HAPSMobile Inc. is a subsidiary of SoftBank Corp. formed in December 2017 to plan and operate a high-altitude platform system (HAPS) business with the aim of bridging the world’s digital divide.
HAPSMobile successfully completed multiple low-altitude test flights in 2019 for its solar-powered unmanned aircraft system (UAS) designed for stratospheric communications at the NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center (AFRC) in California. The UAS is designed to serve as a stratospheric telecommunications platform system for delivering next-generation global connectivity.
