Think you're free for a few hours without Facebook while you're in the air? Think again. TechCrunch is reporting that Facebook is in discussions to purchase Titan Aerospace. They want to secure its own fleet of endurance drones to take internet to the air.
Titan's small aircraft are solar powered, which means they can stay in the air for up to five years at a time. Techcrunch's sources say that Facebook is interested in the drones as a means to deliver internet across the skies.
They have a grand plan of using 11,000 of the company's Solara 60 UAVs to provide data across Africa. Titan confirmed with TechCrunch that it has been in discussions with Facebook.
Titan's Solara drones can be launched at night using battery power, then take advantage of the sun when it rises, using solar technology to drive them up to 20 kilometers above sea level.
The drones don't need to land or refuel for up to five years, and Facebook might be buying them for $60 million.
