Alphabet Inc., Google’s parent company, and Japanese technology giant Softbank have announced a minor breakthrough in their efforts to make flying cell towers a reality by operating a steady “LTE” connection from a solar powered drone 62,000 feet high in the upper atmosphere.

The connection was good enough to support an international video call, with participants from Japan and America, and the airborne cell towers have a number of advantages over the ground towers, as they can cover a larger geographic area and be transported to where they are needed, and this technology is still in use. Development, although the concept is outdated.

The test comes as part of a partnership between Loon and HAPSMobile, which was first announced in April 2019. Loon is known for its balloon-based cell towers to provide communications, while HAPSMobile builds the aircraft.

The huge autonomous drone is called “Sunglider”, it is powered by solar energy and is designed to stay in the air for months at a time. The huge “Sunglider” looks like a single huge wing, about 78 meters wide, and is powered by 10 fans at a top speed of 110 km in the clock.

“The successful LTE test is the first of its kind in the world for a fixed-wing autonomous aircraft,” HAPSMobile said, adding: “The implementation was carried out as planned in the difficult conditions of the upper atmosphere, where wind speeds reached more than 58 knots.” About 30 meters per second and temperatures as low as -73 degrees Celsius.

The LTE connection was used to support the video conference, in which the CEO of “Loon”, the external director of “HAPSMobile”, and the vice president of “Google” participated. “HAPSMobile” claims that the call was high-definition with low latency, although it was Provides details of connection speeds.

“The test flight is close to achieving its goal of building environmentally friendly aircraft that can provide high-speed Internet anywhere in the world,” HAPSMobile CEO and Chairman Junichi Miyakawa said in a press release.
