Google has a commercial interest in mind, that as many people spend as much time online. The company experimented with a wide range of technologies aimed at improving the population’s Internet access. The latest project in this context: solar drones to send the data in the millimeter-wave band. This brings two theoretical advantages. For one, so connect up to 40 times faster than current is possible. In addition, in this way, the launching its limits conventional mobile radio spectrum is not charged. As the British newspaper “the guardian” reported, Google is currently relevant experiments on the space station Spaceport America.

This originally served the company Virgin Galactic, but was hired by Google. Comprehensive tests are doing necessary, because the new technology will bring also their problems with them. Because the transmissions in the millimeter-wave band is extremely fast, but not so strong to reach. Google experimented with bundled and targeted signals and has built several receivers and signal amplifier therefore around the space station. The solar drones are also from Google itself. More specifically by the Google titanium. This was formed when the company bought up the drone specialists titanium aerospace. The Google drones have but little in common with the drones for private use: you have a wingspan of up to 50 meters and fly above the weather.
