A Massachusetts company this week launched its first aerial cell tower resembling a big blimp from a new research and development center in Fremont.
According to officials from Altaeros, Wednesday’s test flight went off without a hitch, but it didn’t go unnoticed.
Known as a SuperTower, the tethered blimp that could one day provide cell coverage in remote areas hovered hundreds of feet over the launch pad and was quickly spotted by residents and passersby on Main Street.
