Connectivity all over the world, the challenge of HAPS Alliance part from the stratosphere
From the islands the most remote areas of the mountain, from developing Countries to maritime areas, the mobile network could reach many more places on the Planet, thanks to projects like the one brought forward by PERHAPS Alliance. The name comes from the technical solution designed to achieve the objective: HAPS is an acronym for High Altitude Platform Station, or a system to provide connectivity through radio links, the high-altitude, created by special vehicles.
The idea is not new, just think, for example, the experiment carried out by Facebook with its drone eagle that has stopped to fly in 2018, or to the projects taken forward by Loon - a rib of the Alphabet - with the balloons, capable of a record flight at high altitude (see fig. that fixed last year). Vehicles HAPS are designed to reach the stratosphere (an altitude lower than that of the satellites, but it was enough to overcome any obstacles to the connectivity that you meet on the surface of the Earth - whether grounds man-made (infrastructure, buildings, etc.) whether created by nature.
Again, now there is the commitment to actually implement these ideas, thanks to a joint effort of the major companies operating in the technology sector, the telecommunications and aviation industry. The agreement recently announced is an extension of the one initially concluded in April last year between HAPSMobile (subsidiary of SoftBank) and the previously mentioned Loon.
