Enabling state-of-the-art communication services in rural areas with cost-effective and energy-efficient autonomous airborne platforms.
Headquarters United States
Altaeros' mission is to deliver the next generation of infrastructure to rural and isolated communities in emerging markets. They have developed a tethered aerial platform that can be used for a range of applications in energy, telecom, and agriculture. Their first commercial product, the SuperTower, delivers high-speed mobile broadband to hard-to-reach rural communities around the world. Deploying one SuperTower provides coverage equivalent to 30 conventional cell towers and saves significant energy costs. Their patented technology uses flight control innovations to eliminate the need for manpower to constantly monitor and operate the airborne platforms, drastically lowering the cost to deploy their systems.
