Gogo challenges SmartSky patent
An inter partes review re-examines the claims in a patent to determine whether or not they are valid. In this case, Gogo has raised issues with SmartSky Networks' '947 patent.

Gogo Business Aviation has submitted a petition to the US Patent and Trademark Office requesting an inter partes review of a patent granted to SmartSky Networks relating to a terrestrial based high speed data communications mesh network.

An inter partes review re-examines the claims in a patent to determine whether or not they are valid.

“We strongly believe that the '947 patent granted to SmartSky is not valid,” says Sergio Aguirre, president Gogo Business Aviation. “We have submitted evidence of published materials clearly showing that well before SmartSky asserts to have invented the concepts in the '947 patent, others had conceived of the claimed subject matter. Further, we believe there are many of SmartSky's patents that are not valid. This is only one of many patents we could have challenged in a patent review.”
