The present document is a technical and cost assessment of HALEs for telecommunications. This project will take a look at the potential of HALEs in telecommunications industry. It intends to objectively analyze and asses its current status.
This report will consist of a parametric model for assessing the impact of different variable on the viability of HALEs. It will take an array of inputs and give the potential performance and requirements for a viable unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). This will allow us to analyses the current status and the needs in order to have a viable and more importantly profitable platform. This analysis will include a case study in order to validate the results from the parametric model. Then a sensitivity analysis will take place in order to determine the impact of different technologies on the performance of the aircraft.
