The HAPS Alliance unites companies from telecommunications, technology, aviation and aerospace industries to eliminate the digital divide and bring connectivity to more people, places and things worldwide by accelerating the promotion of high altitude platform stations (HAPS) in the stratosphere.
Alliance members collectively advocate the advantages of HAPS with relevant authorities in various countries, build a cooperative HAPS ecosystem, develop common product specifications and promote the standardization of HAPS network interoperability.
The HAPS Alliance's ultimate goals are to accelerate the commercial adoption of HAPS technologies and build a robust HAPS ecosystem.
Hasten the development and adoption of HAPS technology through industry-wide standards, interoperability guidelines, and regulatory policies.
Liaise with industry organizations by delivering focused and pertinent guidance relating to HAPS technology and market opportunities.
Build a safe and non-discriminatory HAPS ecosystem with telecom and aviation regulators.
Unify the voices of HAPS industry leaders into a compelling message for partners, regulators, and the public.
COMMERCIALIZATION: Demonstrate the industry's viability to potential customers and build a cooperative HAPS ecosystem.
INTEROPERABILITY: Develop product specifications and promote the standardization of interoperable HAPS network elements.
TELECOM: Advocate for global harmonization of HAPS spectrum at ITU and the national level; Influence emerging commercial standards, including 3GPP non-terrestrial networks.
AVIATION: Promote industry-managed cooperative separation in the upper airspace, including collaborative testing, simulations, and pilot programs.
