Indiana buoys a blimp for farming connectivity
Indiana’s agricultural community is awaiting the launch of an airborne IoT connectivity service.
Multiple media outlets reported that a small white blimp was spotted in flight above the Indiana town of Reynolds, which recorded a population of 533 in the 2010 census.
The aerostat will be the first of its kind in the U.S. to link up to rural IoT applications.
Small aerostats typically observe the ground below but can also be rigged up for remote farming connectivity.
They operate at higher altitudes than normal connectivity towers while absorbing a smaller footprint.
