Applications V.1

There are a lot of interesting and innovative applications surfacing worldwide, therefore we want to take a moment to dedicate periodic posts highlighting our Applications page. In this weeks edition we link to articles covering how 5G data speeds will help evolve the medical industry; the first nanosatellite to beam a smarthphone call from space; wireless enabled clothing and wearable biometric rings to help replace passwords, keys, and credit cards; and how airplanes are turning into communications satellites.

NASA starts wind tunnel tests for its quiet supersonic jet

From Engadget: 

NASA's plans for a quiet supersonic jet, the QueSST, just became tangible: the agency and Lockheed Martin have started wind tunnel tests for the future X-plane. It's a scale model at this stage, but it will be subjected to winds as high as Mach 1.6 (950MPH) to gauge both its aerodynamic performance as well as parts of its propulsion system. The tests should run until the middle of 2017.

We're seeing the campaign for satellites to help propel the development of new 5G data speeds. Check out this interview with Magali Vassiere, Director of Telecommunications and Integrated Applications on ESA's partnership with the industry to develop and demonstrate the added value that satellite brings in the context of 5G.
