Nokia selected by NASA to build first ever cellular network on the Moon

NASA has selected Nokia to build the first-ever 4G mobile network on Moon. Under its Artemis program, NASA plans to send astronauts to the moon by 2024 — for the first time in five decades — followed by a “sustainable” human presence by 2028.

The first ever wireless broadband communication technology by Nokia will be established at the end of 2022. Nokia collaborate with  Intuitive Machines  to make this project succesful. 

“The network will self-configure upon deployment,” the firm said in a statement, adding that the wireless technology will allow for “vital command and control functions, remote control of lunar rovers, real-time navigation and streaming of high definition video.” It plans to eventually launch 5G on the moon as well.

Nokia’s (NOK) Bell Labs was granted $14.1 million for the project. Bell Labs, formerly operated by AT&T, will partner with spaceflight engineering company Intuitive Machines to build out the 4G-LTE network.
