08:18 EDTFBFacebook says aerospace, laser communications teams hit milestones
Facebook's Connectivity Lab team yesterday announced two milestones toward its goal to accelerate the development of a new set of technologies that can "drastically change the economics of deploying internet infrastructure." First, the team said "Aquila," the high-altitude, long-endurance aircraft designed by its aerospace team in the U.K., is now complete and ready for flight testing. "Aquila has the wingspan of a 737 but weighs hundreds of times less, thanks to its unique design and carbon-fiber frame. When deployed, it will be able to circle a remote region for up to 90 days, beaming connectivity down to people from an altitude of 60,000 to 90,000 feet," Facebook stated. Second, Facebook said its laser communications team achieved a "significant performance breakthrough," noting they’ve designed and lab-tested a laser that can deliver data at 10s of Gb per second, or approximately 10x faster than the previous state-of-the-art in the industry, to a target the size of a dime from more than 10 miles away. Facebook noted its team is now starting to test these lasers in real-world conditions. Reference Link
