Recently, the UK space agency made a commitment to invest in HAPs (High Altitude Platforms) with over $25M to improve connectivity & technology. Additionally, several companies such as Mira Aerospace (JV between UAVOS & Bayanat) & BAE Systems achieved testing milestones, while Chinese ALifecom is addressing interoperability of HAPs architecture with other NTN systems. These.
As we journey into an era of rapidly advancing technology, the future of Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) lies in exploring novel approaches that can provide greater accuracy, extensive coverage, and real-time data. For applications such as climate change (i.e., disaster management (i.e., fire, floods, earthquakes, landslides, tsunamis, etc.), and reconnaissance (i.e., battlefield coverage, front-lines.
In the digital age, fair access to dependable broadband services remains a pressing concern, particularly in rural and low-density areas. High-Altitude Platforms (HAPs) appear as a potential options as telecom providers attempt to overcome the digital divide. But how should these businesses choose which solution is the best? NSR’s High Altitude Platform, 5th Edition report.
To tap into the larger market opportunity, HAPS solutions in the stratosphere need to operate in harsh thermal conditions, including temperatures as low as -90° C. The white paper shows how HAPS Alliance member organizations are navigating these challenges to build a cooperative ecosystem. In fact, by 2029, the HAPS market is expected to reach.
