DARPA, the US Defense Department’s advanced research agency, is trying to turn drones into hotspots for high-speed wireless networks, and it recently completed an initial testing and development phase on the program working toward that goal.
The development will be used to provide Internet access to the military units that are based in remote locations.
The major developments were in the creation of steerable antennas and efficient radio amplifiers for the hotspots. DARPA also created a housing for the hotspots, which will eventually be mounted on drones that have traditionally been used for surveillance.
The hotspot program began back in 2012, and it just started its second phase last month, in which it will begin to integrate the wireless radios onto ground vehicles. The hotspots will eventually be tested on a network of multiple drones in the third and final phase, theRunet reports.
