Uavos Joined Haps Alliance To Evolve The High-Altitude Unmanned Platforms Technology Market

By Eric Van Rees - 16th July 2020 - 06:39

UAVOS is proud to announce joining the High Altitude Platform Station (HAPS) industry Alliance with some of the world’s leading companies to promote the use of high-altitude solar-powered autonomous aircraft for facilitating global research missions, communication, connectivity, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance from the stratosphere.

UAVOS has joined the HAPS Alliance to collaborate with member companies towards accelerating the development and adoption of HAPS technology into the evolution of the high altitude unmanned platforms market. UAVOS’s HAPS knowledge is based on test flights for more than 1000 hours of HAPS flight tests at altitudes of up to 6600 ft (20,000 m). The ApusDuo project is the second generation of UAVOS”s HAPS solar airplane.

HAPS platforms are autonomous, high-altitude, ultra-long endurance aircraft powered by solar energy which are designed to boost internet connectivity worldwide, to provide a long continuous monitoring of the Earth's surface, to create a network of autonomous repeaters and high speed data signals. High altitude unmanned platforms operate in the stratosphere which is above ground infrastructure but below satellites, allowing for near ubiquitous coverage, which avoids ground clutter and significant latency issues.
