In this paper, we give an overview of using High
Altitude Platforms (HAPs) for providing wireless
telecommunication and broadband communication services.
Comparisons of HAPs, satellite and terrestrial systems are
shown to illustrate unique characteristics of the system.
Three architectures for HAP systems are discussed in terms
of cooperation with terrestrial and satellite systems.
Telecommunication, broadband and disaster applications of
HAPs are shown based on system scenarios.
