Mira Aerospace Successfully Delivers World's First 5G Connectivity From The Stratosphere


(MENAFN- Mid-East)

Test conducted in Rwanda Using Solar HAPS Aircraft.
● Marks Rwanda's first 5G-based Zoom call.
Mira Aerospace, a JV between Bayanat and UAVOS
announced that its“ApusDuo” solar aircraft has successfully conducted a 5G
connectivity test in collaboration with its partners.
The demonstration, conducted in Rwandan airspace by Mira Aerospace marked the
world's first successful delivery of 5G connectivity from a fixed-wing HAPS (high
altitude pseudo satellite) autonomous aircraft in the stratosphere. The 5G
connectivity demonstration follows a previous stratospheric flight test conducted in
Rwanda in June 2023, during which Mira Aerospace's ApusDuo carried a dummy
version of the payload.
The stratosphere-ready communications payload continuously delivered 5G
connectivity for approximately 73 minutes in the stratosphere during ApusDuo's
stratospheric flight, during which it reached a maximum altitude of 16.9 km. During
the test, the stratosphere-ready 5G communications payload enabled a 5G Zoom
video call, the first in the world.
The test system was composed of a service link from the communications payload
installed on ApusDuo in the stratosphere and a feeder link from a terrestrial 5G
base station. Since the radio waves transmitted and received operated on the same
frequencies as existing smartphones and devices, a regular 5G smartphone was
used in the test. The test also marked Rwanda's first 5G-based Zoom call.
