In practice, the Portuguese researchers want to create a network of helium balloons that can be fixed in buoys along the sea, in boats or wind farms. These points will act as replicators of Wi-Fi or 4G signals, using for this purpose the long reach spectrum range that was previously occupied by analogue TV.
The Bluecom+ project will be in development by the end of this year, but already in the summer the entities will conduct a test of the concept in the marine environment. For it will be used two IPMA vessels that will serve as anchor points to balloons.
