APITech Cavity Filter for Mitigation of 5G C-band Interference

On January 25th, APITech released an article titled “How Does 5G Affect Airline Industries?”  The paper (https://blog.apitech.com/blog/5g-aviation) detailed concerns related to the recent launch of the faster high-band 5G cellphone service in the United States and its potential impact on aircraft safety. The feedback from this article inspired filter and other novel solutions designed to mitigate wireless interference currently plaguing global aviation.

APITech’s Chief Technology Officer, Ian Dunn, recently spoke on this concern. “This is the first of many interference issues associated with higher frequency, broadband communications as wireless becomes the backbone of our ongoing digital transformation. APITech’s core mission and targeted investments in RF protection address the broader issue of protecting critical electronics infrastructure from an increasingly dense, confused and overlapping electromagnetic spectrum”.

As an example, APITech’s high-reliability BOM10648 cavity filter is designed to solve the emerging 5G C-band interference issue with radar altimeters and other critical avionics systems operating in the globally allocated 4.2-4.4 GHz aeronautical band. The passband of 4.2-4.4 GHz has less than 1 dB insertion loss and greater than 50 dB of signal rejection outside the aeronautical bandwidth with propagation delays of less than 2ns.  This filter housing is 4 inches long and 1 inch square with connector and mounting options available to satisfy any installation requirement

APITech’s high-performance RF cavity filter solutions allow 5G C-band to take flight.

Jeddah, The Red Sea International Film Festival has confirmed the second edition will take place from 1-10 December 2022. This comes following the successful inaugural edition that presented 138 films to over 30,000 filmgoers and 3,115 film professionals, media and students who came out in force to mark the landmark Festival.

Over the 10 days of the Festival, screenings were presented in 5 purpose-built theatres in the extraordinary cultural heart of Jeddah’s UNESCO World Heritage Site old-town AlBalad along with venues across the city and a showcase of the latest leading Virtual Reality (VR) storytelling and art projects.

An array of filmmakers and talent graced the red carpets, hosted masterclasses and engaged with Festival goers.

The first edition featured 138 films and shorts from 67 countries in 34 languages, female directors accounted for 38% of the film slate and an impressive 27 new Saudi films from an exciting wave of filmmakers presented the international audience with a unique opportunity to explore all aspects of Saudi society, and in turn, provide a vital platform for Saudi filmmakers to present their work on the big screen to the global film industry and local audiences.

The Red Sea Souk was deemed a huge success bringing together the local, regional and international industry for 4 days of curated events to foster co-production, international distribution, and new business opportunities. A bustling industry market welcomed an array of exhibiting companies including, buyers, sales agents, film commissions, distributors, and exhibitors. The Red Sea Souk concluded with more than 700,000 USD awarded to projects selected in the Red Sea Souk Awards. Following the Souk, Festival goers were able to attend Talent Days, a two-day initiative designed to support the development of the next generation of Saudi filmmakers.

The Festival’s film competition saw Academy Award-winning Italian director and writer Giuseppe Tornatore at the helm and along with his fellow jurors, they presented 13 Yusr Awards to recognise the highest achievements in storytelling. ‘Brighton 4th’ directed by Levan Koguashvili scooped Best Film and the Festival’s Audience Award went to Hamzah K.

Throughout the year the Red Sea International Film Festival supports the next generation of filmmakers from Saudi Arabia and the Arab world through initiatives including The Red Sea Lodge which is now open for submissions from teams of Saudi and Arab directors, producers, and scriptwriters.
