Constellations - Explore Space Network Technologies with Industry Leaders

Jan 19, 2022

On today’s podcast, we'll go beyond the world of satellites and explore the potential of High Altitude Platforms or HAPs, uncrewed stratospheric, long duration telecommunications platforms designed to provide mobile telephony and broadband communications, among other applications. Do they represent an alternative or complementary service to satellites? To explain HAPs, we have with us today on Constellations Walt Andersen, Founder and CEO of Avealto, LTD., whose mission is to finance, build, and operate a fleet of High Altitude Platforms (HAPs). Among today’s topics, our guest will describe the three types of HAPS, how they will integrate into existing terrestrial and satellite infrastructure to provide low-cost connectivity throughout the world and why earlier versions of HAPs failed and why Avealto’s won’t.
