The future of telecommunications: TAO HAPS
Data transfer from the stratosphere is the future, because it is cheaper and also “healthier”, if you do it right. “Right” means without space debris like the satellites produce and with less radiation. The TAO High Altitude Platform Technology – also known as High Altitude Pseudo Satellite (HAPS) – is launchable and landable and is considerably less expensive and more powerful than currently known applications, both in terms of investment and operating costs. The TAO SkyDragon HAP is reusable, technically maintainable, recyclable and – as already mentioned – it does not generate space debris.
The TAO SkyDragon as HAP has the following characteristics:
The special TAO SkyDragon enables flying at high altitudes, in the stratosphere and a defined landing and safe recovery. In the meantime, interested parties from all over the world recognize the value of our environmentally friendly and peaceful technology.
