Sceye is building the world’s most advanced, high-altitude platforms. Robust, versatile and solar-powered, they operate in the stratosphere at 65,000 feet. From here, they can deliver super-fast internet directly to device and high-resolution imagery of the Earth in real time.
Our mission is to use this pioneering technology to improve people’s lives and protect our planet.
Internet access is a basic right that improves healthcare, education, quality of life and democracy itself. Sceye can provide the first truly equitable connectivity across rural communities and urban centers — connecting underserved locations that have previously been out of reach.
We’re also committed to monitoring and protecting the Earth. Our platforms can carry advanced sensors that can track greenhouse gas emissions in real-time, supporting the development of enforceable, accountable climate-friendly policies.
Sceye believes that doing good is good business. We are committed to providing universal connectivity, and to enabling environmental stewardship.
We are creating a new and equitable service that works for everyone. We work with networks to extend broadband coverage to every corner, so that nobody’s left behind.
Sceye’s ability to lift and power more than any other platform and hold station in the stratosphere for months at a time, makes Sceye a superior solution to both satellites, terrestrial infrastructure and other HAPS (High Altitude Platform Stations).
By lifting a cell tower to this altitude, Sceye extends its reach 100s of times to improve the efficiency and speed, and because Sceye connects directly to any device – cellphone, tablet, PC – everyone can access a high-speed internet service from anywhere.
To deliver this breakthrough, we deploy state-of-the-art massive active MIMO array antennae and 3D beamforming technologies that deliver extended range, efficiency and a high quality of service — far beyond that of current systems.
Sceye platforms uniquely hold station for precise delivery of coverage where it’s needed, filling in all existing coverage gaps. Sceye complements existing ground networks by avoiding interference, efficiently re-using their spectrum to provide a compatible, reliable and rapidly scalable layer of network in the sky.
Sceye partners with business, government and academia to deploy persistent imaging and data collection services. We offer a versatile and high-resolution payload for real-time Earth observation and environmental monitoring.
Forest fires and land protection
Early detection and interception of disasters and environmental recklessness before they spiral out of control and destroy critical infrastructure, ruin wild areas and deplete our natural resources
Maritime search and rescue
High-resolution maritime monitoring to identify dark vessels, illegal activity and to take the ‘search’ out of search and rescue
Industrial emissions monitoring
We use sensors that monitor methane and other greenhouse gases in real time, providing a critical tool for enforcing climate targets
Science for the stratosphere
We’ve developed the most advanced materials

Sceye is a material science company leading a new generation of high-altitude platform stations, or HAPS. Our groundbreaking work will help transform lives.
Sceye’s success has been built on a meticulous iterative development and testing process combined with extensive flight experience, allowing us to create the most advanced product in the HAPS sector.
Our engineering team has a wealth of diverse expertise that combines the best of America’s Cup, aerospace and advanced academic research.
We chose the form factor of an airship over balloons and fixed wing aircrafts as it allows for geostationary capability while lifting and powering far more payload than any other platform.
Sceye is solar powered during the day and battery powered at night. We don’t rely on rocket fuel like satellites or single use plastics like balloons.
Working with our global partners, our mission is to connect and protect our planet from the stratosphere.
