An old idea reborn with modern technology

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.

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.
