The 200-foot-tall mobile towers combine wireless communication, connectivity and mobility for universal 5G access and EVSE charging systems.

The zero-emission, clean technology gives mobile and virtual network operators access to fixed wireless, Citizens Broadband Radio Service, neutral host applications, private networks and edge computing with 99.999 percent reliability in previously unreached locations.

“Fast food parking lots reached capacity in rural towns when the pandemic shut everything down because it was the only place where people could access the internet” said Aradatum President Larry Leete. “Aradatum can drop its towers absolutely anywhere the grid or service is unavailable to provide high-speed wireless broadband to anyone.”

Powered by a patented vertical-axis wind turbine, excess energy produced by the self-collapsing towers delivers upwards of 400 kW of power to offer fast charging for electric vehicle servicing equipment in any environment.

The $15 million will finalise scale models that are due March 28, as well as put four functioning towers in the ground in West Michigan, Maine, Kansas and on tribal land in Wisconsin in late 2022-early 2023. Manufacturing and engineering partners include Roush, Caterpillar, Twisthink and MAHLE.

Aradatum is a subsidiary of CGE Energy, Inc.
