Jyoti Kapil

Abstract: Project Loon is a Project by Google with the aim of providing high speed internet access to rural and remote areas of the world via a balloon powered internet system. The project uses specially designed super pressure balloons powered by solar energy, which are placed and maneuvered in the stratosphere to create a wireless network up there to connect the rural and remote parts of the world with rest of the world. The project can be viewed as a stepping stone towards connecting marginalized world to the mainstream making it truly global.

Keywords: internet access, rural and remote areas, high altitude balloon powered network, stratosphere, solar powered, LTE technology
