A perspective for future high data-rate communication systems are quasi-geostationary high altitude platform (HAP) systems, where communications platforms are placed in the stratosphere at altitudes between 20 and 30 km and are kept stationary. Situated over congested urban areas they will be capable of handling high data rate traffic like a geostationary satellite. Due to the specific altitudes of these platforms, communications cross links between either two platforms are not as severely… CONTINUE READING
