to announce the appointment of airborne wireless communications pioneer Marius de Mos as its Vice President of Technical Affairs and Development.
On August 19, 2016, the Company and Mr. de Mos entered into a written Employment Agreement, pursuant to which Mr. de Mos will serve as the Company's Vice President of Technical Affairs and Development.
Mr. de Mos' past experience makes him one of the first pioneers of today's airborne in-cabin radio systems, which paved the way for wireless inflight entertainment, Wi-Fi systems and the use of cellular technology in flight.
Mr. de Mos has been involved since the conceptual stages of the Company's patent and its airborne meshed network. He was approached by the patent's inventor to evaluate the concept and assist in diminishing any conceptual problems. Airborne Wireless Network believes Mr. de Mos is a valuable asset crucial to the development of the world's first airborne digital highway.
Mr. de Mos has an extensive background in worldwide telecommunications, ranging from the development and commissioning of long and short-range terrestrial systems, to satellite and cutting-edge airborne technologies. Many of these systems were installed globally and are/were owned and/or managed by local or central governments and well-known companies such as GTE, Verizon, Motorola, AT&T, UK-based Cable and Wireless and others.
Although Mr. de Mos' college major was aeronautical electronic systems, his first "true aeronautical project" was his involvement in the development of the world's first wireless airborne public telephone, "Airfone." Before the FAA's certification of Airfone, transmitting radio frequencies inside of an airborne aircraft was considered "dangerous" and, "for safety's sake," was prohibited.
