The satellite company Intelsat appears to descend to Earth. Or at least a little lower.
Specifically, Intelsat seeks permission from the FCC to test LTE connections in Arizona from a “high-altitude platform system” or HAPS. The company said HAPS is an unmanned aircraft operated by Airbus and that it will allow the company to offer an unspecified “broadband application” for fixed and mobile users, including those with iPhones.
Intelsat declined to answer questions about the Light Reading test. However, the company has made no secret of its interest in HAPS operations, which typically operate in the stratosphere, or about 60,000 feet above the Earth’s surface. While this is certainly up there, Intelsat’s traditional geostationary satellites typically orbit the globe about 20,000 miles above the Earth’s surface.
