The goal of the

Non-Terrestrial Connectivity

Solutions Project Group is to accelerate the innovation and deployment of non-terrestrial solutions to provide coverage to areas that terrestrial solutions cannot cover efficiently, with an initial focus on low density environments and quick response solutions for use in emergency situations.

Benefits: As an ecosystem, this group can begin the design and development of payload and network solutions for specific use cases that provide direct connectivity to UEs ensuring they will support the service requirements, operating model and cost structure required to unlock the business and generate the first success stories for connectivity and HAPs.

In order to design complete connectivity solutions, the Project Group has participants from the full value chain, including sky platform players, telecom tech vendors, operators, and service providers.

It is now time to consider the platform as an element of the telecom system and focus development on specific use cases, generating greater industrial scale and ensuring by design that coexistence with terrestrial coverage is possible.



NTCS Technical Requirements Document

This document explains the service requirements required for sky platforms providing coverage directly to smartphones, focusing on two initial use cases; connecting the unconnected and emergency response. The requirements will be used to design the communication solutions that will be fitted on the sky platform to provide this service.
