A Japanese and American company has entered into a partnership agreement with NASA to try out a new UAV on a solar battery. Perhaps in the near future the army of such drones will deliver even to remote corners of the Earth!
Huge UAV for high-altitude flights: carrying Wi-Fi
In the modern world there is a race, the main goal of which is to create a fleet of flying UAVs. Wi-Fi signal and permanently solve the problem with internet connection. However, Google and Facebook have already abandoned this venture. NASA decided to implement this idea.
AeroEnvironment was named Hawk 30, that is, Hawk-30. This is a relatively massive unit, equipped with 10 engines. His tests are conducted by the Armstrong Research Center, one of the divisions of NASA.
The Hawk differs from its predecessors not only in design, but also in potential. In 2001, the previous model, Helios, reached a height of over 28 kilometers - it was a real machine for the development of solar-powered aircraft. The competition was developed in Facebook under the name “Aquila”, which was comparable to that of the Boeing 737, but in 2017 the project was quickly turned off. Airbus is not only an opportunity, but also all new industry giants. Now, AeroEnvironment had to lay out about 800,000 NASA for overseeing and providing overground support for the upcoming tests scheduled for the end of June of this year.
