HAPS: High Altitude Platform Station
When Alphabet spin-off Loon came to Schübeler Technologies to inquire about how to control their stratospheric balloons with electric fans, we advised that the requested low air volume flow would lead to a stall of a classic fan when pressurizing the ballonet. Instead, we designed a compressor that delivered high pressure at low volume flow in the stratosphere. Hundreds of Loon balloons were subsequently successfully deployed and operated. Lately, companies and governmental agencies seeking to deploy telecommunications and surveillance equipment in the stratosphere have shown interest in our compressors as altitude control devices for balloons carrying such equipment.
