Towards an ESA Stratospheric High Altitude Pseudo-Satellites (HAPS) Programme


09 - 10 October 2017
NH Leeuwenhorst Hotel, Noordwijkerhout, The Netherlands


High Altitude Pseudo Satellites (HAPS) are stratospheric platforms that stay over a fixed point on Earth from weeks to months. Compared to ground-based systems, towers or aircraft, HAPS operate quasi-stationarily at an altitude of approximately 20 km. This allows them to complement or extend the capabilities of satellites in the domains of Earth Observation, Telecommunication and Navigation with the potential to further integrate with ground-based infrastructure. The European industry and research community is committed to develop HAPS systems while the advancing miniaturisation of sensor and communication technologies provides compact payloads compatible with the weight and power limitations of these platforms. Integrating HAPS into satellites systems offers new opportunities to provide improved products and services.

Capitalising on these developments, the European Space Agency is reaching out to the Earth Observation, Telecommunication and Navigation communities to present and discuss synergies between satellites and HAPS as well as to collect feedback and recommendations regarding a potential ESA HAPS programme.
