WHAT IS SKYCOM?
Skycom is an aerospace startup located in Austin, Texas.
Our High Altitude Lighter Than Air Platforms (HALTAPs) create low-cost cell towers in the sky, slashing mobile service providers’ cost of doing business and allowing rapid expansion into new markets.
HALTAPs will benefit a variety of industries outside of telecom as well, including defense, tv/radio broadcast, and scientific research.
Skycom's High Altitude Lighter Than Air Platforms (HALTAPs) are low-cost, geostationary airships that float above 60,000 ft altitude to create a high-speed wireless network in the sky.
The patented technology at the core of our HALTAP design revolutionizes the lighter than air industry, and will allow us to achieve what other technologies can't: the first affordable, long endurance telecom platforms in the stratosphere.
