Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: An information system formed by HAP (High Altitude Platform) will be a new generation-system for the wireless communications and HAPS (HAP Station) communication system combines the advantages of both terrestrial and satellite communication systems and avoids, to different extents, their disadvantages. Third generation (3G) mobile technology which is specified by the third generation partnership project (3 GPP) is definitely one of the candidates. With the success of wireless network, the IEEE 802.16 standard, with its wireless metropolitan area network (MAN) air interface appears to be a strong competitor. We provide initial practical comparison of these two technologies for HAPS Communication.


Keywords: HAPS communication, Broadband wireless access, Coverage, Wireless link.
