The guarantee of the communication for a future human base on the Moon comes from Nokia. The 4G goes beyond the planet and it becomes an instrument to communicate with the terrestrial satellite.
The NASA chose Nokia
When it was born the idea and the need to create a fast and direct communication system between the Earth and its satellite, the NASA decided to work to a 4G network that allows to send messages to the human base that will be built on the Moon.
The NASA so chose Nokia to build the first mobile phone network on the Moon with a 4G power. The famous mobile phones company is creating a comunication system Lte/4G that will open the door for the human presence on the moon surface.
Nokia will have to build an ultra compact Lte network, with a low consumption, that resist to the Space climate. The works on this network might finish in the 2022 and the control of the system will be limited to the Nokia Bell Labs.
Why do we need a 4G network on the Moon?
This network will allow the data transmission, like command functions, the remote control of the moon rovers, the navigation in realtime and the transmission of high definition videos.
The idea is the one to create reliable communication networks, which are strong and high permorming that will represent the key for a stable presence of the humans on the moon surface.
Basically it is the first high performing wireless network on the Moon, that will allow to Nokia Bell Labs to plant the flag of the innovation beyond the conventional borders.
A pact of steel
4G and the human presence on the Moon
On the base of this project there is even the idea to create an environment perfect for the human life on the satellite. The man must so being able to use the Moon as a “pied-à-terre” for the future.
The innovations of Nokia will be used to help to prepare the way toward a sustainable human presence on the moon ground. It starts with the integration of the moon network 4G in the Nova-C Lunar Lander, the spacecraft created for the missions Artemis, to then being able to use it even on other devices.
The technology 4G represents the perfect kind of wireless coonection that the astronauts need, but especially the one that the common citizen will mostly use in the future.
A kind of technology that will give the essential communicative skills to the many operations that the astronauts will have to do.
The humans of the Space need, infact, a datas transmission for the remote control of the moon rovers, the high definition video streaming, the transmission of command and control inputs or the real time navigation.
In the future thanks to this project, even the normal citizen while going on the Moon will be always connected to the Home Planet. A further incentive for all the ones that loves the space and that are looking forward to visit it and to maybe live there one day.
