Today‘s challenge will be tomorrow’s normal
In our daily life, we tend to take the connectivity for granted.
We can use smartphones almost everywhere / anytime without any stress.
However, the number of people without Internet access is said tobe 3.7 billion, which is nearly a half of the worldʼs population.
HAPSMobile will establish new infrastructure to create a society where people and things are connected around the world.
HAPSMobile will lead the Information Revolution.
We will continue to pioneer the future by providing reliable connectivity.
Our stratosphere-based communication platform uses an unmanned aircraft system
“Sunglider” which continuously flies in the stratosphere as a base station and
delivers connectivity directly to mobile devices on the ground.
It is also a sustainable solution as Sunglider can fly solely on solar energy
with its highly efficient solar panels.
Weather is mild throughout the year in the stratosphere with little change in wind speed,
which allows Sunglider to fly with stability.
Duration: Several months
Battery: High energy density Lithium ion
Developed payload together with Loon in February 2020
This payload will be mounted on Sunglider and act as a base station floating in the stratosphere.
At Spaceport America in New Mexico on September 21 MT, the test marked the world’s first successful delivery of LTE connectivity from a fixed-wing HAPS autonomous aircraft in the stratosphere.
Using MIMO technology, the payload enabled LTE connectivity to be delivered continuously for approximately 15 hours during Sunglider’s test flight.
HAPSMobile founded the HAPS Alliance with Loon.
The HAPS Alliance will encourage and foster a HAPS market ecosystem with various telecom and aerospace companies.
- Form cooperative structures across industry borders
- Accelerate HAPS technologies and businesses
- Secure safety and establish systems
- Aggregate the voices of the HAPS industry
