“This is a crucial first step for sustainable exploration of the solar system. In order for humanity to leave the cradle of Earth, we need to develop infrastructures beyond our home planet,” stated PTScientists CEO Robert Böhme.

“With Mission to the Moon, we will establish and test the first elements of a dedicated communications network on the Moon.”

The 4G network will use the 1800 MHz frequency band for high-definition video transmission to a standalone navigation module (ALINA), which will then connect to PTScientists in Berlin.

Also, Nokia makes space equipment that weighs less than two pounds. 4G network is more energy efficient than analog radio, thus more data will be allowed being transferred between the rovers and the ALINA station.
