Abstract: In this paper, an overview of the HAP concept development and HAP trails is introduced to show the worldwide interest and development in the emerging novel technology. A comparison of the HAP, terrestrial and satellite system characteristics is given. Main advantages of HAPs for wireless communication applications are large coverage area, high capacity and cost-effective deployment. Three applicable scenarios of HAP communication are shown.
