Challenge Overview


The Seeker collects data in outdoor fields all over the world. In rural areas, wireless internet connectivity for field data collection is not always possible. The Seeker needs innovative solutions to provide wireless internet connectivity for field applications. The desired solution should provide wireless internet connectivity to mobile handheld devices operating at a distance of up to 80km from a particular base station without a direct line of sight.

This is a Theoretical Challenge that requires only a written proposal to be submitted. The Challenge award will be contingent upon theoretical evaluation of the proposal by the Seeker.

To receive an award, the Solvers will not have to transfer their exclusive IP rights to the Seeker. Instead, they will grant to the Seeker a non-exclusive license to practice their solutions.

At the Seekers sole discretion, the winning Solver(s) may be invited to a Seeker-Solver event after the Challenge for continued discussions.
