Loon

Planet-Scale Simulations
Accurately and safely operating our fleet requires understanding how the weather, various flight path restrictions, and our flights systems will interact over hours, days, weeks, and months. We have the ability to simulate up to 30 billion balloon days every calendar day to anticipate highly dynamic changes to our operating context.
Navigating at Scale
Loon’s navigational algorithms have guided our flight systems over 40 million kilometers— a distance equivalent to 100 trips to the moon.
