The Air-Tower airborne telecommunications platform can be deployed when needed as an emergency backup for ground infrastructure or it can be deployed in 24/7 rotations that keep a constant wireless mesh above a specified geographic area. The system combines the large flexible reach of satellites with the strong signals of terrestrial towers.
An old idea reborn with modern technology
Even when kept in permanently airborne 24/7 shifts, the Air-Tower platform has one of the lowest cost per square mile of deployment for large scale coverage out of any existing technology. It also has a lower cost of entry compared to any satellite system.
