A communication system for supporting communications with a target market area. The system includes one or more solar-powered aircraft maintained in, or successively passing through, flight stations or flight patterns around the market area. Each of the aircraft targets limited beamwidth communication antennas on a substantial portion of the target market area. The control system is configured to fly selective flight patterns depending on the aircraft characteristics and the flight conditions. The flight patterns may emphasize high-power-generation patte...
1. A method of establishing a communication system for a target market area, comprising: stationing each of a plurality of aircraft in separate flight stations of a plurality of flight stations around the target market area, wherein each aircraft has one or more communication system antennas configured with a limited beamwidth;while each aircraft of the plurality of aircraft is in its flight station, targeting the one or more communication system antennas of that aircraft such that they support communication signals with a substantial portion of the targ...
