    ABSTRACT 

    Air transport has become an essential economic and social conduit throughout the world, which is expected to grow continuously in the coming years. Demands of “free flight” for air traffic and “Internet above the clouds” for in- flight entertainment has inspired the conception of Aeronautical Ad-hoc Networks (AANET), which are reminiscent of high-end Vehicular Ad-hoc Networking (VANET). They might be characterized as autonomous and self-confi- gured wireless networking solutions for high-velocity aircraft. However, given the typically on order of magnitude higher aircraft speed, when compared to VANETs, AANETs tend to exhibit more dynamic topologies, larger and more variable geographical network size, stricter security requirements and more acrimonious propagation conditions. These characteristics lead to more grave challenges in scheduling, routing, channel modeling and antenna design, just to mention a few. These differences render many traditional VANET protocols inapplicable for AANETs, hence motivating the design of radically-improved AANET protocols in support of the unorthodox AANET scenarios and requirements. This keynote will characterize the associated scenarios, characteristics, requirements and challenges. Furthermore, we will critically appraise the applicability of existing VANET solutions to AANETs and motivate the research community to solve the rich set of open research problems in this radically new field.
