The Loon System
Balloon Powered Internet
Yesterday I have posted a telecom tower which flies in the air and provides the telecom signals to the masses. Today I am here with a balloon which delivers the internet connectivity while staying in the air. It is really helpful to those areas where internet connectivity is a major issue. Many rural areas can benefit from it and enjoy the basic need of today's age.
Loon has taken the most essential components of a cell tower and redesigned them to be light and durable enough to be carried by a balloon 20 km up, on the edge of space. Loon balloons are designed and manufactured to endure the harsh conditions in the stratosphere, where winds can blow over 100 km/hr, and temperatures can drop as low as -90° C.
It has a balloon and the flight equipment. The flight equipment is powered by the solar energy for the daytime and an onboard battery serves the nighttime.
