Project loon

What is a project loon ?

Project Loon is a research and development project being developed by Google with the mission of providing Internet access to rural and remote areas. it goes 20 meters in the sky.

How the loon moves?

Wind in the stratosphere are generally steady and slow - moving at between 5-20 mph, and each layer of wind varies in direction. Project loon uses software algorithms to determine where the balloons need to go, then blows each one into a layer of wind blowing in the right direction. by moving with the wind, the balloons can be arranged to form one large communications network.

How the loon connects?

Each balloon can provide connectivity to a ground area about 40 km in diameter at speeds comparable to 3g.

Where the loon is going?

Project loon began with a pilot test in June 2013, when thirty balloons were launched from new Zealand's south island and beamed internet to a small group of pilot testers. The pilot test has since expanded to include a greater number of people over a wider area.
